Currently available in English and in U.S and Canada.
Will be available to other countries as well soon.
Why are people from other countries use voice commands for reporting of incidents even if they want to do so in English?
I have my phone in English, Waze is in english and voice navigation is in English. But still the voice commands option is hidden from me in the settings menu.
The voice commands are only enabled for the countries in which street names can be recognized from voice. This is a very stupid reason for not allowing people to use voice commands to report incidents (and navigate to their favorite places). This can be easily done for all the languages supported by google's voice recognition engine.
I use Tasker app to do this for me. However I had to teach Tasker to simulate taps on the screen as the Waze API is very poor and only for navigation.
To properly close waze: Send Intent[Action: Eliran_Close_Intent, Cat: Default, Package: com.waze, Target: Broadcast Receiver]
To navigate to a favorite location: Send Intent[Action: android.intent.action.VIEW, Cat: Default, Data: waze://?favorite=%destination&navigate=yes]

What we are aiming to do here is speed based alerters.

Lane assist is the reason why I use a different navigation app when abroad. Please add it to Waze so that it can be perfect.
To alert drivers about cyclists on the road (1 notification per group of cyclists), this is a splendid idea!
Sygic navigation navigates through tunnels at the last known speed. If you change the speed until you get the GPS signal again, the pointer simply jumps forward or backward. Simple and effective.
Great news! The Waze Beacons Program is in the works and constantly expanding.
The Waze Beacons Program is the first scalable, affordable solution in the world to power navigation in tunnels. Currently available in select tunnels throughout Pittsburgh, Haifa, Israel, Paris and Rio de Janeiro – seamless navigation is available to Wazers underground simply by turning on Bluetooth functionality.
