Waze is bringing "PAW Patrol" into its navigation, and these voices and avatars could soon replace your daily drives into a kid-friendly experience that would help when stowing the young ones along. The collaboration would feature popular characters from the children's series with Ryder, Chase, Marshall, Skye, Rubble, and more.
The popular navigation app is known for its nifty features, as well as special voices that come in season or occasion, with the likes of Santa Claus dropping by during the holiday seasons.
Waze PAW Patrol
As revealed by Waze via its official Twitter account (@waze), the social driving app is debuting the popular series from Canada's Spin Master Entertainment as a theme within its services. The collaboration brings the adventure buddies of Ryder and Chase, which go around the neighborhood to save the day and solve conflicts.
The focus of "PAW Patrol" and Waze are similar, as both aim to clear the roads and give those that use it a safe and unbothered day as they go on to do their businesses. Both are also based on technology, which uses innovations in tools and equipment.
Users can "activate" the experience on the Waze app, and it would help in bringing the "moods" or voices to be used, replacing the default or preferred one. "PAW Patrol" is an extremely popular children's series franchise that has been embedded in modern popular culture.
How to Change Voices to PAW Patrol-Themed Content
Waze has announced this feature via Medium in a press release, and it is easy integration with the application to switch with the theme, which is special for this month. However, it remains unknown whether how long "PAW Patrol" would stay within the application, if it would still be available after this month.
Each drive would be treated as a "mission," with mission command "Ryder" would be the voice to navigate the puppies in their everyday venture to go from one place to another.

- Click on "My Waze" or slide to the right to access the side menu
- Scroll down and look for "Drive with PAW Patrol"
- Click on "Activate the Experience"
- Choose your moods and icons on how you would be seen on the road
- Turn on "Let PAW Patrol Guide You" to get Ryder's voice
