Go complain to Apple. Siri is not a Waze product, nor is Siri's lack of ability anything Waze can fix.

I've heard you have to say the letters. And not even that works all the time.

"Open sounds like waze"

Thanks for posting this here. Your shorter version, "launch like waze" works perfect for me.

There's a thread somewhere around here that has info on some very strange pronunciation that they found to work. If I remember correctly, the trick is to pronounce it the same way Siri does...

I accordance with the Forum Rules please do no re-open threads that have been dormant for over 6 months.

There is a new thread for issues that the iOS 7 version of Siri is having with Waze at viewtopic.php?f=657&t=63961

I found that if you say "Woz" and not "Waze" it usually works. I opened a ticket with Apple but...

Finally found the fastest way to open Waze with Siri: Just say "Launch Gas".

"Gas" is part of the App Store name.

I had fun trying to invent ways to get Siri to open it. Finally I did it 3 ways consistently. You'll need to spell it and say the letters.

Open w-a-z-e
It also worked leaving the E off during the spelling.....Open w-a-z

I also got it to work by pronouncing it....Open Way Zay

Too late. Why don't you just fire up while walking to your car?

Siri does not open Waze!!!

Postby jrnavid » Mon Dec 03, 2012 10:09 pm

So Im driving down the road and decide to open my Waze app. I tell Siri "open Waze" and she says "There appears to be no app named why". This is so frustrating because I try to open Waze through Siri for another 20 mins to no avail. She just doesnt get how to pronounce Waze. I even tried saying "Waaazzz" and still she doesnt open it.
