Congratulations!

Waze has been innovative in many ways and has clearly become the leader in social mapping. I'm glad that you've all been rewarded for all your hard work and vision.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Joining the Google community will only help Waze in the long term and I look forward to seeing how this evolves.

Here's a video from Google I/O 2013 that occurred mid-May 2013.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=FsbLEtS0uls

It shows Google's current directions and processes as it relates to Google Maps.

You can also request an invite to try out the new versions of Google Maps which are quite different than the current version. Both the mobile and web based versions are getting an update.

Since Waze is now partnered with Google, can there be an option to log in with your Google account and eliminate the temporary username/Facebook login?

Google confirmed it here: http://googleblog.blogspot.ch/2013/06/g ... rting.html

Congrats Waze Team !

I realize there are many people not happy over the Google acquisition from reading certain comments. But all in all I'm just happy it's Google and not Apple or Facebook, they would probably have made Waze a lot worse, but Google Maps ARE good, so I'm sure Waze can really benefit from it.

As for those who are paranoid with the government following you, well chill, your life is probably not as interesting as you want to make it sound. Besides you all know where the OFF switch to your GPS is don't you?

I just wonder if that will change things on the long run and if we will still use the current map we work on editing everyday or switch to a Google Map of some sort. Time will tell

@ The Waze Team - You're also getting a few comments on your Facebook Page about this. I've been responding to comments of worried people by pointing them here to read this forum. But I think you should also manage the comments or make a new post on there for people who don't use forums.

@ The Waze Team
As I suggested before, forums are good but please also don't forget about communication on your Facebook page, people are asking questions there and some italian guy is getting angry :roll:
