Flash headlights
Schedule ventilation
Check lock status of individual elements - windows/doors/boot etc
That's all I use it for ...except for flash lights.

Guess I won't be downloading it then 🤷🏻*♂️

Good luck,

Managed to get it from apkcombo. Thanks! And the app works, even if I'm not in one of the supported countries (Norway).

New Android version out. Looks like all functionality has now been removed as all I can do is see service requirements. Unable to lock or unlock or set heater

I asked when they will introduce it in more countries. No exact date yet, but customer service told me that it should be available during November in Finland.

Itís fairly easy to do on iOS if you know what to look for

Just installed the myBMW app in Australia using the UK as my location and while it feels like itís missing things from connected, it is much more reliable so far than connected at sending commands to the car and refreshing data

Has anyone got Alexa integration to work?
It used to work, but seems to have broken itself 2-3 weeks ago

Thanks!!
It is has been update a couple of times.

Functionality is almost identical but it looks nicer (personal). I have a feeling the connection is better.

You can't honk the horn with the My BMW app.

With the updates: departure time programming, pre heating and cooling, 360 view and head light signal are now available.

New in the My BMW app:
Connections between car and phone are visible (WiFi / Bluetooth)
Total KwH charged each month and individual sessions and also electric driven Km / miles are visible for PHEV

Not a real big difference overall expect the design.

The video is not accessible ... the new BMW app is available via:

https://apkcombo.com/apk-downloader/...d.mobile20.row
or
https://apkpure.com/store/apps/detai...d.mobile20.row

Good luck.

I don't think the My BMW app is available outside Europe. Isn't it only available in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, UK ?

I think the "All Good" presentation is nice. But it looks like we've lost several functions of varying importance. And I don't see any new functions that have been added, so unfortunately, I think the My BMW app is a major step backwards from the "BMW Connected" app.

Things I think we've lost:
- ability to beep car horn remotely
- Apple Watch functionality
- Ability to view details of sunroof, trunk, hood opened or closed
- Remote View 360 picture around car
- Remote start vehicle

I get remote view on the newer app, thankfully Connected app still works (at least in the U.K.) - Iíve got an X5 though so there may be differences as a result.

Agree re Apple Watch, thatís something I like but it does still work via the older Connected app (lock/unlock and light flashing).
