Google just keeps making Google Now better. With this latest update to this Google Search app, Google Now will be able to send you alerts if there is an incident that has halted traffic on your route. If this sounds familiar, it is because Google-owned Waze already does the very same thing. As you can see in the example above, Google Now is actually collecting the information directly from Waze. Whether it is roadwork or an accident, Google Now will alert you.
Looks like Google is finally putting Waze to work, right?
