Thank you for your no help AlanofTheBerg. I did search the forums for hours and did not find anything on the topic. I was not intending to highjack this thread. I simply asked a question about a Voice Command that I thought that this topic - Voice Command Reference - was appropriate. Sorry for disturbing you. You could have at least posted a link to one of the "dozens and dozens of times" my question was asked.

There may not have been discussion of specifically the voice commands to shut down the app being removed, but there is a lot of discussion about the general removal of any way within the iPhone app to shut it down. This is not a voice commands issue, but a more general one.

My apologies. I did speed-read your post and jumped to a response before fully understanding. :oops: The subject about iOS not shutting down aka complaints about the sleep and not quitting to the springboard is what has been overly-discussed, with users complaining that it is Google's fault. In fact, nothing to do with the shutdown or voice commands has anything to do with Google. Google has, and will continue to have, extremely little to do with anything Waze does until the end of the 3-year agreement.

It is possible that the shut down command has been removed/changed. I will do a little research.

I do not see these commands as valid in the current iOS 3.7.7 release:
  • Exit/turn off Waze
    • Shut down
    • Turn off
    • Stop waze
    • Switch off
    • Close app

Thanks for heads-up, @majorben. Again, I'm sorry for jumping on you prematurely.

Is there a command for "sleep"?

I would agree that most of those should be added back, except "close app", as it's misleading and inaccurate. The rest could be interpreted to mean "sleep".

There is nothing that I see which can be used to sleep/shut down the app.

No problem AlanofTheBerg. No offense taken. In a way, I'm glad that what I was experiencing was something that was taken away, and it wasn't something that was wrong with my phone. And yes, I do have an iPhone (4s). Thank you for posting the "bug" report. Hopefully, the powers that be will fix it.

I created a Bugzilla to sync the voice commands and manually entered reports so they match both ways. Many report options are not available manually and I noted RAIN was not available in the voice commands. For those with voting rights, please do so.

I updated the Wiki page on Voice Commands to reflect Alan's list in the OP. I believe the current app has a few other options for triggering voice commands that are not updated on the page I updated for the tables if someone wanted to update that part.

Voice commands have completely stopped responding for me. Haven't seen anyone else mention these symptoms yet.
I'm running Waze version 3.7.7 but this problem started at least 4 months ago with the previous version. Basically, once I bring up voice command mode (3 finger tap or wave), I get the "how can I help" request but it fails to respond in any way to any voice input. In the past, voice command mode would close after a few failed attempts. Now, it just sits there - for hours if I let it. It doesn't tell me that it doesn't understand, it just waits. I've tried with the iphone mic and 2 different BT sets.
I've got a Verizon iphone 4 running iOS 7.0.3. Have completely uninstalled and reinstalled.
Had no problem with the earlier version on the same phone. TIA

Edit: just realized this is probably not the best thread to post this question to. Sorry.
