Thank you. I have tried it the way it is listed on the help page: Report Hazzard, On Shoulder, Car. It either fails when I say "report hazzard" or when I say "car". Either way I have not been successful at reporting this with a voice command. I appreciate any help!

Correct, that's why you would want to look at the file Waze actually uses instead of some documented list. Unless for some reason it doesn't use that file for some reason.

In general consider most information which is older than 6 month to probably be outdated. Since 2012 the app has changed a lot.

Where are you located? Have you looked at the Waze help page on voice commands?

I have also tried saying report hazzard and going through the prompts. Every time i get to the point of saying "car" it fails. What am I doing wrong?


I saw this on one of the early posts and they are all in that file:

All current available commands can be found at \Waze\asr_cmd in Android platform.


But I've had little luck making the commands work.

Hi,

Loving Wave at the momement, makes my journey to and from work much easier and seems better than Google in traffic detection thanks to the collaboration aspect ;)

Voice commands work IF i am not connected via Bluetooth in car. But once the car connects to the phone the voice commands can no longer hear anything I say - even if i pick up the phone and place right next to my mouth. Looks as if the microphone is disabled/redirected?

But in the same situation "OK Google" and "google maps" respond just fine, so its obviously a Wave thing.

Anyone know why this is? Any permissions i am missing or something?

Cheers,
Omegadcuk

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and can't even get the voice command prompt. Waving does nothing.
