As a matter of safety, we need a voice selection preview option
The fact that users cannot hear a sample of the voice options when selecting them before a trip creates a dangerous incentive to adjust that setting while driving.
Please add the ability to listen to a sample of each voice option in the settings.

you can read this to know that this needs to be in the app to Safety No1 Priority https://www.johnfitch.com/blog/ohio-driving-safety-laws/

Eight years. EIGHT years. EIGHT _YEARS_! Just precisely how far do you have your head up your backside that you haven't even assigned an intern code-monkey to this at some point in the last eight flipping years? Do you understand, at _ANY_ level, how stupid this makes your team look? In pretty much ANY app, for ANY reason, when the user makes a preference change, there is some simple way to immediately experience that preference change. Would you leave "language selection" or "dark mode" settings without some way to experience them BEFORE getting into a fully routed drive? NO. You let the user experience their choice immediately or almost immediately. Is your code base such garbage that it is actually DIFFICULT to get a selected voice to say something? I mean, it should just be adding "say('Hello, it's nice to meet you')". But how could it possibly take you -- and I know I'm getting extremely repetitive, but I have to say this again -- EIGHT DAMNED YEARS to do something that simple? Which suggests to me, a software engineer, that your code base is so hopelessly baroque and fragile that I shouldn't be trusting it with any decision making...
