Kevin Hart wazeFollowing in the footsteps of the likes of TomTom, Waze has launched its first celebrity voice tie in, with American comedian and actor Kevin Hart.

Aside from being hilarious, the ‘Ride Along’ voice setting has been created to promote Hart’s upcoming theatre performance, in a show of the same name.

The free Waze app, which crowd sources real-time traffic data, has also launched on Windows Phone, putting it in direct competition with the pre-loaded Nokia HERE maps app.

Google bought Waze back in June for a reported $1bn and has begun integrating live incident reporting into its Maps service.
