We were all excited when Google bought out Waze and announced that a partnership between Google Maps and Waze would occur. (Waze has long been known for its real time incident reporting of accidents and road work and such). It seems that the fruits of that endeavor are ready for the harvest. with a new piece of news from the Google Maps team. Google Maps users will now be able to see live incident reporting in Google Maps. This feature is currently available to users in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Switzerland, UK and the US.
If you’re a Waze user, you’ll also see Google Search integrated into Waze, as well as the addition of street view and satellite view. And all of these features span over both Android and iOS, so Google isn’t trying to be all exclusive up in here.
Do these features seem worthwhile to you?
