Didn't work for my S9 :(

I get the qr code but the camera never comes up with my phone (I've even manually enabled permissions).

Yup. Tried it with airplane mode, wifi, and normal settings. When I plug it in AA comes up behind the qr code but then it sends my phone back to the start setup screen.

I got a new screen though... Once I cancel the qr it asked me to setup remote device access. After that it shows up in that menu but not keypass.

I'm even wondering if the 2020 supports Keypass - it's listed as a feature on the ordering pages, but is described as solely to enable car-sharing via Maven... Is there supposed to be anything in the car's UI about KeyPass, or solely phone-side? If so, where?

There's almost nothing about KeyPass in the owners' manual. KeyPass is listed as "Standard" on all trim levels of the Bolt on chevrolet.com, but the Owners' Manual lists it as "If Equipped", and it appears to be nowhere in the Settings menus...
I have a perfect test for your theory. I just got a 2020 and still have a month left on my 2017 lease. Keypass showed up in the app options when I have the 2017 selected in the app; however, it disappeared in the app when I select the 2020. Looks like it's not an option on the 2020, which is upsetting because I wanted to use KeyPass now that they're not giving Remote FOB access for free after the initial trial. Perhaps they removed it to try and get more people to pay extra for the Remote FOB option through OnStar.

Oh, 2017s had remote access that continued beyond the initial 5 years?

Before they took it away, I had it and it worked though for me I didn't really have a need for it. However, after it is 'back' I can't get mine paired so I just gave up. It shouldn't be 'that' hard.

The initial trial period is for On Star and Wi-Fi. I canceled both at the end of their trial. But, the Key Fob remote access is part of the EV Connect software that is enabled for 5 years. Some agents will remove it when canceling the On-Star, so you must make sure they keep the EV Connect on your account.

We have a 2020 and have no sign of the KeyPass anywhere in the menu or in the app. As unreliable as it sounds, I guess it is no big loss.

I have a 2019 that I bought new 10 days ago. I cancelled all the onstar/wifi/evconnect services, but I was unaware of a basic EV connect that is free for 5 years. Was this offered for the 2019 models and how should I get it reinstated if so? I've never been able to get the Keypass to find my car, trying on a Note 10+ and a S10. I've tried all the workarounds - plugging it in to USB, airplane mode,etc. Bluetooth works for music etc. but alas no keypass. In my prior EVs the app executed basic functions and information - charging, pre-conditioning, etc. without subscription fees. But apparently Chevy doesn't - outside of keypass. EV Connect is the only service of interest to me, but I don't feel it's worth the price .

Yeah. On chevrolet.com - KeyPass is listed as "standard" on all trims, but it is nowhere to be found on a 2020.

For the record, tried setting up MyChev app this morning in my 2019 Bolt Premier. Using AA, couldn't get it to "take." Multiple tries. Deleted the app.

That sounds a little bit different. This thread is about Keypass. I have also had no luck with it. But all the other functions work. Android Auto (AA) works. For me.
I really only use it now to check SoC rather than going to the car.
Android Go version doesn't work with AA. I'm still not sure about Android One.

The MyChevy app won't work for me. AA works fine.

Definitely frustrating. I would still keep the app, though. I use it to remote start, check range, and double check that I've locked the doors.
