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.

Been having the same problem for a long time - Galaxy S6. Hoping it would have been fixed by now. Trying to share a location via any means, and can not access contacts. I do have a short list of contacts that are other wazers that appears, but it will not search/access Contacts. Nor can I select a Contact and drive to it.

When I first started using Waze, it was adding a second contact in my address book, but only duplicating the name. I deleted those. Who wants to see a second contact with a Wazeicon that has no useful information?

Waze was a great standalone app till Google bought them and integrated it with Google Maps. Wazers are providing the info for G Maps users who do not contribute to reports.

I agree 100%!

My husband's contacts come up on his Waze app... but mine don't. I always have to copy an address from contacts and paste it into Waze. What can I do to have Waze access my contacts?

Check in your phone's privacy settings to see if you granted access to your contacts for Waze.
If that option doesn't appear there, go back in the Waze app and try to add friends, share drives or locations with people by going into the "Friends" menu, "Share drive" (available once you start navigating to a location) or clicking the share icon next to a saved location in your app.
At least one of these should trigger a pop-up asking you for access to your contacts list, after that you should be able to grant Waze access to your phone's contact list and the option will appear in the privacy settings for the app.

As far as I know once that access becomes visible and allowed for the app it should work as it does for your husband. But it can remain hidden before you try to perform one of the actions I mentioned above.
