Google has announced the roll-out of the first "synergies" from the Google Waze acquisition to Google Maps and Waze users. In a blog post, Google said that real-time Waze traffic updates for iOS and Android will appear in the Google Maps app.
Here's an extract from the blog:
"Users of Google Maps for Mobile will now benefit from real time incident reports from Waze users. This means when Wazers report accidents, construction, road closures and more on Waze, the updates will also appear on the Google Maps app for Android and iOS in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Switzerland, UK and the US".
The Waze application has also been updated with Google search box and the Waze Map Editor now comes with Google Street View and Satellite Imagery.
