Recently Google Maps app for iOS was updated to bring several new features and enhancements to the app. One of the features added in this update allows users to get incident reports and live traffic updates from Waze, the company it acquired back in June. This new Waze integration means users will be able to get real-time information about different types of incidents that have happened on the road including accidents, road closures or constructions. The information on Waze is collected through crowd sourcing.
Apart from the Waze integration the new update also brings a new design for the iPad version. It adds a new way to explore and discover new places, getting ratings and reviews from friends and Zagat, deals from Google Offers and Indoor maps.
