Google Maps has been the only option for navigation when it comes to Android Auto since its launch, but that may change soon. Google announced Waze support months ago, but this is the first we’re hearing about progress.
The Waze Beta community has been receiving emails asking if they would like to test Waze on Android Auto, meaning an official launch is not too far off. If you prefer Waze over Google Maps and use Android Auto on a daily basis, this should be a big improvement when it launches in the future.
If you want to try your hand at testing, you can join the Waze beta testing community here. There’s no guarantee you’ll be able to test Android Auto support though. Let us know how it goes!
