Waze teaches G Maps about ads

Pichai didn't provide an explicit answer about plans for monetizing maps, but his comments give a pretty good sense of what the company might have in mind:

"Iím sure you have noticed changes in Google Maps with the last few months. If you open Google Maps, youíre traveling or out on a Friday evening, we start surfacing a lot more info about what you can do, places to eat and so on. So those are beginning to get good feedback from users and I think that gives us an opportunity to add value there overtime as well."
