Threads on this forum indicate that the On Call app will not be available for the XC40 Recharge for almost two years. How significant is this?

I don’t see value in the concierge services, but perhaps it is important for controlling and monitoring the charge and preconditioning of the car?

Thanks!

Well from a post from @Jersey in another thread for the XC40 Recharge, the in car functionality is no active either.
She unfortunately got a flat tire a week into having the car and had to do a run around with Dealership to get the car towed (no spare tire on car)

So yes you are without any remote monitoring of the car till this is released. Though your timeline is off - Summer 2021 is the official date Volvo is promising.

This kind of app is essential for an EV's daily operation and so Volvo will probably make it available as soon as possible.

For the Volvo On Call, I've lived without those functions for many years so I don't think it will affect me too much to not have it initially. I've had my V60 T8 for about a year, and while I've used VOC on occasion, there really isn't anything that I would miss too much (I live in California so I don't ever need to precondition, and my charger has time of day scheduling built in so I don't have to use the car's app for that, and even if I did that feature is disabled for me for some reason).

For Android Auto/Apple CarPlay being delayed a year, it's hard to know how much that will affect us, because I have found it difficult to find online a list of apps that are available for the built-in Android Automotive system in the XC40. If all the apps that we use are already available (I know Google Maps and Spotify are, but we would also need podcasts and YouTube Music)

Podcasts and You Tube music is available and works. For you tube, you must be a subscriber.
Sirius works through blue tooth media streaming.

Also, there is a nice NPR app and of course all the other streaming music services on the main function screen.
