Hmmm. That's really odd. I don't use Waze in anything other than English, so... It could be that the other prompts are based on your geographic location. Waze is known to have a preferred language per country.

You may want to visit the Brazil forums area (under Country/Language forums) and ask this question of your local users. When you find out the answer, could you post it back here?

Hi there

I think I have a similar problem here in Brazil.

I use a European Samsung with Android 4.1 in German, bought in Vienna/Austria. I am using waze mostly in Brazil.

Though I set all language settings I can find in the app to English (menues, TTS), voice commands will still ask me in Portuguese (the equivalent of "How can I help you?" etc.) and expects answers in Portuguese as well. TTS etc are all in English, just as I had put it.

As a matter of curiosity, and as I do not like to look like an idiot in front of my app, I wonder if anyone can inform me about the possible reason for this strange behaviour. I do use waze outside of Brazil quite a lot as well, but have to acknowledge that I have either not noticed this problem or its possible automatic solution until now.

Thanks
Ingo

Take a screenshot and post it. Also, your country controls whether voice commands work, not language selected in Waze.
