Waze Adds New Phrases to Popular Mimiyuuuh Voice Repertoire
Striving to make their app as user-friendly as possible, Waze has been providing users with the option to choose the voice that gives them directions. One of the more popular voices offered by the app comes from Mimiyuuuh, a social media influencer who started out posting humorous videos on Instagram.
Waze added Mimiyuuuh’s voice to the app during December of last year, bringing plenty of holiday cheer to users when the option first came out.
The popularity of the voice option is what prompted Waze to add more phrases to the repertoire.
Here is a sampling of Mimiyuuuh’s latest phrases:
“May crash reported ahead daw po, opo! Traffic ang abot natin nito, mag-vocalizationism ka muna dya-an!” and “Turn left! Rawr rawr rawr!” which Waze hopes will inject more fun and laughter entertaining drivers on the road.
Mimiyuuuh, born Jeremy Sancebuche, is the second Filipino personality to appear on the GPS navigation app after Miss Universe 2018 winner Catriona Gray.
Available to users in the Philippines until the 31 March 2020, the exclusive Lazada Ambassador’s Waze voice option is a collaboration with Lazada, and is aimed at delivering the best driving and navigation experience for its users.
Mimiyuuuh said, “Rawrrr! Thank you po talaga sa mga natuwa sa Waze voice ko po. Ito pong latest update sa aking Waze voice ay pinili ko from the suggestions ng aking mga supporters. Sana po mas magustuhan pa ng marami yung update. Super thankful din po ako sa Lazada at Waze for making this possible. Nag-enjoy po ako ng sobra mag-record ng voice. Don’t forget to watch my latest vlog tungkol dito po, opo.”
“Waze is dedicated to giving our users the best time on the road. Now we’re able to make their drives even more enjoyable by having Mimiyuuuh continue to guide and entertain them on their way to their destinations. ” said Sarah Rodriguez, Country Manager of Waze PH.
added, “I am so pleased with the successful partnership with Waze,” said Neil Trinidad, Lazada Philippines’ Chief Marketing Officer. “At the same time, it is such a great privilege to have Mimiyuuuh be part of the Lazada family and be in the lives of Filipinos in a positive way as she is a great embodiment of joy.”
