Waze will no longer serve Ads starting September 1, 2023.

We will wind down the current Waze Ads product and advertisers will have the opportunity to keep existing campaigns running through August 31, 2023.

We are already working to transition Waze Ads to Google Ads technology and look forward to helping advance your business objectives through our new Waze Ads product soon.

During this transition, we have an alternative solution you may already be familiar with: Performance Max for Store Goals (PMax). This Google campaign uses AI to maximize your in-store visits and sales by bringing geo formats across Search, Display, GMail, Google Maps, and YouTube into a single product. For questions on PMax, you can contact your existing Google channel of support or reach out to Google Support home page. You can also check out our Waze Support Hub if you have any Waze Ads questions.

Case study

Danone drove 6M+ impressions to new Alpro Caffès

A caffe latte is a delicious, indulgent way to get that morning caffeine boost. So naturally Danone wanted to spread the word about their new latte product, Alpro Caffè. The popular French food brand decided to take a unique data-driven approach and worked with Waze to increase brand awareness and promote navigations among millions of shoppers during a high-consumption period.

Meet Alpro Caffè

Danone’s new Alpro brand had a compelling sales pitch: it’s one of the few plant-based latte options on the market. Danone wanted to increase awareness for this exciting line of products and boost offline sales by reaching millions of consumers during a busy shopping period.

Joining forces with Waze

Waze provided Danone the exposure it was seeking for its new Alpro brand through a variety of ad formats. The campaign incorporated Pins to generate location awareness of where Alpro products were available, Search to promote navigations to point-of-sale locations, and Takeover ads to convince shoppers to choose Alpro before their purchases.

Waze raised brand awareness and drove physical foot traffic to petrol stations along the Italian highways. Getting our brand in front of drivers was paramount to the success of the product launch campaign.
