I could stand to not be able to connect facebook, add places, add photos, etc ... but what can I do without voice instruction?

come on Waze, we need some update... the last one was on the Flintstones era...

Has nothing to do with Waze. It's Google. Go BING it.

Windows version is dog muck.

THANKS GOOGLE.

I might just get a cheap android basher as I'm doing a lot of miles and it's saved me hours in the past.


Tom's and Kate's voices were permanently retired from the app globally. Nothing to do with phone OS or Waze version. Got the info from Waze news feed.



Ha...what a joke. Really? has nothing to do with phone OS. So, why doesn't MINE WORK on my WP8.1 Lumia 1520? SCROOGLED is WHY.

Does anyone who works for waze and has any influence read this forum? Apart from venting our frustrations, are we wasting our time posting? Would we be better off using other routes, perhaps social media?

For those who can't ACCEPT terms and conditions on a LUMIA 640, just hide the Go Back / Start Button /Search icons at bottom of the screen. It's hiding the accept button.

I also borrowed my son's old puny Android handset and installed Waze on it this week.

Works like a charm of course.

Default voice?

English (UK) (Kate).

I guess she didn't get that email.

Why did reinstalling the app last week still offer these as choices? I can't get ANY of the UK voices to work. Whole drive has silent direction.

OK so while your post is on screen, I've (on wifi) uninstalled Waze.
Reinstalled Waze.
Started it.
Waited.
Downloading Languages (completed)
Installing Languages (completed)

Checked default Language: English (UK)
Checked default Voice : English (UK) (Kate)

As I hear she's recently retired, I pressed the name to select another voice. Choices are:

English (UK) (Kate)
English (UK) (Thomas)
English (US) (Jane)

I heard Thomas took the redundancy package too, it doesn't leave the UK much choice.
Not wanting a US voice, I clicked Language: English (UK) and was offered the international list.

Picked English (UK).

Popup box says

"Language: English (UK)
Voice: English (UK) (Simon)"
OK

Let's see if Simon made it to Settings, All, General :

Settings, All, General :
Language: English (UK)
Navigation Guidance: English (UK) (Kate)

So, no Simon.

Choices are still:

English (UK) (Kate)
English (UK) (Thomas)
English (US) (Jane)

Restarted app and phone, still the same.

App still has Kate there. Cannot get rid of her. I guess this is why it's silent?
