NASHVILLE, TENN. (WSMV) - The traffic app we use here at News4 called Waze is getting smarter.

The Google-owned navigation system launched its first virtual event, 'Waze On,' to let you know about it’s new features.

The event comes one week after the company announced it was cutting 5 percent of its workers and closing some offices due to traffic being down.

To gain some buzz around the app, Waze built in a new trip suggestions feature, so you don’t have to type in places you go to often, and lane guidance to let you know the safest way to access the interstate or highway.

Next month the app will have traffic notifications that tell you about delays on roads that you drive every day. is now with you on the go!
