Waze continues to be the favorite application of millions of users for their daily commute, and much of that preference is due to its crowdsource base. Now its application for smartphone and Android Auto has received a new update that brings several desired improvements.
Since its launch 10 years ago, Waze has introduced itself as a navigation application that has its users as a basis for its smooth operation. It is this social aspect that gives the application a unique factor that continues to win the ‘heart’ of users.
However, even after it was acquired by Google in 2013, the application continues to show some bugs and malfunctions. After all, there are no perfect applications, and with the implementation of new features, some bugs are always expected.
Waze application for smartphone and Android Auto gets update with bug fix
Now the application has received a new update that brings some interesting improvements, both in the version for smartphone and in Android Auto. Nowadays, many cars already arrive with Android Auto installed in their onboard computer, giving their users the possibility to use several navigation applications.
Typically, users end up choosing between Google Maps and Waze. However, due to some bugs, the choice has fallen on the first one. Until now there were two strengths that made Waze much more effective in-car switching, real-time incident warnings and the possibility of using streaming services such as Spotify.
Unfortunately, several users reported problems with music playback via Spotify, causing them to eventually switch to Google Maps. In addition, route selection has also proved to be inefficient, especially when compared to Google Maps.
Now, in this new update, these issues seem to have been resolved. Along with the arrival of some design changes to facilitate the viewing of important information.
As far as smartphones are concerned. One of the most common problems I came across was calculating the distance/time between point A and point B. For some reason, I do not know. Only after I start to move, the time and distance are correctly calculated, leaving me extremely frustrated.
Once again, it looks like this new update will solve this problem. Finally, the application for smartphone has presented some problems in receiving GPS signal on several smartphones, which should also have been resolved in this latest update.
So, if you have not yet received the notification to update your Waze. You can download it free through the link above.
