I have tried all the commands on the list, and when it works it works, but once I start driving after the first command or so, that is the end of it. It won't accept any more commands at that point.

Well I tried all kind of things today and cannot get Voice commands to work properly with my 3 week old phone. I even tried giving Google some voices, and Google has no problem in understanding. Guess I will have to stick with pressing the screen to send alerts, etc.

It's not that it can't hear you, it's that it doesn't understand what you've said, the message is misleading.

I have a Nexus 4 and have great difficulty getting Waze to hear voice commands. It works sometimes, and at other times say's it can't hear the commands no matter what volume I use when speaking.

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.)

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.

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:

Doesn't work on my Casio Commando, either.

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.
