Please fix this it is horrible!

This is mentioned in this version's release notes (1st post of this thread)
- Friends and Inbox have a new home: Now, see whether you have new inbox messages and Waze friends online in your Waze menu navigation list. If you do, tap to your My Waze screen to read them and see who’s there.
This change was done by staff to make room for another feature that will use the right side, so it is not a bug and won't be fixed.

You can still easily share a ride with your husband, just begin navigation to your destination and when you see the ETA window open use the sharing button in the middle:

Just acknowledge this is terrible. Why have that arrow that does nothing?

It is a significant loss.

After you send your ETA using the middle option in the ETA pop up window you get a confirmation pop-up saying that your ETA was sent and your navigation line will switch to a green line on the map. Those two things tell you that he got it.

I can aknowledge it is not as great for people who used the right side friends menu, if you want, but I'm just a community member, so in the end I can't speak on behalf of Waze.
