Already possible and being done with livemap. Sorta.

Nope. I just added this segment and it shows (on click) on the Livemap instantly.

Waze started out as an "Android-centric system", back in 2009. It was out for Android months before it made it to iOS, and Android development was ahead. It took a year or so for iOS to catch up and then take the lead.
Google's iOS app library is pretty strong. There's no reason for them to stiff their iOS userbase now.

These are very exciting news indeed!
We'll do our best to address all your questions here.
Basically, as Noam mentioned - nothing really changes in our workflow and in our work together.enhket wrote:How will waze and google merge their maps? Will we still have to edit?
This will waze to grow even faster! Congratulations again
Waze maps and Googles maps stay separated and it is not allowed to use google maps data to edit Waze maps.
However - there is going to be a significant focus on the enhancement of the map editor and new tools will be available to us - yes, that includes google's aerials and street view !
