While using Waze on highways lately, I have begun to think that having the ability to see what lane becomes the off ramp would be great, especially in complex city interchanges.
Portuguese: Estava usando o Waze em rodovias e comecei a pensar que seria ótimo ter a capacidade de ver qual pista pegar, especialmente em trevos complexos dentro das cidades.
Spanish: Últimamente me he dado cuenta que al utilizar waze en capitales se hace muy necesario que waze indique cual carril de una calle, avenida o autopista, llega a ser una rampa, especialmente en complejos intercambios.
Do you all have any intentions on adding lane assist to Waze? What can we do to help assist and speed up this development? This is such a needed feature that can help both the old and the young navigate in complex cities and not have to cut people off and even lose their lives due to road rage. People use your app everyday and all we're asking is that you help save lives and prevent accidents by implementing lane changing so that folks can continue their safe driving. Please, please be mindful and help us to arrive alive at our destination by adding Lane Assist.
Unbelievable this isn’t already implemented
A must have
Just a simple color change is enough, my friend uses Waze and I am usually the Navigator so he can focus on driving, the amount of times I didnt notice we had to take the off ramp is more than I can count

This would be great! Ideally something similar to Google maps as this perfect for routes you are unfamiliar with! Especially at roundabouts

Seems trivial to implement by adding lanes to turns.
For example, if there's an exit with 2 lanes, then the turn for that exit would make two exit arrows.
Take this a step further and add lane counts to segments and that would then allow the app to draw arrows for all lanes appropriately. For example, a 3 lane road, with an exit of two lanes, would show three arrows, two exiting, and one straight.
Trivial to implement from a UI/Editor standpoint, much more complex from a routing engine standpoint I guess.

Would love this! Definitely one thing that Google Maps has that Waze needs, it was reason why I switched to Google Maps for a short while.
I would love this! I have a Garmin with lane assist and it's invaluable. I bought a car that has carplay and like how Waze integrates with the car eliminating the need for built-in GPS and my Garmin, but I really miss lane assist.

The one thing that GMaps does that I wish it was on waze. Please
Waze solo falta asistencia de carril
Any chance this feature will be implemented before the 10th anniversary of this suggestion? ;)
The fact that WAZE is not displaying what lanes to follow for interchanges or turns etc. while other navigation apps do that for a time now, tells me that this may be an "internal" issue with Google Maps competition. Can't think of other reasons (and I've seen that "competition" among product teams in a company before). So, while nobody will ever admit that in public, there's no other reason to not develop that feature for so many years that people ask about it.

Completely agree. Maps has this in two ways:
- Group of arrows at the instructions bar, with the ones you don't need dimmed.
- Voice instructions tell you which lanes to use.
lane guidance is a must to have........
Any updates in this feature? There are many comments around the Webex about Waze being abandoned and this feature never going to be released as result.
Tim Thompson commented
very handy in places like Georgia and Illinois that seem to suddenly add a lane on the left and turn the right lane into an exit lane with no warning.

This needs to be added. I hear many people who won’t use Waze because this feature isn’t included
Is it possible to display as "overlay" to show in detail multi lane during the taking of exit.
In detail window shows multilane and navigation recomends which needs to be taken by highliting it.
Add lane assist, lane guidance to Waze.
This is crucial when navigating in unknown territory - this needs to be added!
