HERE - the maker of HERE Maps - has announced that the app will be rebranded to HERE WeGo. With the new name also comes a number of new features.
HERE WeGo aims to be a one-stop app for navigation, making it as easy as possible for users to find the best route. Once the user plugs in a destination, they will be presented with various modes of transportation. Unlike other mapping applications - which would provide driving, walking, and usually mass transit - HERE WeGo provides all of the above, along with ride-sharing, taxis, and cycling.
The only ride-sharing option, however, is Car2Go; sorry Uber and Lyft users. Users will be able to press a button to launch the Car2Go app and reserve their ride.
The news comes almost exactly a year after Nokia sold off HERE to a consortium of German auto-makers. Back in March, the company announced that its apps would no longer work on Windows phones running Windows 10 Mobile; because of that, Windows users shouldn't expect to see HERE WeGo anytime soon.
