When it comes to navigational apps, Google has at least two options in the form of Google Maps and Waze, with the latter having been acquired by the company several years ago. Both apps offer up navigation, although both do have different features that might have users prefer one to the other.

Now for those who are fans of Waze, you will be pleased to learn that Google seems to be getting ready to test out the app on Android Auto. Prior to this, Waze’s integration (or plans for integration) was announced back at Google I/O in 2016, but following the announcement nothing came to fruition, at least until now where users who are part of the Waze Beta Community have been getting emails asking if they’d like to participate in the test.

The test has yet to officially begin but like we said, emails are being sent out to users to see who might be interested in taking part in it. This will naturally require users to own an Android Auto device and according to the email, it requires that users either own an Android Auto device or who plan to get one.

No word on when the testing will begin or how many testers they are seeking, but if you are interested in taking part in it, you can sign up for it here, although there are no guarantees that you will be accepted.
