If you want to install and use the Waze Navigation & Live Traffic app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Waze Navigation & Live Traffic in the search bar and press Search. Click on Waze Navigation & Live Traffic application icon. A window of Waze Navigation & Live Traffic on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Not the same Waze it Once was

    Even a month or so ago, I would have rated this app 5 stars, but something has happened to what was my best driving app companion. The issues begin with incorrect mileage estimates when you type in a place your are going that, as soon as you click on the place to get directions, change and sometimes in drastic ways and always for the worse. Examples - a place that it said was 136 miles away changed when getting directions to over 200 miles away...a place that it said was 9 miles away, when you click on it to press go turns into 14 miles away. It also is suggesting routes with lots of turns that are leading me in circles and when I choose to ignore their suggestion because I can see ahead there does not seem to be traffic, I go the normal straight way I always do and get there 5 minutes sooner than the estimated time from Waze’s indirect way. The app has become so broken it is upsetting because it used to be amazing! It also isn’t remembering routes and crashing, which is what prompted me to finally write this review because that ended up costing me about an extra hour of time yesterday since I was trying to avoid the turnpike (and it’s tolls) and unbeknownst to me, it re-routed me to take it! It’s also caused my daughter to end up on a toll road with no warning! Waze and I are going to have to part ways if they don’t fix the newly introduced issues soon - it’s just become completely unreliable:

    Update: Waze updates have been good and the reporting process is improved and there are less steps to get to the actual reporting - yay! When you fix the default address estimation from interstate (literally I get suggestions for MI addresses, and I live in Alexandria VA!). Previous: I've recommended this app to dozens of friends and helped many download it to their smartphones and set it up for them. I can't say however that I'm very happy about the latest version of Waze. The GUI is not what it should be, the # of improvements is about equivalent to the # of detriments. It's hard to cancel an instruction once entered, the screen going from side to side is not user friendly. And reporting hazards is STILL a 2-3 step process!!!! There should be the option for active wazers to have a "visible police" button, "car on shoulder" button "construction" button and/or various traffic buttons of our choosing on the map page that we can report as we go. Also, PLEASE STOP SEARCHING THE ENTIRE MAP OF THE USA WHEN I'M OBVIOUSLY SEARCHING FOR AN ADDRESS IN MY LOCAL VICINITY. That was an obvious upgrade improvement you guys should have included. I would give you 5 stars or 10 or 20 because I love your app - but these improvements really need to happen ASAP. Keep up he awesomeness Waze!! Plus your Customer svc and responsiveness is great too!
  • Most useful but some issues

    It is the most useful of the navigation apps because it uses the most sources for information and does a great job helping me navigate. Directions are given in a way to help locate the turn or offramp. Other apps often change suddenly into step-by-step directions or some form that I do not want to see. Waze stays consistent in the format of the split. Waze has a number of notifications about things in the road. These are good but also have weaknesses. It is hard to report that something was not accurate. At the point it is supposed to be there the option to indicate it was incorrect goes away. This option should remain for 2 to 400 feet after the symbol location. Most hazard reports are inaccurate. Most police reports are incorrect. This is frustrating because it such a good idea but the tool doesn’t really allow for good reporting. Stopped vehicle reports do not indicate in lane or side of road so they are usually pointless viewings of vehicles stopped somewhere having no affect on traffic. There is a great feature to go later on the time this feature cannot be used for some reason I will choose directions to the airport. Half the time I can choose go later and half the time for the same trip I cannot. I know the data is there. But for some reason the feature just vanishes. Make it easier to report.

    This app has saved me so many times. I absolutely love it. I use it constantly, mainly because it alerts me to traffic and cops, but also because it has shown me shorter ways to places I go to all the time (and thought I knew the best route there). I only have two complaints. The map change suggestion feature is totally useless. There’s a road near me that’s a private lane and ends at one curve of an s-curve. Waze always tells me to use this road for 100 feet, then get back on the main road. No, the private lane ENDS at the main road! I’ve tried changing this a dozen times, and it never gets changed (once it was actually, but a week later it was back). I’ve learned to ignore it, but I feel sorry for tourists because they get confused (I can tell they’re using Waze when I’m behind them because they’ll slow down and sometimes stop, which is really annoying). My other complaint is that I can’t tell it to remember certain routes. From my house, there are two ways to the county road. They’re both the same distance and about the same driving time. The difference is that the one Waze always tells me to use is single lane partway, very narrow the rest of the way, and has a lot of hidden entrances and blind hills and curves. I’d much rather take the safer way. If Waze finds a way to fix these two things, I’d give it 5 stars

  • Problems but good app

    By Bobb231
    If your trip is over 100 miles Waze will NOT work. it’s says “ route couldn’t be found “. This is very sad that a gps app can’t do if fundamental job. And with that being said this has been a issue for a YEAR NOW!!!
  • Siri is still broken.

    Works great, but trying to send a message via Siri STILL, after months, just reports, “Sorry, there was a problem with the app.”
  • Good app

    The response time needs updating. When you make a turn, Waze does not catch up fast enough and can cause you to miss the next turn. Also please add street names to the Russian voice Valeriy (Валерий).

    Waze was my favorite navigation app. I used to be able to use Spotify and waze at the same time. Now when listening to Spotify the waze app blanks out to a full grey screen.
  • My Waze stopped talking.

    Great app! In big cities where everyone uses it, the speedometer with speed limit everywhere you go, it is more effective than a radar / lidar detecto, because by the time you've detected them, they've probably already detected you.

  • The Best Nav App, Hands Down

    I commute about 25 miles to work which can take anywhere from 40 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes on bad days. Waze consistently gets me to work about 5-25 minutes faster, again, depending on how bad the day is. Most of drive is freeway, yet Waze find a way to go around traffics using city streets without any input on my end. This is amazing because I can keep my hand on the steering whee and attention on the road. It’s community of “Wazers” are dedicated to providing everyone with as much information as possible so their drive can be as quick as possible. I’ve been using Waze for about 4 years now and 6 months since I’ve had this long commute. I’ve never had any issues and continue to go back to it every single time I need navigation and now 5 mornings and nights a week on my to and from work. Thank you Waze!!!

    I don’t normally write reviews on apps but for this one I will. Wazs has saved my Commute to San Francisco from Sacramento more times then I can count. This morning there was a major crash and Wazs got me around the crash and back on the road with out losing any time. Thank you for development team for this app and looking forward to seeing what you all do next!
