Skoda has developed a new app called Sound Analyzer and with it the manufacturer's mechanic will be able to listen if something is wrong with the engine. You record the sound via the phone's microphone and then compare it with an already pre-recorded sound pattern. By doing so, you should be able to discover if there is something seriously wrong and where this may be. In addition to the engine, the app should also be able to listen for faults with the DSG gearbox, air conditioning and steering system. The app's accuracy should be over 90 percent.
