Waze 3.2 arrives with gas prices, perks, and more

 

A new version of Waze is in the Google Play Store today which saves users not only time but also gas deals, waypoints, voice reporting, and more.  Thanks to a partnership with gas stations across the country, Waze 3.2 users can now enjoy a discount of 5¢-10¢ per gallon.  What’s more, there will be new coupons and promotions coming over the next few months.

  • Category search lets you find local business by category (think coffee shops, car wash, pharmacy) along your way.
  • Waypoints allows you to add a stop en route to your final destination, and get accurate ETAs for both. (iPhone only, coming soon to your Android phone too!)
  • Text-to-Speech now supported in 9 new languages! TTS capabilities provide you with turn-by-turn voice prompts, including reading the street names you’ll be turning on, so you’ll never need to take your eyes off of the road to know where to turn again. Waze has been studying hard, and can now read street names in UK English, Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Italian, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, and Swedish.
  • Voice reporting: Android users can now join their iPhone counterparts in reporting incidents on the road, hands-free

The gas features are currently only available in the U.S. right now, however Waze promises additional global support in due time.  Further, you guys and gals will also get some discounts of your own.

Download and install Waze for free on your Android handset today.
