Release Schedule for UConnect 8.4N/RA4 Media/Info Apps
I thought it might be useful to have a thread underway tracking the (on-and-off again) release schedule for the Media and Info Apps for UConnect 8.4N/RA4 systems.
I was on the phone today with UConnect Assist concerning what Apps I should be seeing and being able to use within the Apps Menu on my 2014 Overland.
* The Chrysler Call Center rep I talked to confirmed that Bing is released and should be operational on all 8.4N/RA4 systems.
* The Chrysler Call Center rep said that the next scheduled Media/Info App to be made functional for my system is most likely Yelp, and the current ETA release schedule for Yelp is June 14, 2013.
* I asked what is the ETA for Pandora App, which is the one I am most interested in having functional. No specific release date, for now. "One or two months out" he guessed...
I asked the Call Center rep why I occasionally would see Pandora and other "missing" Apps appear in my Menu, but a few hours later they would no longer be available in the Menu. For what it is worth, the Chrysler Call Center rep said that this is a consequence of UConnect engineers testing the functionality of their incremental improvements to various Media/Information apps. They will push out an "alpha" release of Media Apps to real VIN vehicles for a few hours at a time, he says.
So it goes...
