Why is Waze suddenly sharing my drive in Spanish ?
0
I’ve had Waze for several years and have shared my drive with my wife several times, with no (well, very little!) trouble. Lately, when I share my drive with her , she receives the notification in Spanish. What’s going on?

Same thing here. I've sent it to 2 different people to make sure the problem was from my phone and not theirs and confirmed it was me.

All of our phones are set to English.

Both of them noted that it wasn't saying "Sent from 'insert my name'" but from another (unknown) phone number.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to post your issue.
 
Change the language of you and your wife's Google Assistant’s voice
  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google app .
  2. At the bottom right, tap More   Settings  Voice  Language.
  3. Choose a language.
Important: If your Google Assistant reads text messages in the wrong language, remove English as a secondary language. Then change your Google Assistant’s voice language to match your Google Assistant’s language.
 
Does the following Google (G) app setting match your Assistant  primary language?
 
Open Google (G) app > Settings > Language & Region > confirm setting is correct
 
Change your language or use multiple languages

Hi all,

I am trying to help here.
We were able to reproduce it and it looks like it is showing in Portuguese-PT.
Can you please confirm that what you see when you share your drive is what is in the picture? Can you add a screenshot to help us to investigate?

Thanks!
