Veteran actor Morgan Freeman has granted his voice to Google’s GPS naviagation app Waze.

Twice the voice of God (Bruce Almighty, Evan Almighty), Freeman’s dulcet tones are now available to users of the Waze app.

The brand claims claims Freeman was the most requested voice users - with it no stranger to special celeb partnerships.

The move comes as part of a tie-in with Freeman’s latest flick, London Has Fallen. As a result the voice will only be available for a limited time.

Previously, to promote the release of Terminator: Genisys, Arnold Schwarzenegger lent his voice to the app.

Waze was founded in Israel in 2007. Google acquired the start-up in 2013.
