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.

This needs adding ASAP for any changes on the route that involve taking a specific lane without this forces people to use other apps instead

make it work with android auto as well
My phone is a Samsung S10 and the lane assistance works fine with Waze. I get a black background with white arrows wich give the lane i need to take. Sorry for my Belgian accent :-)

Please, this is the only reason I have to use other GPS software at times.
This is a standard feature in many other GPS apps and is one of the main things that Waze doesn't yet support.
Implémenté dans Google Maps et TRÈS UTILE !

Any idea when?

Yes, cant believe this isnt part of it already since Waze is under google now. Probably like a redhead stepchild sorta thing?! Anyway I have to use Google when traveling outside the norm and Waze on my regular routes. Dumb.
How can we help Waze to bring this feature up to speed? We desperately need it on Waze. I still have to use google maps for navigation, while keeping Waze running in the background. :(
This is an essential feature while driving in cities. I am surprised that an app as popular as waze doesn't have this feature. Our cities are getting complex for driving, knowing the lane to be in would increase driver safety many fold.
How can we bring this essential feature to the Waze team's notice?

there is an app called "HereWeGo", the lane assistance is absolutely accurate. Have tried it in Singapore and Malaysia, have not encountered any traffic junctions without getting the wrong information on which lane is turning only, straight only or turning+straight going lane.
Too bad that app is not available in CarPlay, its other features are also not as good as Waze
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.
100% needs to be added. Google navigation has it and you can navigate much easier knowing the lane your supposed to be in. When I recommend Waze to other users that have used any other android navigation. First complaint they tell me about is the lack of lane assistance.
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.
