Waze can't hear my voice

Postby kinnder4 » Wed Apr 03, 2013 1:46 pm

Hi All,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 running Android 4.1.2 and when I try to input a voice command, such as "report traffic," Waze doesn't hear my voice. I've tried issuing quite a few different commands, and after Waze asks me to "try again" it seems to give up and says "cancel." I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Waze, but that didn't work. Anyone else having this issue, or does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

Yes I have the same issue. I've not been able to get waze to hear/understand any voice commands. Same symptoms - no matter what I say I get back "try again" a couple of times and then "cancel." I haven't yet tried to figure out why or fix it. I will note that I can use the native voice recognition with no problem to search for destinations by hitting the microphone button on the navigate screen, so it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem.

Glad to know it's not just me, but having this not work really stinks, because reporting while driving using my hands is not very safe. Can this be reported as a bug?

My S3 is running stock Android 4.1.2. Nothing custom on it in that regard. :)

Same issue here. Waze understands my first 2~4 voice commands, then it does not understand any other voice commands after that. I had this happen on my HTC One S, Samsung G2, and the Samsung Exhibit.

Doesn't work on my Casio Commando, either.

Same problem here. GS3, stock Android 4.1.2. A few months ago voice commands for traffic or hazards used to work. But no more. What is frustrating though is that once I reach my destination, if I wait for a bit and fire up waze again, and "test" a voice commanded hazard, it hears me just fine. It's only when I'm underway it doesn't work. A fix here would be HUGE, because as mentioned by others, feeding back this sort of road intel to the community via screen taps is way to dangerous. The voice idea and menu structure I think was well thought out (when it worked for me way back when anyway). But now I am no longer able to contribute feedback to the community. :cry:

Same here with my iPhone 5. At first, I thought it just didn't like my jawbone, but when I disabled that, and spoke directly to the phone, it wouldn't "hear" me, no matter how loud or soft I would speak. Frustrating sometimes when I can't send an alert, since there's not much to do at that point, especially when you're driving.

To enable bluetooth headset integration for voice commands, use the Prefer Bluetooth option on iOS Waze. On Android, the option for this is in the OS settings somewhere. (Not an Android user am I.)
