  1. Show inbox replies to messages in real time

    When a user replies to a message via the app inbox their reply is not shown in the conversation thread until they get another response from the other party involved.
    This shouldn't be a chat client but the app should show your replies as soon as you hit the 'Send' button.

  5. DON’T cover current speed with “speed limit” box when exceeding speed limit

    When I first started using Waze YEARS ago, you would just flash the speed limit and I think make it bigger when you exceeded the posted speed.. Now you flash the speed limit and place it OVER THE TOP of the current speed I am going. Now I cannot see how fast I am going and have to wait until you UNCOVER my current speed. Please stop doing that. I have to wait a few seconds got that to stop flashing the speed limit, before I can see how fast I am going. WHO thought this is a good idea?…

  7. Add a School tab to go along with Home & Work

    To go along with both the Home & Work tabs that already exist, I’d like the option to add where my college is to be able to quickly navigate or plan future routes to it. Thanks!

  10. electric vehicle mode germany

    Der electric vehicle mode ist bisher nur in der USA und Kanada verfügbar. Europa wird schon bald signifikant steigende Zulassungszahlen für BEV ausweisen, Google Maps hat Ladestationen schon als POI ausgerollt. Auf geht's, Waze, das schafft ihr locker.

  11. Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

    Would like the ability to report speed bump and know when speed bumps are coming up. A lot of neighborhoods have unpainted speed bumps in dark areas. Can be a real hazzard.

  13. Adding voice assistant

    There should be an option to activate the voice control automaticaly, just like you wake ip "alexa" or "siri", just saying "Hi waze" should be enough in order to do anything within the app.
    Navigating to a new location, adding a stop, finding parking spots/gas stations nearby, report traffic or anything else

  14. Add an opt out feature for Carpooling.

    We do not want to carpool. Husband handicapped and thus would not be feasible. Also, during pandemic, how stupid is it to carpool with strangers. It is a damn nuisance when it keeps popping up.

  15. Jeep Icon

    We need a Jeep icon to choose as our map Icon. I have a Jeep truck but would be ok with a Jeep in general. The current truck is for 18 wheelers.

  16. Inclusive maps for color-blind people

    I've been thinking of a problem Waze might find not that difficult to solve. Congestion leves are represented by different shades of colors, mainly yellows and reds. But lots of people around the world are color blind at some level, so the congestion colors are useless for them. I am suggesting that instead of simply using the plain shades of the colors, Waze star using hatched colors. This might be really helpful to a lot of people. Besides, this would help build an inclusive culture and policy.
