Waze now lets you plan trips on desktop and ‘send to app’

Millions of Waze users plan their trips on the desktop Live Map. Now Waze is letting them send trips to the app version with a single click.

Waze Save To App goes live

After discovering that millions of Waze users plan trips using the desktop Live Map, the navigation app now lets you save and send trip plans direct to the smartphone app with a single click.

The functionality works on both Android and iOS devices.

Waze says the new functionality simplifies things for users, allowing them to find the best route and time to leave before getting into their car.

Once the trip is sent, users will receive time-to-leave notifications based on real-time traffic data – so they’ll be alerted to leave earlier if traffic is heavy.

Route navigation can also be quick-started with one click.

Waze product manager Yael Schwartzberg says the platform becomes the first in the industry to “bring their whole planned drive directly to their app at the click of a button.

“With many people stuck in front of their computer at home as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, we’re now giving them a way to make the most of this setup and hit the road as easily as possible once it’s time to leave.”
