Google-owned community-based navigation app Waze has announced actress Dian Sastrowardoyo as its latest celebrity narrator to celebrate the 2018 Asian Games.

In this new feature, Dian, who became one of the event's torchbearers, accompanies drivers by narrating some of the popular dialogue from her films, such as Ada Apa Dengan Cinta (What's Up with Cinta) and Aruna dan Lidahnya (The Birdwoman's Palate).

"Dian has a suitable characteristic with our brand. Not only an accomplished celebrity, she is also a loyal user of Waze. Our latest navigation narrator feature allows a safe and fun riding experience for the 4 million Waze users in Indonesia. Collaborating with an inspiring figure like Dian further proves our commitment in the Indonesian market, as well as shows our spirit in supporting the 2018 Asian Games," said Waze Indonesia country manager Marlin R. Siahaan in a statement.

Users can activate this new feature by accessing Settings > Voice Direction > Waze Voice > English US/Bahasa Indonesia Dian Sastrowardoyo-Asian Games. It was released for Android and iOS devices on Aug. 18 and will run during the period of the Asian Games.

Waze previously updated its feature to accommodate the new odd-even policy to allow users to further manage their travel time during the event. Drivers can access Settings > Navigation > License Plate Restriction to input their vehicle plate number and receive the best route recommendation. (kes)
