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.

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

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.

You're only using the available commands, right?

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.

tstrempfer wrote: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:


That is exactly what I am experiencing. Once I get where I am going, and fire up Waze again, it works perfectly with test commands. Hours later, on my way home, I start Waze, drive a mile or so, try to send a command, and it won't work.. Looks like quite a few people on this thread are having the exact same problem. I am running stock Android 4.2.2

I wonder if Waze is even aware of this problem and working on it. It's a shame, because at this point I am not using the hazard alerts any more, too dangerous to type in stuff at 70 mph.

I fixed my Samsung S3 using stock 4.1.2 rom by changing to Google for TTS rather than Samsung TTS. Hope this helps.

I've been using Google TTS and not the Samsung TTS, and still have this issue. Not sure what is going on.
