At its first-ever ‘Waze On’ global virtual event, Waze has announced a handful of new features launching on the app, including Trip Suggestions, improved ETA calculations, and Lane Guidance, to help drivers know what’s happening on the roads in advance to avoid delays and stressful drives.
Waze Chief Product Officer Rapha Cohen explained how the company is making it easier for people to carpool than ever, with Real-Time Rides and Instant Book all significantly increasing the simplicity of finding a ride or drive.
With fewer public transit options available as a result of COVID-19, Waze hopes its new Carpool features will make it an even better solution for those making essential journeys.
The company wrapped up its virtual event by thanking its loyal users across the globe.
“This was the first time in Waze history that we’ve had the opportunity to bring you all together to celebrate how your contributions are helping create a world where traffic can become history. We can’t thank you enough for everything you do — from your regular feedback and suggestions, to editing and translating, to city-level data… we are here because of you, so thank you and Waze On!”
