Google Maps for Android and iOS will soon offer Waze’s real time incident reports, according to a Google Lat Long blog post.  Once in place, users will be able to find and report accidents, road closings, construction, and more.  To start, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Switzerland, UK and the United States are expected to offer the feature.

Waze also gets better with Google Search integration for finding businesses and local addresses in both the Android and iOS versions. Wrapping things up, the Waze Map Editor now includes Google Street View and satellite imagery.
