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.

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

Ah, thanks for this thread! I struggled with Siri and Waze for the past year finally landing on "open w-a-z-e" but since the iOS 7 update I've been having limited luck with that even. I finally decided to Google it and landed here. I tried a couple of the suggestions mentioned above which didn't seem to work, but somehow I finally got Siri to pronounce the name back to me and it came out like "woz" or "was". So now when I say "open woz" it has worked for me every time! Lifesaver when trying to do everything by voice while driving!

Thank you for this tip!
Siri never seems to recognize my voice, but using your "open sounds like waze" method works for me everytime. :)

you can try the following:

I use "speak to it" assistant on android (i think there is an Iphone version too)
and when I say
open wa
it opens waze
wa being pronounced as "wah"

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


Yes, there are way fewer syllables. :D
