Customize Waze sounds on Bluetooth

Adjust your settings so that Waze audio directions don't interrupt your music.  

On Android
  1. ​Tap Search , then Settings 
  2. Tap Voice & sound.
  3. Turn on Play sound to phone speaker to pause your music when Waze gives audio directions and alerts. If turned off, Waze audio directions and alerts play over your music, in a slightly higher volume. 

During phone calls, directions and alerts are muted. 

On iOS
  1. ​Tap Search , then Settings 
  2. Tap Voice & sound.
  3. Tap Play sound via, then Device default to listen to music or receive phone calls while navigating with Waze

Other options:

Play on phone speaker - Your music will pause when Waze gives audio directions and alerts, which play from the phone's speaker. When you receive a call, choose to have the sound come from your iPhone speaker or Waze directions and alerts will be muted. 

If you're connected to a USB and you receive a phone call, you will have difficulty hearing any Waze navigation. If you're connected via USB without connection to a Bluetooth device, we recommend disabling the play to              phone speaker setting.

Play as Bluetooth phone call - Your music volume lowers automatically when Waze plays directions or alerts. When you receive a call, choose to have the sound come from your iPhone speaker or Waze directions and alerts will be muted. 

To pause spoken programs (like podcasts and audiobooks) during voice directions, choose Pause spoken audio.

To mute Waze when you make or receive a phone call, turn on Mute during calls.
