Google and Waze officially begin a happy life together

waze_mapThis morning, Google was happy to announce via their blog the official marriage acquisition of Waze. Together, Google and Waze hope to help drivers get to and from their points of interest in a more pleasant and quicker fashion.

According to their post this morning, the current Waze development team will remain in Israel and operate separately for now. The team is looking forward to collaborating with Google Maps to bring some new traffic update features provided by Waze, as well as enhance the Waze application with Google’s search capabilities.

“The Waze community and its dedicated team have created a great source of timely road corrections and updates. We welcome them to Google and look forward to working with them in our ongoing effort to make a comprehensive, accurate, and useful map of the world.” Brian McClendon, Vice President, Geo.

Make sure to check back often, as we will update you on any new features or app enhancements as the life of Google Maps and Waze begins.

    That’s sort of interesting that it was allowed. According to a Waze promo video I saw Waze , Google and some Russian company are the three companies that actually create their own maps using vehicles like the Google cars with the GPS gear and Street Cams on top. Looks like Google is now THE map maker for the Western World.
