  1. Floating window or button

    After a new android update the waze no more returns automatically to be an active window. I think it's a good idea to show floating button to return to waze or show floating window with active navigation.

  2. Remove Chit-Chat option for Iranian users

    The Iranian people use this option for political purposes and insult to each other and racism. This has led Iran's government to ban this great app in the country.

  3. Please open Carpool for Guatemala to reduce traffic

    Please open Carpool for Guatemala to reduce traffic

    Great benefits to bring Carpool to Guatemala: -


    • Reduce the amount of cars on the road during peak hour traffic (4 am-10am) and (4pm-9pm). At this time, it is blocked to the network and can take up to 3 hours to enter and leave the capital (Guatemala City)

    • Car ownership is prohibitively expensive

    • Public transport is risky and not reliable.

    • be environmentally conscious of the earth because they are more economical people in movement

    Help our little Country to be better and more responsible. Help to bring Waze Carpool to Guatemala

    Alternative…

  7. Add favourite song button on players (spotify/tidal/youtube ect.)

    In music apps we have got 3 buttons (left play/pause and right). I propose to add button "add to favourite (heart)" There are a lot of situations when you are driving, some random playlist is playing and one of the songs is so good you wanna add it to your favs - now you need to stop, switch to music app, add to fav and go back on road.

  8. Increase speed limit size display pleaseeee!!!!!

    The speed limit display is far too small and hard to see, would be good for it to be a lot larger, or give an option to increase the size to whatever the user wants. Please

  9. "EV Charging" instead of "Gas Stations"

    You can already tell Waze that you're driving an electric vehicle... so why do I still see "gas stations" as an option? Google Maps already has EV charging station POIs - let us select "EV Charging" instead of "gas stations"!

  10. Lane Closure Feature

    Under construction, there should be a feature added that we could select to show that there is a lane closure.

    We should also be able to select whether it is just one lane closed or two lanes and whether it is the lanes on the right or left of us.

    And a feature to show that only one lane is currently opened.

  12. A confidence meter

    Essentially a meter that displays a grade of confidence in current reports based on the amount of wazers passing through an area. A highway in the middle of LA would require a higher amount of wazers as the chances of a new speed trap being set up or a blown tire happening is more likely.

    Let say the H1 here in hawaii gets 100 wazers driving through every hour in busy times. During busy hours it would require 5 wazers every 10 minutes to get a grade of A in cofidence. If it dips down to 5 wazers in 15…

  13. Witness me

    I am a very enraged American at what is happening to our people of color and the less fortunate when It comes to police interactions. You guys already have an app infrastructure and feel you could easily add features to make this happen. I want an app called witness me. So all you have to do it press the button on the screen and it sends a push notification to everyone that has the app downloaded within a certain area. I want something to get people to band together so stupid shit doesn’t keep happening. Larger crowds would mean more…

  14. Voice alert for police when approaching fron either direction

    Right now I only get voice alerts for police when travelling in the same direction as the user who marked the police. Often the cop is able to watch traffic from both directions so it would be nice to be warned when coming from either direction.

  15. Need speed limits for towing a trailer

    When pulling a trailer the speed limits are different so we need an option for towing a trailer so the speed limit will change.

  17. Always allow to use the options to report problems, even after arriving ;-)

    Always allow to use the options to report problems like roadworks ect., even after arriving or interrupted trip. Why not? 🤷🏼‍♂️

    My trick now is to start the navigation again to the same destination and hit the report botton who just came available again😄👍

  18. public transport services

    Please consider the public transport services as a transit option to waze users community (rail services as a metropolitan “backbone” mobility solution for congestion).

  20. I would like more funny and amusing voices to be made available for your Canadian users . I have seen this suggested many times but nothing

    I would like to have more funny and amusing voice options be made available for your Canadian users. I have seen this suggested so many times but nothing has been done about it. Currently I have to use Jane because she is one of the few that have the street names option so why not make street names on more of the voice and create some new ones please.
