Waze app is functioning very well and also introducing new features with Apple. After it enabled CarPlay support back in September. Waze app by Google was updated and also added new feature Siri Shortcuts that Apple introduced in the latest version of iOS 12. The latest version of iOS 12 will let you locate your way to a destination and now you can also set up or manage shortcuts for things such as morning commute, direction to your favorite places etc.

The best advantage of using voice control for navigation during driving is somewhat understandable, and Waze app with the Siri Shortcuts feature will provide users more of an option to Apple Maps. Which indicated that users do not have to pick up his/her phone to find or locate the direction. Users who use the Waze app to drive clear of traffic, hazard places, construction work going on, are now eagerly waiting for this update.

And if you are a new user or you are not familiar to the Waze app. So let me tell you that it is an amazing and a best mapping service provider for drivers that many people prefer than Google Maps, as it takes data and information about the speed traps, report accidents, and road closures from the drivers. Which leads to best routes.

But as we know NYPD has requested against the Waze app to Google. And also ask Google, not to show and indicate the DUI checkpoints. So, it might not work for you to drive clear of DUI checkpoints in the near future.
