It should ask your for this access when you go into the "Share drive" or "Friends" menus in the app and try to add friends or share drives with people. I'm not sure which one of the two exactly but this is when the access request pop-up showed up when I was showing a friend the Waze app for the first time a few weeks back.

Problem: Waze don't find contacts

Postby Fred_de_Ville » Thu Jul 28, 2016 1:38 pm

Hi everybody,
I recently installed Waze on my mobile (Samsung S7 Edge) with Android Marshmallow and Waze only finds me 8 contacts who use this App. But I know for sure many more of my contacts are using this App.
Everything has been done correctly, all data access authorizations have been granted, but Waze keeps refusing me an access to my contacts (mobile AND Facebook). And of course, the contacts I'm looking for are the ones I'm more in touch with. :-(
Does somebody have a solution? That would be much appreciated.
Thank you.
Fred

I have some more questions...

- How is it possible some of my contacts are able to send me their location but I can't add them in my Waze contacts? (Really a pity there is no possibility through those contact location to add those persons in my Waze contacts)

- Why am I not able to open some invitations to be the contact of some people?

I can agree it's a bit backwards but I believe the reason was not to scare off people by asking for too many permissions from the very start with many and all access request pop-ups. This is to adapt to each person's usage of the app functions, as they're trying to use them in a progressive manner, asking for permissions along the way for a "less scary" and "less annoying" experience on first startup.

In your case if you had not read about contact access permissions on the forum you might have just naturally tried to access one of the menus which triggers this access request and it would then have been a smoother experience.
For someone who would never want to use those, then the app simply doesn't ask for this access, which avoids making some people abandon even trying the app from the start if they're reluctant to give access to their phone's data and wouldn't understand why it asks for it.

Waze doesn't take contacts from exchange and similar accounts. If you want to see your contact, copy (move) contact into your phone. It's workarround only...
