Google Maps is starting to get Waze’s incident reporting (well nearly)
According to the report, incident reporting started showing up around version 9.79 of the Google Maps application. The screenshots are taken in version 9.81 though, so it’s unclear whether everyone is getting it or not just by updating to the latest available version of the app. The prompts themselves are very simple. Google Maps will ask you a question regarding the surrounding area, and you just answer it by either tapping “yes”, “no”, or “not sure”. This data is then pooled together and used to recommend new routes to other drivers, along with showing icons on the map to other users to signify the situation.
So it looks more like notifications which you can confirm. Not yet actual reports that drivers can submit to share to other drivers... but maybe it is a start and hopefully it gets there.
