It seemed inevitable, or rather expected, that Google would be making use of some of Waze’s features. And that day seems to have arrived—at least for some users. Reports surfaced online that Google Maps is letting some Android users report crashes and speed traps while they navigate, similar to what you can do on navigation app Waze. For those who are part of the test, they see a new “+” report sign at the bottom left of the display. It does only show up though when you navigate with the app. And whether it’s going to be a feature we’ll see in the future is still up in the air. Google hasn’t made a comment on the report just yet.
