Let Morgan Freeman guide you through Atlanta traffic


Actor Morgan Freeman isn't just driving Miss Daisy -- he's driving anyone with Google’s free navigation app, Waze.

Freeman has been added to the app's list of celebrity voices that will help guide you through traffic.

While Freeman certainly has one of the most recognizable (and sometimes soothing) voices in Hollywood, the addition of Freeman to the voice line-up is designed for more than just user pleasure.

It also happens to be a promotion for Freeman's latest film, London Has Fallen. Freeman stars as vice president in the movie.

On the Waze app, he addresses the driver as if he/she were president. Freeman's voice joins other voice options on Waze including Colonel Sanders of KFC and a Boy Band option.

To get it, download the Waze app , go to Settings>Sound> Voice Language and choose Morgan Freeman.
