How to get Cookie Monster back to Waze

Author: Vladimir Brown

The Waze navigation app is convenient thanks to the settings, it can be adapted to your needs. One of the settings involves changing the assistant's voice. Using the options you can change the voice guidance. The app will inform you of the events in the voice you give it.

Very often Waze users ask how to turn on the Cookie Monster voice, and if it is possible to do this on iPhone or Android.

It is worst to say that the Cookie Monster feature was added to Waze not long ago. This was done to coincide with Cookie Monster's birthday. What's more, it's a feature, so it's quite possible that it may not be available at the moment - and you can check it out at the same time.

Cookie Monster is currently available in the US and Canada. That hasn't changed as of 2022, and it's likely that the CM voice isn't available in other regions.

To activate Cookie Monster voice you will need to download a special language pack and change the voice through the settings. Here are the manual on how to do it.

Selecting the desired voice in Waze is quite easy. To do this:

Step 1. Download Waze app.

Step 2. Launch the Waze on your mobile device.

Follow the link on your mobile device

As an alternative, just type in Google Cookie Monster Waze voice and follow the first link.

Step 3. Tap the item to download Cookie Monster voice to your Waze.

Go to Settings by tapping on My Waze -> Settings.

Step 4. Navigate to Voice and Sound to find the Audio Settings.

From the Add a voice section, activate Cookie Monster option.

Step 5. To see the list of options, tap on Waze Voice accordingly.

Step 6. Save the applied settings. You may have to restart the navigation device for Cookie Monster to hear the needed voice.

Waze offers many other voice options besides Cookie Monster. For example, it can be the voice of Johnny Depp, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, or other characters.

These options are available as downloadable voice packs. They can be activated the same way as described above. The user can also record their own voice and use it to dub events while navigating.
