CZECH car maker Skoda is continuing its technological transformation with a new app that combines smartphone applications.
The new MySkoda App, which is available from Google Play and the App Store, integrates the functions of the company's Connect App.
For users of the Skoda Connect App, the changeover is straightforward and users need to update the app they currently use so that they can use the new one.
People who have been using the MySkoda App up to now must install the new application and can then log in on their device using their current access data.
The customer accounts are transferred to the new app automatically and there is no need to register again or re-add Skoda vehicles that are already registered.
Users who do not have a Skoda ID and have previously logged in to the App with login data from external providers, such as Facebook, must create a Skoda ID on the Skoda homepage or directly in the new MySkoda App.
The previous MySkoda App will be discontinued after the changeover phase.
The new app offers all the functions of the previous two apps in one application and can be used in conjunction with smartphones, smartwatches (iOS only) and the central display of the car's infotainment system.
Users can access their car's operating manual and manuals for all Skoda models are now included.
There is also information about Skoda service partners, even abroad, in case there are problems with the car, for example, when on holiday.
The new MySkoda App also offers support for vehicles that do not have access to the mobile online services of Skoda Connect, or that cannot be connected directly via SmartLink.
In addition, drivers will find all the features they are familiar with including remote vehicle access, which allows the vehicle to be locked and unlocked via the app and displays the current parking location of the vehicle if required. Current driving data and information on the vehicle's condition, such as range and maintenance intervals can also be accessed.
Specific e-mobility features are available for electric Skoda model, such as a remote control for charging the battery.
