It doesn't seem to appear in a search of the UK Play Store (although can be accessed via the link above).
Is there usually a time delay for search indexing?

Time delay, and possibly some number of people downloading and giving it a rating, apparently.

Download it and give it a rating please, and have everyone you work with do the same. :)

I am not able to use the VCDS-Mobile Assistant directly.
I have not access to last button on many screens, so I cannot press Go back.
If I choose, Go to Browser, then it is possible to access.
I am using a Samsung s10e.

Here is one screenshot:

Niels, are you sure what you have there is the current version? It should say, "VCDS-Mobile Assistant", not just "VCDS-Mobile":

Hi Niels,

The green background looks odd and we just want to rule out the possibility that you have an old version installed (or perhaps 2 versions of Mobile). Do you get this confirmation when you click Go to Browser?

Also, does VCDS-Mobile Assistant show up at the top of any of the VCDS-Mobile pages?

No I had to short cuts :facepalm:
Right click on short cut, App info, 0.02x old and 0.032 is working correct.
Is it possible to see the version number 0.032 in VCDS-Mobile ?

Hi Shaun,

just played a bit with the new assistant, I noticed two things:

- If you just search "VCDS" in the Google store you find a lot, but not the VCDS app. With "VCDS mobile" it worked. Could the reason the way it is written? As "one" word without blanks?
- If I look on my Android 7 Tablet under "installed apps" VCDS doesn't appear, but all other?! Is it a bug or feature? ;-)

Hi Ralf,

I believe Google won't make our app searchable until it receives more reviews ... but we are aware of the search problem and Shaun reached out to them already.

I believe the (lack-of) VCDS-Mobile Assistant app appearing under the Installed list of the Play Store is the same lack-of review problem. Shaun may be able to add more clarity if I'm incorrect.

It appears in a UK Play store search for "VCDS-Mobile" / "VCDS Mobile" now (and my installed apps list), but not for "VCDS".
I wonder if there are search keywords that can be added somewhere?

You can't tag with custom keywords, only their preselected list. However I think it is also based on crawling the description in the store, so I replaced one of the hyphens there with a space so VCDS will appear as a singular word. Let's see if that makes a difference, I'm sure it will take some time to propagate.
