That solution worked for me too, after updating to a new iPhone, and apps are all asking for new permissions to access resources, but Waze didn't, for address searches. This is pretty nuts you guys. That is a very obscure way, to get around to allowing access to Contacts. You need an option in settings for this.

Hello,

my phone is a LG L70 with android 4.4.2 and i also can´t access my contacts.

Can it be from the version of android?

Any solution for this problem ? I have tried all the things that everyone say in this topic, but didn't work..... :(

Same problem here.

Contacts always used to appear in search results (ever since I've had the app) but have now just stopped doing so.

I tried the suggested fix mentioned earlier re-registering my phone but it made no difference.

There's still no option on Waze to enable contacts.

Has anyone found a solution to this yet?

Finally! Found the answer:

    Click on the Contacts button (the one that looks like a person's head) at the bottom right
    Click on the plus (+) button on the top right
    Select "Find friends from contacts"
    Allow Waze to access your contacts
    Cancel out of the dialog (no need to add any contacts)

Found elsewhere on the forums under "Android v4.0" (although it's not only for Android) :-)

I'm having trouble confirming the link to it though. :-(

Still - the solution shown above seems to work.

I resolved this by going to 'My Waze' (click on your profile) then My Friends --> click the (+) sign --> 'Find friends from contacts'

That prompted me to allow access to my contacts, and now they are synced again.

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?
