Waze is one of the most, if not the most used traffic and navigation app for iPhones, Android or Windows Phones. Now the first major update since it was acquired by Google has been released, the new Waze will feature a more modern look of its traffic and navigation service. Drivers will have the chance to report accidents and road issues, to better navigate and share some tips along the way in a much simpler way.
This new update is way cleaner than before and considerably simpler, with just a tap of a button, drivers can now get whatever they want and they can start a drive, get direction to their destination or even send locations. Instead of clicking on each alert, Waze 4.0 will now send you alerts when you approach them automatically, this is because Waze recognized that people who use their app are not always passengers, but the driver himself.
Amongst other features, users will see that it’s faster to send notifications to the community about accidents, road issues, road closures, etc. Also you can send your ETA to your friends much faster than before. And there is a smart reminder feature implemented, that will alert you when you leave your home to go to events and give fast directions based on the current traffic.
For now the new update is only available for iPhone users and for Android users the new update will be coming soon. Mostly, the Waze navigation system starts to better integrate into Google standards and gives a better experience to drivers while trying to get around a crowded town.
