Will waze ever come out of beta on WP?

There are rumors google is going to kill off Windows Phone 8 development effort.

When will the WP8 version be ready? Can't wait to install Waze on my Lumia phone and get rid of my old Galaxy. Keep up the good work.

Based on past information, I'd think Waze for WP could be out this week. At least this month...

I believe it is still considered to be under private beta. You can find it in the store via web search. The latest version was released on Sept 17 and has resulted in a nice long list of bugs being reported. (Some new, some repeats, some not bugs, some valid.)

Same answer as I posted two days before you asked the question. Just scroll up a little bit.

Testing continues. Latest beta release was as of my previous post about it, approx 3 weeks ago. Bug list continues to be worked by the devs.

(OT: Android beta released today.)

Nothing worth mentioning. Still in private beta and current release is the same as previously mentioned.

They aren't taking new testers.

That is what they tell us, and what they say over twitter as well. It looks like there are still quite a good number of bugs to fix and some features are not implemented yet. It seems to be taking longer than I would expect. :(

Unlikely from a developer POV. They have devs specific to each platform. But the internal testers are not necessarily platform-specific.
