Waze, the popular Google-owned navigation app, is now offering a new driving experience based on the movie “Despicable Me 4,” which will be released in theaters on July 3rd. The Minions, the beloved characters from the franchise, are taking over the app and will be providing custom navigation instructions with their trademark humor and chaotic energy.There are two different moods to choose from: “Despicable” and “Mega Despicable.” In “Despicable” mode, users can expect to hear the Minions grumbling if they encounter traffic, while in “Mega Despicable” mode, the Minions will react more dramatically, perhaps even screaming to suggest taking a different route. Users will also have the option to change their vehicle icon in the app to Gru’s famous car, the Gru-Mobile.

This new feature is available worldwide and offers voice navigation in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. To access this experience, users need to make sure they have the latest version of the Waze app. Once updated, they can find the “Despicable Me 4” banner in the app’s left menu or activate it directly.
It’s worth noting that this feature is optional, and users can choose to disable it if they prefer the standard Waze experience. Additionally, the voice navigation feature is currently only available in the aforementioned languages, so users who speak other languages may not be able to fully experience the Minions’ dialogue.
