What makes Waze unique is that in this update, the app includes voice commands like “take me home” that you can activate by waving your hand in front of the iPhone’s screen.
The app cleverly uses the iPhone’s proximity sensor to detect your waving hand and activate voice commands.

How does it work?
After typing in your destination address, just drive with the app open on your phone to passively contribute traffic and other road data. You can also take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a ‘heads-up’ about what’s to come.
