Mute navigation during phone call.
When making or taking phone calls using bluetooth, waze navigation prompts often interrupt me. The person on the other end of the line can't hear the prompt, but it means either I miss what they're saying, or my train of thought is interrupted mid-sentence.
It would be useful for the client to auto-mute during a phone call.
I use Waze via BT in my car often along with streaming music, and when I get a phone call, Waze does mute itself as does the music, so I do not have this issue. Not sure if it's the phone (Galaxy S5) or Waze that does the muting.
I have the same idea, but 'mute' maybe can cause a problem if you not be attecntion in traject. The solution maybe is 'mute' the voice of waze, but sound a 'beep' and sinalize directions.
I completely agree

The feature appears in options under advanced sound but it doesn't seem to work on my Samsung edge 7.

I have the feature on Android, but it doesn't seem to work.
Good idea, maybe at the exception of alerts

My Waze don´t have this feature. It´s updated. Android.
You actually can mute Waze during calls. Go to Settings on waze > Sound > then turns on the option for "Mute Waze during call"

I drive for Lyft and Uber. We need this feature badly.
Please make this an option in Android! Please, please, please! Thanks!
google doesn't care commented
NO. I prefer directions during a call.
This needs to be an OPTION
Mike Gregory commented
No options for this on my android device sadly. Back to Google maps until this is sorted
I saw in comments that someone said that this was available in the US, I don't see that option among my sound settings.
Don't talk on the phone while driving. Hands free or not it's still distracting

I have it set to mute but it is not working on mine. Perhaps programming needs to look at this.
כמשתמש אני זקוק לגישה ישירה לויסות עוצמת הקול במכשיר. אני נוהג להשתמש ברמקול של המכשיר ומשאיר את השימוש בחיבור הבלוטות' לקבלת שיחות טלפון בזמן נסיעה. כאשר אני מקבל שיחה בבלוטות' אני מעוניין להחליש את עוצמת הקול של וויז שממשיכה להשמע ברמקול המכשיר.
הגישה היום לשינו עוצמות הקול מאוד לא נוחה, וביחוד בזמן נסיעה. האם אפשר להוסיף על תצוגת הרמקול על המפה - שני לחצנים נוספים (+/-) שיאפשרו העלאת והורדת עוצמת השמע? זה יקל מאוד על השימוש.

Google Maps has this functionality
To turn this feature on/off, Tap the Wazer icon in the lower left of the screen > Tap Settings > Tap Sound > Toggle Mute Waze during calls
It is HERE! This feature was released in the US today!! And, it is user-selectable as to whether it is on or off. Perfect!
Thank you, Waze, for finally responding to this request, even though it was many years coming!!
