Hi Sir,

What do you mean by it "take some time to appear"? I've restarted my phone & app countless times but never showed up on my sound menu.. The soccer announcers did come up but none of those who read street names..

Please help.. Thanks!

Thanks also to bgaltman for sharing in detail the procedure for android kitkat.

How about for an android 4.2.2 Jellybean device, does any one knows how?

Please! Thanks in advance.


Unfortunately, the work-around does not work for the latest version of Waze (version 3.8.0.0).

We are very happy to announce that we enabled two important features for the drivers in the Philippines - Gas stations and TTS (text to speech) !!!

The Gas stations feature will allow drivers to update gas prices for stations nearby, providing the community of drivers the most accurate prices and let them filter stations by price from the settings menu.
To update the price at a station open the reports menu and select the Gas Prices icon.

The TTS is an audio feature that uses the street names in voice navigation.
Please see our manual for enabling the feature and play with the settings:

We would be happy to hear your feedback!

Enjoy :)


Thanks Mapsir and the Waze Team for the good news.

It's good to know that we, Pinoy Wazer are no longer left behind for this new technological advancement, enjoyed mostly by the first world country.

Cheers!!

But good thing Voice Commands can still be enabled when you search ##@asr in Navigate menu. But I missed Tom and Samantha.

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to share the proper workaround for Android (thanks for the help Kazmuth!)
This was tested on a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Android Kitkat. This probably works on other versions of Android as well.

Enabling TTS for Android (Kitkat) users:

The shortcut (works for some users):
1. Close Waze (make sure it is not running in the background)
2. Go to Settings > More > Location > Mode > select High Accuracy
3. Restart Waze
4. In Waze, go to Settings > Sound > select 'Samantha (including street names)'

NOTE: If High Accuracy is already selected, you will have to try the full method as described below.


The full method:
1. Turn off GPS
2. Go to Settings > More > Location > Mode > select GPS Only
3. Uninstall Waze
4. Re-install Waze and open it (make sure to install the production version, not a beta version)
5. when asked for location choose UNITED STATES
6. DON'T LOGIN yet, instead use "New users - start driving"
7. Click Settings > Sound > You will see you cannot select your voice option
8. Exit Waze (make sure it is not running in the background)
9. Switch on GPS
10. Go to Settings > More > Location > Mode > High Accuracy
11. Open Waze
12. Go to Settings > Account & Login > Login with your username or your Facebook account
13. After login is complete, click Settings > Sound> 'Samantha (including street names)' appears, check it (usually selected by default)


If after installing, you lost your favorites, you can restore them by doing the following:
1. Open Waze
2. Slide to Navigate
3. In the Search bar, enter the command: ##@restorefav
4. When done, your favorites will have been restored from a copy on the Waze servers
5. Before doing anything else, make sure to restart Waze so that also your Home and Work locations are restored.
