My friend had Waze on a windows phone and I must say I couldn't work it. It was very awful not sure if it was Waze or windows phone's fault. But on Android and iOS it is awesome.. Aft seeing Waze on a windows phone I felt for you guys a lot. I can only hope it gets better for you. Or you change your phone!

Regarding the groups, I noticed that if I opened the link from the World Cup message the groups were available, so it seems that this is feature is present in the app, they just forgot to include it in the menu section.

Windows Phone users exist

Postby BillPStudios » Tue Jan 19, 2016 7:28 pm

I thought based on the help instructions voice wasn't supported yet for Windows Phone.
I searched before posting I saw that Windows Phone was not expected to supported or updated.

So let me go on record as requesting the addition of voice navigation for Windows Phone.
You've done all the hard work already. If you don't have enough time I'd be happy to help.
You have a game changer app and as more folks use Windows 10 on their desk or laptop,
they will appreciate a phone that is an extension of their PC.

Windows Phone OS (WP) - Currently not supported

[July 11th 2016 update] As it was publicly announced now, Waze dropped support for WP wrote:Waze app won’t be updated until number of Windows phone users increases

Fans of the Windows 10 Waze app are in for some disappointment as it appears the app’s developers have no plans to update it in the immediate future.

On MSFT reader, Mateus, reached out to the Waze team via their official Twitter account and was told that the small number of users on the Windows phone platform really didn’t justify the costs of app development at this point in time.

While this is bad news for loyal users, it is worth noting that the developers haven’t shut the door on updating in the future and that when or if the Windows phone version of the Waze app gains more users, they will support it once more.

Windows Phone app has stopped showing advertisements

Postby UnnDunn » Wed Jan 18, 2017 2:09 pm

Yeah, yeah, I know. Windows Phone. Maybe the three of us still using it might want to chime in on this, just for the record.

Anyway, for the past couple of weeks, the ads in Waze have been broken.

That is all.

Postby Madchadmi » Mon Dec 14, 2015 1:36 pm

I am using Waze.
The Waze app is usable.
I have these issues that I have noticed

*However directions only prompts won't download.
*The app won't switch to landscape mode

Otherwise the basic app works.

Will there be a new version coming?
