Waze is definitely the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app, with lots of features and tools for users to find their way and reach destinations faster. The app has expanded massively since its initial release, with new features added in each update.
However, the latest feature is unusual, to say the least. Waze seems to think that its users might have trouble remembering things and might forget different objects and even people in the car, more specifically, kids.
These things do happen from time to time, but Waze believes that this problem could potentially affect millions of its users since it has introduced a new feature that will provide notifications so that parents won’t forget their kids in the car. The new feature in beta version has been spotted by.
Still, the feature is quite useful as it can help parents avoid accidents and unfortunate events. The new Waze feature is available in the upcoming beta version of the app. It will allow users to set a custom message and receive it as a notification when they reach their destination.
The feature is available under app settings, underneath the options to prevent auto-lock and keep Waze on top. In addition, the reminder can be disabled at any time from the shortcut in the pop-up window.
Just last month,received another update that would allow users from certain cities to avoid difficult intersections and thus streamline traffic and avoid traffic jams. The new feature won’t affect routing or ETA, as it was designed to balance the latter and limit the number of difficult intersections.
