Waze Officially Comes to Windows Phone

465 12


Waze, the popular community-based mapping, traffic & navigation app has officially come to Windows Phone 8. The handy app has been a popular download on iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 OS platforms.

The 38MB download is now available on the Windows Store. Availability will depend on region though.


With 50 million users and growing, Waze is a long-awaited addition to the Windows Phone family.

From the snapshots off the official Windows Store page, the WP8 version doesn’t look overly different from versions from other platforms, and the feature set looks similar as well.

Waze was of course, recently acquired by Google.

Download and start outsmarting traffic, saving time, gas and money! And honk if you see me on the road – @vernieman

I’ll post more findings once I’ve got it installed on the Lumia 520 and  Lumia 720. Strangely, it cannot be found in the local Windows Store.

*UPDATE (August 6, 2013): Download Waze for Windows Phone directly from Waze, (incorrectly linked to Windows Mobile version) or from the US Windows Store.

Thanks to @smashpop for the tip.
