Sorry but as a simple community member I just don't have the answers. I've run out of ideas and suggestions at this point.

I have even gone to the point of upgrading my phone to a Samsung Galaxy On5 with Marshmellow. And, I'm still having trouble with voice commands. What can I do now other than look for another app or not report anything? Very frustrating.

I reinstalled the app, but it didn't help the situation at all. I still can't use a voice command to report a car stopped on the side of the road.

If you make sure to have setup and to know your username and password to login you will be fine.

I have talked with Samsung Support. They say it is a problem with the app and suggest that I try reinstalling. If I do that will I lose my favorites, points, etc?

This was available in Waze 3.x but was removed with Waze 4.x

There is a pinned thread about this:

I've seen references to reporting incidents in the opposing traffic lanes but have not found the commands in the wiki or in this forum. Am I mistaken? Is there a way to report issues for people traveling in the opposite direction?

Thanks. No music since I turn the volume off when reporting. Other reports such as heavy traffic and police seem to work much more consistently. I did get a hazzard report to work once this morning (first time ever) but 4 other times it didn't work. I have good cell signal when trying to report,too. Google voice searches seem to work fine.

Ok so it seems that it could work (no bugs to fix) but that there is a problem with the app understanding you. Have you got music on or anything while you're trying? Does your phone's integrated vocal assistant understand you well in the same conditions?

What I mean by failed:

1.App listens. I say "Report Hazzard". App says "Try Again".
2. App listens. I say "Report Hazzard" again. App says "Can't Hear You".
3. App listens. I say "Report Hazzard" again, usually a little louder. App says "Cancelled".
