  1. windows phone app NEEDS voice command feature!

    Waze is supposed to be hands free, however, for Windows Phone users, there is no voice command feature available! That means it is Not hands free... Please make an update to allow Hands Free Voice Commands available for all users to keep driving safe for everybody.

  2. Adding voice assistant

    There should be an option to activate the voice control automaticaly, just like you wake ip "alexa" or "siri", just saying "Hi waze" should be enough in order to do anything within the app.

  4. Short Tone instead of voice.

    Would love a simple tone as a turn approaches. Too often even the curtest voice directions obscure my podcasts.

  5. improve voice recognition

    I assumed that Waze was using similar voice recognition engine to Google. But I have the worst time getting Waze to recognize my voice. It's not me nor my phone. I can say to Waze "Ok Waze report police ahead" and nine times out of ten it'll say "sorry I didn't recognize that". If I hit the home button (to bring up home screen and have Google Assistant take over) I can say Ok Google take a note report police ahead" and it'll correctly create a note "report police ahead"

    I assume that Waze's voice recognition would be better than…

  7. Add voice command for other countries

    I think voice command should be made available to other countries too since that way it`ll be much easier to navigate and report.

  9. Search icon instead of voice

    Modern versions of Android have a voice input option on the virtual keyboard itself. Basic UI guidelines should dictate the icon where the voice-entry button is at the end of text input fields should do the action (search) not bring up voice input.

    Move the voice icon lower and bigger for users who are driving, and make the button beside the input window the search button (as 'enter' currently does on the keyboard).

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    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.

  17. Voice search button for destinations using apple carplay.

    Carplay voice input was taken away (microphone icon). I can no longer search via voice for directions to any place. Now I can only use iphone maps or google maps. Seems strange to remove a vital feature as now I cannot get directions to places with my voice.

  18. Jai Haze for New Waze Voice

    Jai Haze is a well known YouTube Vape Reviewer with a comedic voice that’s a cross between Vince Vaughn and Jersey Shore, let’s get Jais Voice on Waze, Jammies and all, to bring his comedic wittiness to our morning commutes! Can you just play him in the backround of Waze? Yes you can obviously but wouldn’t it be more of a fun matrix like commute with him reviewing the new Vape Device in the backround and him also telling you to turn your Jammy left?
