"alerts only" mode should include rerouting notifications
Currently, there are 3 sound modes, which is great. "On", "Off" and "Alerts Only". I use "On", when I've never been there before and "Alerts Only" during my daily commute. I love the Alerts Only mode for a daily commute. Problem is, sometimes Waze sees an issue ahead during my commute and only makes a screen notification. I'd really want to be alerted about that.
So I'd like "Alerts Only" to consider a rerouting notification as an alert and not 'normal' navigation instructions.

Yes. Having an audible notification that you’re being rerouted would be very helpful. This past weekend we had Alerts Only on and missed that we were being rerouted.

October 2018 and this feature still needs to be added. Drives me nuts when it's changed the route and I don't know until it is too late.
Yes. Would like to see an option (in more sound option settings) to automatically switch to Sound On when being rerouted
Agree 100%. Annoying how many times I've said "whoa - looks like traffic is stopping up ahead", only to glance at the Waze screen and see that it had rerouted telling me to take the exit that I just passed...
Oh hell yes.
... and it would also be bloody great if the mute function could have it's own persistent onscreen button (like the Menu and Report buttons) rather than having to access it through the Menu display.
