On iPhone, for instance, Waze sometimes ended up crashing all of a sudden when trying to choose a different mood within the app. As long-time users know, the moods bundled with the app are an important feature. Hence, the crash likely affected a significant number of users.
The good news is that Waze received a new update earlier this week, bringing the app to version 4.82. And according to the changelog published on the App Store, this version comes to correct the crash that was triggered when the user picked a different mood.
Without a doubt, such refinements come in handy to everybody, especially as they make Waze more stable and reliable overall.
However, most recent Waze updates have been specifically focused on such refinements, with almost no new feature added lately.
This doesn’t necessarily mean users don’t expect new functionality to be included. For example, one of the most requested features in Waze is support for speed bump reports. In contrast, others claim the app should be updated to show the location of average speed check zones.
In the meantime, Google Maps, which is often considered the top alternative, is also getting new capabilities that are yet to make their way to Waze. Google Maps has therefore been updated with the stop sign and traffic light information, so fingers crossed for the very same improvement to be included in Waze sooner rather than later.
