Waze, the directions app owned by Google, is now going to help users find parking. To develop the already-active "where to park" feature, Waze has partnered with INRIX, a parking data aggregator.
The Waze interface has changed in a few ways. First, when users are approaching their destination, an option pops up asking whether they'd like to be directed toward the nearest parking lot. Sadly, INRIX is not adding information like pricing and availability of parking.
How well the feature works remains to be seen, but this could be an important addition to the app for users living in urban environments.
