Google Maps now includes real-time Waze incident reports


Following the acquisition of Waze in June, Internet giant Google today announced its maps will now contain incident reports indicated by Waze’s servers and will soon be available in the Google Maps application for iOS and Android.

This means that when a Waze user reports an accident, maintenance or road closures on Waze, their updates will also appear in real time on Google Maps applications in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States …

The Waze team said: “Not only will we continue to update users regarding traffic and, but Waze incident reports are now also displayed on Google Maps for Android, iPad and iPhone.”

Incident reports within Google Maps will not include waze users’ profile information, but collaborators will still be able to earn points on the Waze app.
