I’ve been using Waze for some time now and its one, if not the best sat nave app out there. Unfortunately, now the Windows Mobile 10 Waze application is no longer being updated leave us with a real chicken and egg scenario. The Waze team is saying that they won’t update the application until they see an increase in numbers of users but how is this ever going to happen unless the app is updated :o(

I’m posting this to show my support for continued development for the Windows Mobile 10 platform.

Waze team, is there any chance for an occasional update for Windows Mobile platform if its currently not cost effective to keep right up-to-date with the Android or Apple versions?

Kind regards

I just switched from Android to Windows 10 Mobile. I got an Alcatel Idol 4S. I recently read online that Waze stopped updating the app for Windows Phone. Luckily the app is still available for download at the Microsoft Store. I can verify that the app's basic functionality works, but there are a lot of features that are not available or not working when compared to the Android version:

- While the option to select different voices for the navigation is there, voice navigation itself is not working. I did not get any voice prompts during my drives. Downloading any special voices like the Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May (the Grand Tour) package will not download and report an error after a few minutes while remaining at 0% download.

-Can't see other Wazers on the map.

-Can't see the majority gas stations or other stores on the map when compared to my carpool friend's Waze app on Android.

-Maps and traffic reportings, and route redirections DO appear accurate when compared to my carpool friend's Waze app on Android.

With Microsoft's policy of removing apps from it's store with no age rating, I can see the Waze app being removed very soon.

I would love to be able to read my messages too. Even on the desktop would suffice. But overall Waze has made a remarkable difference to my commute, so message reading isn't a big deal.

As you can tell from the topic title, Windows Phone is currently not supported by Waze. Do not expect any updates anytime soon.

However, the last available version of Waze for WP (3.7.something) works o.k. on WP10.

Hope we can finally convince the developers to work on this.

Hi YoshackFyre,

most of your issues were already discussed in this thread. This WP waze version 3.7.4.5 exists for 3 years, without any evolution and nothing new in what you are asking.
please read this thread first and indeed make short posts with clear questions !
