If you want to experience it for the first time, you can now download the Android client and submit your application. Depending on the location of the applicant, it may take a long time to wait.
Some speculate that Waymo's move is a harbinger of expanding business taxi services. After all, the company has said that they are ready to take on more passengers.
According to the company, interested Android customers can download the app and join the waiting list. Once approved, a travel order can be initiated in the App.
Currently, Waymo only provides commercial services in cities such as Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, and Gilbert in Arizona, but local residents are temporarily unable to experience the fun of auto-driving cars.
The experiencer must not only be a member of an early project, but also have to sign a confidentiality agreement to allow them to take a test ride on Waymo's vehicle. However, they can request a transfer to the Waymo One model.
In addition to this public service, Waymo is also engaged in other commercial activities such as shipping, express delivery. However, the company's spokesperson declined to say how many people are currently involved in the experience, but in general it is probably a few hundred.
As for the iOS app client, Waymo said it will take a while to be available on the App Store.
