The change, however, seems to have been in effect even before because Waze changed to a much longer name between June 13 and 14.

Witness the tragedy:

  • "Waze - GPS, Maps & Traffic" => 26 characters, pre-June 14.
  • "Waze - GPS, Maps, Traffic Alerts & Live Navigation" => 50 characters, June 14 and onward.

Earlier this month, OnePlus published its custom launcher to the Play Store, and users could even sign up for a beta program to try out new features first. For some reason, the listing was removed shortly after it went live.
