Remote Link App No Longer Available

The OnStar Remote Link mobile app was removed from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store in late March 2019. It was previously announced that updates for the app would be discontinued and that the features of the Remote Link app are available in the myBrand mobile apps.

New users will need to download the myBrand mobile app (myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC, myCadillac) to access Remote Link functionality. (Fig. 17)

The myBrand app allows users with a compatible smartphone or mobile device to remote start a vehicle, lock/unlock the doors, view key diagnostic information, set parking information and more (vehicle must be properly equipped).

The functionality of the Remote Link app will be removed in late April 2019, which will impact any users currently using the Remote Link app. Users will get a prompt asking them to download the myBrand mobile app when attempting to use the Remote Link App. (Fig. 18)
