Waze Releases New Version - Welcome to Waze 4.0!

We've got some exciting news today. Just in time for fall, we've released a new version for the App Store with Android on the way. After installing Waze, you'll immediately notice a newer, cleaner design that makes for easier navigation, reporting, and sharing - you might call it a brand new Waze experience.

Less Taps Needed

We redesigned this version to better serve your driving needs and experience. Now, it takes less taps to access many of Waze's key features. Tapping the left button pulls up the navigation menu and all of your frequent and favorite destinations. Meanwhile, tapping the right button gives you quick access to your contacts for a number of actions including: Sending directions, your location, and ETA to those awaiting your arrival.
You can view alternate routes, add a stop or let someone know you're on the way from the center button where your ETA time is displayed.

Newly Designed Reporting Menu

The report menu is now located right on the map with a big orange button. The menu is faster with bolder, color-coded categories. Also, there's a quick report action that you can activate by tapping and holding down the report menu.

Reminders to Leave for Events on Time 

Now you can get reminders to leave on time for Calendar events based on traffic. Just sync your Calendar and Waze will be on the lookout for traffic, letting you know when you should hit the road. Remember to add a street address to your event location and you're set.

Minimized Battery Usage

This is a big one! Version 4.0 significantly reduces battery consumption so you can keep Waze fired up without losing your charge.
That’s it. You’re now ready for a new Waze experience. Let us know what you think!
