Google’s Waze app can now be used on the multiscreen Dashboard feature in CarPlay, Apple’s in-car infotainment system on the iPhone. Also, the app now supports lane guidance.
The feature has been in testing since last November.
As first noted by Camilo Díaz on Twitter, this new feature is now available to all CarPlay users. After updating your copy of Waze for iPhone to the most recent version, simply launch the app on Carplay and go to the Dashboard and it will show up there automatically.

CarPlay Dashboard, introduced in iOS 13, was designed to allow customers to use navigation and audio controls in a split-screen view rather than switch between screens. Originally limited to Apple’s own Maps service, Dashboard was updated in iOS 13.4 to support third-party apps.
As mentioned, Waze is now directly integrated with the Dashboard.
