The actress who is popularly known for her role as Cinta on “Ada Apa Dengan Cinta?”, Dian Sastrowardoyo, will grace your ears on daily basis with her new collaboration. You can navigate the busy streets of Jakarta and Palembang with the guidance from her voice through a navigation app, Waze. It was just announced that the actress has been appointed as the official navigation voice for Waze. Different from the former voice’s version of Waze, Dian’s phrases and lines have been customized to match her popular role as Cinta as well as her upcoming project “Aruna & Lidahnya”. Some of the lines are taken from her dialogs of “Ada Apa Dengan Cinta”, so it must be a one-of-a-kind experience for the app’s users. As a sub-company under Google, Waze finds Dian Sastrowardoyo suitable for the company’s image. “Not only accomplished, Dian is a loyal user of Waze as well. The voice navigation feature enables our 4 million users to feel a distinctive safe-driving experience in Indonesia. It also shows our support towards Asian Games 2018,” said Marlin R. Siahaan, Country Manager, Waze Indonesia.
As a native Jakartan, Dian is familiar with the inevitable traffic jam there. As this traffic problem continues to spread in big cities across Indonesia, Dian has grown to be aware of it. “Of course I’m glad to be able to work with Waze, because I hope I could help all the users to reach their destination safely, as well as spread the spirit of Asian Games 2018. I want to celebrate the occasion and make it a memorable experience for millions of Indonesian,” said Dian Sastrowardoyo who took part in the Asian Games 2018 torch relay event a while ago.
