- I recently updated my Waze app and noticed a new Music note icon. Upon further investigation I came across this.
Interesting, but it wont help me any. Looks like it would just get in the way. I only use Waze for the notifications.
Good thing you can turn the new "feature" off.


Drivers can now listen to their favorite tunes without having to leave the Waze navigation app.
This week, Waze added an audio player to its crowdsourced navigation app that aims to deliver music, podcasts and other content from seven major platforms, including Pandora, Deezer, iHeartRadio, NPR, Scribd, Stitcher and TuneIn. These partners have integrated their audio experience into Waze by using a new suite of developer tools, called the Waze Audio Kit.
A beta version of its Android and iOS apps that include the embedded audio player, called Waze Audio Player, was released this week to members of Waze’s beta community. Waze Audio Player will begin rolling out to all Waze users in the coming weeks, the company said.
The decision to bring audio into the popular navigation app was inspired by the positive feedback the company received after its first audio integration with Spotify that launched in March 2017, Waze said.
Here’s how it will work. Once users open Waze, the app will detect any of the supported music apps installed on their smartphones. Users can tap the music note icon to select their audio app within Waze. To switch from one audio app to another — say from NPR to iHeartRadio — users tap the music note icon again and then hit “change app.”
Users will be able to control whichever content they’re listening to using forward, backward and pause icons. They’ll also be able to save content to a library.

Not something I'd use either as I use Media Monkey to just play music off my phone through AA. Glad you can disable it.

I have Pandora on my phone but it's not listed in Waze

Waze tells me it has more apps coming. I don't have Spotify or Scribd on my phone but Waze has them listed.

I thought Waze gave announcements over whatever other app you had running. Isn't that true? If so, I don't see why they are adding this other stuff. I just started using Waze, that is why I am asking.

Just updated mine, but not showing Pandora either. Guess it will be out soon after it goes through the beta group. In my opinion its a nice feature as I'm always opening both apps when driving. Thanks for the info!

I have IOS and it’s not showing Pandora as available in the Waze menu yet either. I primarily use waze in CarPlay and I don’t know if I even see any music option in the car.
