One thing that gives the Google-Waze an upper hand that it is free of cost while Uber is taking charge for its service. Google and Uber were once allies as Goggle invested a lot in Uber in 2013, but it seems like those days are long gone as these two companies are moving toward clashing each other. According to the latest news Uber which has been using the Google mapping software is developing its own maps. The competition between these companies does not only limit to this thing only. There is a huge tussle going on between these two companies in developing driverless cars. Also, any Waze app user can sign up as the driver.
