We noted strings regarding incident reporting in our Maps v9.79 teardown. This isn’t what those are, even if they’re part of the same feature. The prompt has three options: yes, no, and not sure. Asking drivers whether or not a road incident is still ongoing is sure to make things more accurate for others.
We haven’t gotten around to our Maps v9.81 teardown just yet, so we’re not sure whether this is part of a server-side test or if it’s going live for all with v9.81. However, we’ll be sure to let you guys know what we find out as soon as possible. Nonetheless, it’s nice to see that Google is finally integrating more Waze features into Maps five years after its acquisition.
