Virtual call and presentation FAQ

What is a virtual call?

Using Google Hangouts, we can offer you a one-way or two-way video conversation. This means that while we would always love to see you, you don’t have to be on camera.

Will I see a presentation of the car I’m interested in?

Even though our showrooms remain closed for the time being, we have a wide selection of online tools to help you get the most relevant information about the model you’re interested in.

Do I need to install an app or programme on my phone/tablet/computer?

If you’re joining via a PC/Mac or laptop, just head over to the Meet homepage.

If you’re using your phone or tablet, please see the technical section below on how to download Google Hangouts Meet.

Remember, you don’t need to have or enable your camera.

Can I use my current phone/tablet/mobile?

If your smart device isn’t older than five or so years, you’ll probably be ok. There are a few things to consider:

  • You’ll need to be connected to the internet
  • If you’d like to have a two-way video chat, you’d need an integrated webcam or external USB camera for the PC / laptop, or use your mobile device’s camera
  • Have a modern operating system (macOS, iOS, iPadOS, Windows or Chrome OS, among many)
  • A modern browser (for example, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari)
