Sometimes, you want to share the location with someone else straight from Waze. You’re driving and you don’t want to open another app. Here’s how to quickly do it:

  1. Open the Waze app.
  2. Tap the search bar at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Select the “Saved” label to view your saved places. Make sure to save the location before accessing this option.
  4. Find the place you want to share and tap the three dots (more options) next to it.
  5. Choose “Send location” from the menu.
  6. Decide how you want to share your location (e.g., via text, email, social media).
