@YoshackFyre:

Mostly any and all WP users who got tips and tricks from other WP users have gotten it from here since there aren't many WP users who read any other threads on the forum. By wanting to create your own thread you are actually having less chances of it being noticed by people who may have had the same issue as you and also use WP.

Another thing to consider in the length of your posts, your first one has 1,226 words and 6,470 characters. This is a community forum made of volunteers who will read/help/reply on their free time. Posting shorter summaries of your issue(s) would make it easier for people to want to read your message, nobody is getting paid to.

I don't use WP and never have, but I hope that someone from this thread can help you out.

I've changed the title of this thread from "Official feedback thread" to it's current one. If the situation evolves in the future we will un-sticky it and open a new thread for feedback.

As it was publicly announced now, Waze dropped support for WP

Fans of the Windows 10 Waze app are in for some disappointment as it appears the app’s developers have no plans to update it in the immediate future.

On MSFT reader, Mateus, reached out to the Waze team via their official Twitter account and was told that the small number of users on the Windows phone platform really didn’t justify the costs of app development at this point in time.

While this is bad news for loyal users, it is worth noting that the developers haven’t shut the door on updating in the future and that when or if the Windows phone version of the Waze app gains more users, they will support it once more.

You can still use this thread to help eachother with problems and fixes you find for using Waze on WP.

Unfortunately, Windows Phone is no longer supported by Waze, whom apparently are not interested to run Waze on that platform. This is something that Google as being doing for years for their applications: removing or not developing for Windows Phone.

Sorry, but this is the truth behind the shadows.

Anyway, for the past couple of weeks, the ads in Waze have been broken.

That is all.

Wait, what? There are ads on the WP version of Waze? Not going to complain, I've never seen any on my Lumia 930 & 950 :mrgreen:

Open your SETTINGS
Swipe over to ALL (settings)
Click on SOUND
The first option is PROMPTS VOLUME
Lowering this should bring the volume of the prompts down

Where was this announced? I still see it in the Microsoft Store.

My apologies, I had a typo. My question is:

How do I turn the "police warning" prompt volume down? Currently it is very high and it's not pleasant when I'm listening to loud music on from my phone.

Windows OS isn't supported anymore. Also my English seems to be too bad to understand your question completely. Do you mean that there is no audio warning?

The Waze app is usable.
I have these issues that I have noticed

*However directions only prompts won't download.
*The app won't switch to landscape mode

Otherwise the basic app works.

Will there be a new version coming?



It's *barely* usable for me. I prefer to work off voice prompts when dodging through traffic. Having to look away from the road to check on Waze isn't terribly smart in some of the places I'm driving.
