I'm sorry to report that this version is one of the worst yet. Now this is my own personal experience, others may or may not go through the same:

Just general browsing and navigation within the app is very laggy.
-E.g. Clicking on scoreboard or account info and it takes a few seconds

Searching for places sometimes results in a black screen.

& now just clicking on my user profile reveals some other user: https://imgur.com/BXCv2qb

I have restarted my phone and cleared the cache. I think I'll revert back to 4.32.


Interesting. I have not experienced any of the issues you describe. Have you uninstalled and reinstalled the app?

Thanks for the reply. As I mentioned in my post, I use the mic button in the search bar normally, which uses Googles voice pickup feature (available on all apps), and it works fine.

Since the new "OK, Waze" thing doesn't search properly, I'd just like to turn it off (which I can), but not have it launch the annoying new red screen when I use the old voice search method. I don't need the 3 finger tap.
PLEASE!!

Thank the Lord we can now turn off vehicle on the shoulder alerts



PLEASE!!

ust updated the the new "OK Waze" voice command feature.

Please, please, can I go back?

So far, it's not working real well.

I want to search for something simple like:

"CVS Pharmacy, Harbor Blvd, Santa Ana" and it searches only for "Pharmacy", ignores the location, and gives me pharmacies near where I am, not where I want. Or, it will search the words I've said properly, but tells me there are no locations, because it's still actually searching in my current area, and I'm not in Santa Ana.

This worked fine with the previous system where I just pressed the mic icon in the search bar.

Now, if I turn off the Ok, Waze function, it will work fine, but still launches the annoying new screen.

What's going on with all this?
PLEASE!!

"shortest/quickest" setting has been removed from the app starting with this version.

I have not experienced any of those issues either. I would also give it a few days to see if those problems persist or if they are just temporary before I reverted to an older version.

It may take a day for that to become active in the app, so give it another day and see if it appears.

The blog post suggests there should be a new HOV option under "Settings > Navigation > Add Toll/HOV pass" but I'm not seeing it.
