Official Feedback Thread: Android v4.20

Postby htxu » Sat Mar 11, 2017 1:38 am

waze 4.20.0.1
Android 5.1.1 (Samsung phone)

Since the last update, waze is now giving notifications about local traffic, even when I'm not using the app and when I don't have any trips planned. If I'm not using waze and don't have trips planned, then I don't care about local traffic. I don't want to disable all notifications, because when I have a trip planned, they're useful.

Same here. "Keep Waze on top" does not work since I upgraded Android to 7.0 on my S7 Edge

When a WAZE driving route is shared using other modes (such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook Messenger & etc), the shared driving route is displayed in a web page & the recipient is able to see the real-time driving motion is moving on the driving route.

However, when a drive is shared via the WAZE GPS app itself, the recipient can see the displayed driving route but the real-time driving motion isn't moving on the driving route. This issue needs to be fixed.

Still not able to search for gas stations like before.
I have to type it in (in my own language, of course) to find the cheapest pumps when I'm on the road, causing me to be a potentially major traffic hazard.

Error: Your phone contacts are still loading

Postby speedy_sr » Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:02 am

Android 7, Waze 4.20.0.1, Contacts permission granted:

I want to add a friend from contact list but everytime I want to do that I see error popup saying:
"Uh-oh! Your phone contacts are still loading. Try again soon."

There's no progressbar to show me if something is really happening, no manual reload option, nothing. Plus there's not even fallback option to enter the phone number manually! Very bad UX!

Any ideas?
Thank you.

Actually, this problem happens since the inception of WAZE GPS app version 4 & the contacts in your phone book can't be fully loaded. Alternatively, you can add your friends via Facebook or Twitter.
