Google-owned mapping app Waze was today updated with support for the Siri Shortcuts feature that Apple introduced in iOS 12.

With Siri Shortcuts in Waze, you can record shortcuts for your drive home, drive to work, favorite locations, and more, all of which can be activated with a simple Siri voice command.

Waze is a popular Apple Maps alternative on iOS devices as it is known for its accurate traffic and hazard alerts, along with time-saving routing changes.

Siri Shortcuts for Waze can be set up by opening up the Settings app on the iPhone, navigating to “Siri & Search,” and tapping the “Shortcuts” button. From there, either scroll down to the Waze section or search for Waze.

You will need to have your home, work, and favorite locations set up within the Waze app for those options to show up.

Waze can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]
