    Hi

    To me:
    "what are we doing now"? means what are we doing at the present and
    What do we do now?" means "what are we going to do next"

    Regards

    Changing now to next makes the original question easier to answer.
    What do we do next?
    We are following a set of instructions, or a planned programme of activity.
    I want to know what I am meant to do next.

    What are we doing next?
    Could be the same as the first question, but could also be a general invitation to discuss what we might like to do.
