Waze can be helpful dodging downtime and other headaches while driving, but now it helps you make more informed choices before you go. A company owned by Google has rearranged screen on before driving Android i iOS to provide significantly more information on the screen before launch.
You will now see alternate routes, traffic levels, real-time reports, and billing information, not to mention an explanation of why Waze chose a particular route. If the app recommends that you skip the usual route to work, you’ll know what you’re guilty of. You can still choose the usual route if you want.
The updated screen is already available to users around the world. In a way, this is one of Waze’s most important upgrades in recent memory. Although Waze continues to succeed in its automatic route planning, this gives you more control and could help more people understand how the app makes decisions.
