This is garbage. There are many apps that provide access to contacts for searching.

Can someone from Waze please provide your users with a simple, clear explanation as to why this is not working now and when we can expect it to be fixed.

Just going silent on this is rather juvenile.

In the meantime, I'm using Google Maps. I navigate to friends and other contact frequently and Waze has become a pain in the rear.

You're owned by Google. Why searching contacts in Android is so difficult is very strange. Almost as strange as the complete lack of explanation on this issue from Waze.

I'm having the same issue. All my contacts are synced to google (in the contact list all of them appears "Connected via Google") and Waze only shows about 10 out of 150 contacts. I was trying to send an invite to someone and this is keeping me from sending it. I've tried removing "Contacts" permission from the app in order to rescan again but it always shows the same 10 contacts. Using Samsung Galaxy S7 and Waze version 4.22.1.0 (Android)

Phone Contact integration

Postby AndreasAdams » Sat Jan 07, 2017 9:59 pm

One thing that has always irritated me is that I can't choose an address from my phones contacts.

Why is that?

Samsung Galaxy S7. Android 6.0.1
The next thing worked for me:
Sync all you contacts to your Google-account
Go to Settings -> Accounts -> Google.
Make sure Contacts is enabled.
Tap More in the upper right corner and tap Sync now.

After I did this, Waze finally synced my contacts.

Hope it works for anyone else.

Unable to Add Friends

Postby awk1985 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 12:34 pm

I am a new user to Waze (have used it for roughly a week now) and installed it based on reviews from friends. Now that I have it, I have not been able to add any friends other then Facebook friends which is only two for me. I have at least 3-4 other friends that I know use Waze but my contact list in Waze does not list any contacts. I have taken a friends phone and my phone at the same time and compared them and I do not show up on their list either. I have followed all the steps in the FAQs and I still can't get it to work. A big reason why I started using Waze was to be able to see other friends.

I have the same issue. Can only import contacts from Facebook. I found it very frustrating. Strangely, one contact is imported with a phone number; however the contact does not have a phone number. I'm thinking it may be a old remnant on the sim chip and not the actual contact in use.

Same issue here. I have an Iphone 5S and waze updated, but it only shows 15 friends on my contact list (over 30). Cannot find the others. My privacy settings waze is on. Any solution ?

Guys, here just to tell you my workaround of this problem. Just edit your contacts with their area code plus telephone number. Close waze app if its open. Reopen waze search for friends, now all contacts is shown. Hope this works for you as well.
