Thanks! We’ll keep you posted and let you know as soon as we have any updates on this.
Hey there folks,
Thanks for all your reports and patience so far!
This should be now fixed in the latest version of the Android app.
If that doesn't do the trick for you, please make sure that Navigation is toggled off from the app's settings.
If you're still having troubles, don't hesitate to let us know in the Help Boards. We'll be happy to lend a hand.
Have a lovely day 🙂
Seriously disconcerting... I'm about ready to cancel.
Issue persists after a reinstall and a phone replacement (completely fresh install)
Pixel 2XL, Android 9
Waze is not and was never installed
Waze navigation deactivated in Spotify
Samsung Galaxy S7
Spotify Version 126.96.36.1991
Waze not on device
Waze navigation activated? No
This is not solved at all. Your instructions don't work. Please fix.
Still see this
Nokia 9 + Android 9
Waze is installed although has never been run on this phone
It is connected although I'll try disconnecting it as I stopped using waze.
Is it because I have a Fitbit connected through Bluetooth?
Hey all! I think I may have found a solution. I posted a while back with my android specs if it matters.. (pixel 2)
(Waze never installed)
Step one: turn that stupid navigating setting on.
Step two: connect to car Bluetooth.
Step three: wait out the timed, in app pop up notification that says something like "want help getting around" (don't click the x).
Step four: once the pop up goes away, turn the setting off.
This seemed to work for me. It's like it had to get that timed notification to complete it's cycle before I could turn it off and not be bothered by it anymore. Hope it works for you.
"Connecting to Waze"
Device: OnePlus 7Operating System: Oxygen OS 9.5.8.GM57AAAndroid version: 9Spotify version: 188.8.131.524Waze installed: NoNavigation activated: Yes
Samsung S10+, OS pie updated Sept 3rd 2019
Spotify version 184.108.40.2064
I do not have (and never have had) Waze installed
no in the "connect to app" "navigation" screen it asks if I would like waze connected but it is not.
I just constantly have a notification that I cannot dismiss saying spotify is trying to connect to waze.
