Google Maps App Gets Real Time Incident Reports From Waze
Google has announced that it has teamed up with Waze to bring real time incident reports to Google Maps for iOS and Android.
This means when Wazers report accidents, construction, road closures and more on Waze, the updates will also appear on the Google Maps app for Android and iOS in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Switzerland, UK and the US.
Waze users will also benefit from the deal with Google. The Android and iOS versions of the Waze app have been updated with Google Search.
Wazers will now have access to even more search results when navigating. Google Search joins other search providers making it easy to find favorite businesses and any local address.
Also, the Waze Map Editor now includes Google Street View and satellite imagery.
