Waze drivers looking for a drive back in time can now do so with the new ‘Retro Mode,’ which lets users set the mood to the ‘70s, ’80s, or ‘90s with new voices, vehicle icons, Moods, and TuneIn playlists for each decade.
Set your vibe on Waze to ‘70s peace, love, and happiness with an eccentric radio DJ as your host and navigator, a flower-power “El Vanarino” as your vehicle, and a groovy lava lamp Mood.
If Jazzercise is more your speed, break a sweat with an ‘80s aerobics instructor to guide your journey, while you maneuver in a Rad Racer sports car with a “Pumped!” boombox Mood.
Or you can head back to the ‘90s in your classic two-door “SUV4EVA” while a pop star helps you avoid traffic and the paparazzi.
Retro Mode celebrates personalities and trends from the years most firmly cemented in today’s pop culture. Turn your next drive into a trip down memory lane with nostalgic moods, voices, and cars.
Also starting today, audio streaming service TuneIn is partnering with Waze to deliver the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s songs, allowing you to seamlessly access your favorite nostalgic bops directly via the Waze app.
For a drive that transports you to a new decade, click “My Waze” in your Waze app and tap the “Drive with the 80’s” banner to activate. It’s available globally, in English, French and Portuguese, for a limited time.
