MANILA, Philippines — A week after actress Rufa Mae Quinto posted a video on her YouTube channel showing her auditioning as a Waze navigation voice, the navigating mobile app responded to the comedian’s request on Twitter.

“Hey @imrufamaequinto, no need to audition. You can make your very own Waze Voice using your Waze app. Just head to Settings > Voice Directions & get recording. Bonus: you can share them with everyone via a link,” Waze tweeted.

The “Home Sweetie Home” mainstay also posted on her Instagram account a screen cap image of the navigation app’s tweet. She captioned her post: “Grabe yung ka tweet ko ang waze and gusto nila ako gumawa ng waze voice ko! Haha ! Salamat sa lahat. @waze”
