It’s almost impossible to imagine our lives these days without navigation apps like Waze or Google Maps. Since Google owns them both, the tech giant from Mountain View has all the interest to update them regularly. And a new feature is up for grabs in Waze that many of us will love: the possibility to send directions from computer to smartphone.
The new feature has become available several days ago, and it allows the users to send directions from PC to phone very easily.
QR code required
The process is as easy as it can be: a QR code is needed to link the Waze account from smartphone to the computer. The best part is that the user will only need to do the process once. After the binding is done, a notification will appear on the phone about the saved route. Thus, the directions are available through the Waze app. 9to5google explains:
Whether it’s an immediate drive or a future trip, simply log in to the Live Map from your desktop using the QR code (you only need to do it once!), enter your destination and starting point, set your arrival time and then tap “Save to app.” We’ll take it from there to ensure you head out at the right time based on the latest real-time information.
Waze remains a reliable app when it comes to navigation. The software helps the user with not only routes but keeping him informed with pretty much any undesired stuff that could come in the way. The presentation from the Play Store says:
Always know what’s happening on the road with Waze. Even if you know the way, Waze tells you about traffic, construction, police, crashes, and more in real-time. If traffic is bad on your route, Waze will change it to save you time.
The new Waze feature is available on both Android and iOS.
