For a limited time, users can download the voice of former NBA all-star Shaquille O’Neal to guide them on the road.

Basketball fan or not, whose morning commute wouldn’t be improved by Shaq telling them “Don’t cause a Shaqcident!” or “Police reported ahead. Don’t be Shaqtin a fool!”?

Shaq’s voice is available for download starting April 13th for a limited time during the playoffs. To select his voice, go to Menu → Settings → Sound → Voice Language → Shaquille O’Neal.
