Service partner deleted

Why after last update, service partner is not visible and when I want to set up it back I just cannot from the app. This is bad because I have no connection with the Service for sending car problems info.

2.5 stars

2.5 stars. I use the application on 2 cars, Passat 2019 and Arteon 2021.
For Passat at first the app was not reliable during 2020, after a few updates in 2021 it worked properly, used to see the closed / open status and starting auxiliary heating.
For Arteon 2021, the app has bugs. The mileage displayed differs from the one registered on the car, the status of the windows is always Open / Red, regardless of whether the central locking is closed or open.
The question to be asked, is it worth paying after 2 years to extend the period of use of the app that doesn’t work properly?

Connection is very slow

I would classify this app as barely functional. The app has some serious lag when it comes to the vehicle status. AC function is very hit and miss, it hasn't worked 9 out of 10 times I tried it. In fact just as I was typing this review it worked for the first time after 2 days. Also please make it so the app has smart home integration such as alexa,Siri and Google assistant so you guys are at least on feature parity with Tesla.....a car with these options from 2012......
