Waze gets updated: new maps and more colorful Moods

Big changes for Waze, the social navigation app. New icons, new Moods and features designed specifically for users

Waze is one of the most used navigation apps by users, thanks to the strong sense of community that developers have been able to create in recent years, so much so that they convinced Google to buy it. The app has just achieved a great result: more than 130 million users use the app on a daily basis, and to celebrate this result a major update has been released, which changes the user interface and brings with it some new features.

The developers have focused on the most social features in the app, starting with the Moods, which represent the alter ego of the driver. Thirty new ones have been added that allow users to express their moods. Are you stuck on the highway because of a long queue? Then the most suitable mood is Zen. Improvements have also been made to the user interface, made simpler and above all "more colorful". Even the maps have undergone changes to make them more suitable to the new needs of users. The Waze update is being released these days and is available to everyone.

New Moods, new icons for alerts, more colorful interface and a new logo. Waze gets a makeover to celebrate its 130 million daily users. And users have been put at the heart of this change: every new feature and graphical change has been decided together with the community.
