Default How to use voice to open Waze

I love that you can open apps using the "OK Google" feature but the one I probably want to do this with most is Waze while I am driving. I just can't get the right wording to get it to open.

Showing how I pronounce it and what I get

Wayss - Way's
WayZee - Way Z
Wazeee - Waze z
Waaaass - whats

Any suggestions.

Try "open app waze." That works for me.

I can't find where I saw this, but I read of someone using a program that made shortcuts and such into actual custom apps. They gave that a unique name, and opening that "app" was ultimately just a redirect into opening Waze.

I know that's very little to go on, but this is XDA, someone else might be able to fill in the blanks
