Waze results in autocomplete Open to all users!

Postby BellVillense » Tue Jan 07, 2020 12:08 pm

Hi all,

Following a few months of testing and experiments, Waze results in autocomplete is now available to 100% of the users. This means that now all Waze users can find Waze addresses in autocomplete that don’t exist in Google, but are unique to the Waze map.

During the testing period, which involved our very own Beta Community, we saw an overall slight increase in performance (lift in users that select a search result in autocomplete) and decrease in query length (meaning users type less to get their results).

Next steps are to integrate Waze places (venues) into autocomplete as well, and then provide a better search experience by improving the way we rank results in autocomplete results in autocomplete.
