For those who don't know, Waze is part of Google. That is, it is normal that we see in recent times more implementations of some of the features in Google Maps.
Previous updates have given us the ability to report situations on Google Maps. Today we have the information that a larger list of possibilities is coming to Google Maps and Android users. IOS is expected to arrive next. At the latest, reportedly, next week for both systems.
Reporting road problems on Google Maps is identical to Waze
If you're on the road and you see a speed camera, an accident or even a car parked on the side of the road, you can immediately report the situation so that all users passing by with Google Maps are warned.
To do this, you just have to click on the bubble in the right corner (the fourth) and sort the situation. The process is simple and quick to do, however, I feel obliged to warn you that when you are driving you should not pay close attention to situations other than the road.
Categories available for reporting road issues
- Speed cameras
- Traffic too slow
- Construction sites
- closed roads
- Damaged vehicles
- Objects blocking the road
Internet connection is essential
You can use Google Maps without being connected to the internet, however, so you can enjoy these accurate warnings about being connected to the internet. The same applies when you want to report a situation on the road. Apparently, Google Maps warnings will also migrate to Waze and vice versa.
Google Maps continues to improve the way you tell us. Personally I prefer Google Maps over Waze for its versatility. Waze is, in my opinion, more capable of driving directions, but Google Maps gives you more information about the places you are currently visiting. Whether or not you're driving.
