    As you probably know, some of the voices we feature are promotional, meaning they are only available for a limited time.
    We offer special voices for holidays, events, and just for fun.
    You can use these for the length of the promotion. When the promotion ends, your voice will reset to the default and the voice will no longer appear in the Sound menu.

    We hope that you enjoyed the voice while it was available and can’t wait to share more exciting voices to come!

    Want to try another voice?

    Tap Menu and tap the Settings wheel.
    Tap Voice & sound.
    Tap Voice Language and select the voice you’d like to use.

  4. ask for the direction of the car before calculating the route

    every driver had suffered from the common mistake WAZE makes while calculating a new route.
    in a two way street WAZE doesn't always know to which way i'm facing, and the entire calculation is based on that direction (because let's face it - you're not so high on U-TURNS, unfortunately).
    WHY WON'T YOU ALLOW THE DRIVER ANSWER (if needed) "to which way does your car face?"
    it will improve time, calculation and driver's satisfaction!
    PLEASE CONSIDER THAT SMALL YET HIGHLY HELPFUL FEATURE.
    (you don't have to name it after me, just do it...)

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    Setting the car’s direction when starting the app and navigation is a known matter which will be addressed in the future.
    There are many complexities in location tracking which cause this issue and hold us from providing a solution.
    It’s currently on the back burner, but definitely a part of the backlog.

  5. Add restriction for thru traffic

    The editor should offer a restriction against thru traffic. While standard guidance for these roads is to use "Private Road" type in the U.S., this road type is misleading, as many of these roads that prohibit thru traffic are in fact public roads.

  9. Bringing back celebrity voices as paid content

    Many new users may have missed promotional content involving celebrity voices and would love to have them back, even as paid content. While having limited time voices may bring in more users, keeping the voices after the promotion and allowing access for a fee will definitely bring in even more users .

    This idea has been being discussed for a while and recognized as an important user request.
    We hear the community’s voice and would like to share that while we can’t currently commit to a timeline, we do have plans to create a way to add more than one stop pre-drive.
    We’ll keep the community posted, please stay tuned!

  14. Drive plus walk

    Add option to find quickest route with additional walking. Many times waze navigates to exact location without taking into account faster route to near by location. I personally would rather walk an additional 100 meters to avoid sitting in traffic. This is especially warranted when using a taxi who relies on waze and additional cost is influenced by route. This feature can be an added route option without interfering with the basic platform most users prefer.

    Waze can currently direct your partial walking route when it’s a part of a drive or carpool.

  15. Make Waze AUTO sleep after 5 sec when Power is UNpluged while in the App

    Make a setting to make Waze AUTO sleep after 5 sec(or X sec, normal Waze countdown style Ok/Cancel box) when Power is UNpluged while in the app. This could be further improved with a "only within 5 mins of reaching a destination" setting.

    I think everyone that have Waze in the car has the phone on acc power and it would be so nice not to have to remember to Sleep Waze EVERY time I get to my destination.

  20. current road name

    I would like to see a feature similar to Garmin and other gps units that displays the current road I you ar driving on. This would be for when you are not using navigation directions but rather just driving around on day to day activity's. This could also replace the wording at the bottom of the screen that says something like good morning, which is where it could display the current street that you are on. This would helpful when I am out just driving around and want to know what street I am on with out looking for a…
