Although I am still new to Waze, I have been able to resolve a few of my issues with Voice Commands and thought I would post that information here in case it helps someone else. I use a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime phone, Android 5.1.1 and Waze Version 4.5.0.1

I started with no access to Voice Commands at all. Went into Waze > Settings > Voice Commands and Enabled and set to Activate with 3 fingers. Unfortunately, my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime does not recognize 3 fingers as a "gesture". When that didn't work, I changed the selection to 3 fingers or wave.

With that I was able to get the Voice Command screen with the microphone. But, it would always show as "Waiting". It seemed to not hear me. I got out of Waze and went into my phone settings. Under System I chose Language and input > Voice input. Apparently my phone did not default to any type of voice input. I first chose Enhanced Google Service, but for some reason (which I don't understand yet) that didn't work. Then I chose Basic Google Recognition and exited settings.

I went back into Waze with that setting, and now Voice Commands work. It doesn't always recognize what I am saying, but I have able to do several reports by voice. If I figure that out, I'll let you know.

Hopefully, this is helpful to someone. :D

I am new to Waze and can't get voice commands to work on my Samsung Galaxy Prime. Can anyone help? I have followed all of the instructions I have found without success.

Voice & languages files came into one compressed folder when you downloadload the app. If you find any issue or missing comands.
For ANDROID: setting, applications, waze, clear data
OR you can re-install it but make sure there's nothing related to old one . Or things messd up

I have never been able to get these to work. Is there a keyword you have to say to get waze to listen to you when an alert has appeared? Waving does not work until the alert has been dismissed manually, and then the voice commands do not refer to the previous alert.

I have to say I've never tried to use those myself so I don't even know if they work for me, I should give it a try someday ;)

I am not aware of any keyword, there are different activation methods however, maybe something from this link can help you:

I just saw that you can report things in the opposite lane - is that also a voice command?

Why reporting language depends on country where you are driving? I have Russian Android interface, as also Waze, but Waze will request German Commands in Germany... Thanks God I can speak German, but it will not happen with all languages. Could it hold on what is set in Waze? Or at least as Phone language???
