Waze appears on Android Auto

Google has two platforms for navigation – its own Google Maps and the subsequently acquired Waze. The latter is invaluable due to its crowd-sourced traffic and road issues alerts and is a favorite for many drivers.

Now Waze is finally integrated into Android Auto with the latest update, which means that if you have the Google-powered infotainment platform in your car you won’t need to use your phone for it.

There are some differences compared to the Android app, mostly because of regulators and automakers. The important sharing features are still available, though.
