Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG): Closing price $865.42
On Tuesday, Google said that it has begun adding user-generated content from Waze into Google Maps in certain countries. Vice President Brian McClendon wrote in a blog post that the standalone Waze Map Editor will now feature Google’s “Street View,” which will “make it easier to correct map errors reported by the community.”
The Waze application also has been updated with Google Search, according to the firm. Tuesday’s updates represent the first large integrations to be announced since Google paid roughly $1 billion for the mobile mapping startup in early June.
