Lyft Is Making Waze The Default Navigation Guide For Drivers, Has Other Integration En Route

Lyft and Waze are both Android apps focused on getting you from one place to another. The former hooks you up with a driver who drops you off where you need to be. The latter is a navigation app that tells drivers how to get there. Now the two are becoming good friends.

Soon Waze will become the default navigation app for drivers, which Lyft hopes will lead to faster routes. Drivers will see a "Return to Lyft" button inside the Waze app that opens Lyft. This will enable faster switching between the two.
