Hey Siri not Working While Using Waze on iPhone: Quick Tip to Fix the Issue

If Hey Siri is not working while you are using Waze on your iPhone, try out this quick fix to get rid of the issue.

Of course, Google Maps and Apple Maps are ruling the roost. But Waze, a navigation app for iOS, has got all the features to give them a good run for their own money. Recently, the app has added a new feature called “OK Waze” which works pretty much like Siri in letting you carry out several things using commands. While it works well, the only downside of this feature is that Siri doesn’t work when you are using Waze on your iPhone.

It’s because “OK Waze” uses the microphone of the iPhone when you are using the navigation app; thereby preventing Siri from working. So, to fix this issue, you need to disable it to make Apple’s intelligent personal assistant function without any hindrance.
