These slow waves are not felt before or during an earthquake, but can be measured and used to prevent future ones. However, this implies that their method of microscale measurements in the lab can successfully be adapted at the macroscale of earth subsurface. So even if this study is interesting, I doubt it will be used for accurate earthquake prediction before a long time.
Read more to see the experimental device they used and post a comment if you think this method has a real potential to predict future earthquakes.
