    Have you noticed Spotify being weird lately?

    Spotify seems to be having trouble following my playlist recently (the last few weeks). I'll ask Spotify to play Rush and it will play 3 or 4 Rush songs and then switch to something completely unrelated, like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Even when I give it a playlist to play, say Rap from the...

    Media Touch Selection not accurate

    Has anyone experienced issues with recent updates where selecting a song on your media player is inaccurate by touch? I will try to select a song and instead it will select something 2 songs before on my list. I have to estimate and touch a song about 2 below the song I want for it to be...

    Export slacker song favorites or playlists?

    Before Slacker streaming is discontinued at the end of the month, is there any way to export all our favorited songs, so we can transfer them to Spotify or some other streaming service? Especially if there's a way to export the songs most frequently picked for the playlists, that would be fantastic!

    Play an Entire Album Option

    When I pull up an entire album to play it seems like it would be handy to have option to play the entire album rather than having to select each track after previous track plays. As it is now I have to wait for each track to complete and then select another track from the album on screen. Anyone...

    In a recent software update, the interface for playing music from a USB drive was changed to move certain things closer to the driver. Good but the random play selector disappeared. Is it still accessible somewhere?

    Tesla Model Y does not show USB flash drive

    Hi, I just got my Tesla Y 2023. I wanted to play music from my USB flash drive and I have tried to use it both with the port inside the glove box (using a USB hub so that the sentry/dahscam works) as well as with the port inside the side compartment (using a to c adapter). But, Tesla does not...

    Spotify Bitrate Measured at 160kbps. …and 128, and 256, and… well, let’s talk about it!

    TL;DR The streaming bitrate for the Tesla in-car Spotify app appears to be variable, averaging around 128 to 160kbps. Disclaimer The testing and results I’m describing here are intended to provide some rough estimates for the streaming bitrate of the Tesla in-car Spotify app. They’re not...

    Tesla trashed my music partition

    I've owned a Model 3 since March of 2019, and have used a partitioned USB SSD as a dashcam and music storage device since then. I originally set it up as two FAT partitions, and this worked fine for years. Recently, I've noticed that the TeslaCam logo has been showing a red "X" from time to...

    Tidal on 2016 Model S

    I haven’t been on this forum for a while so may have missed some relevant information. It is nice to be back! I am currently using Spotify, but plan to cancel my service and switch to Tidal. I was excited to learn that Tidal now is available on Tesla. However, on closer inspection it looks like...

    Audio quality after updating worse in Bluetooth

    The sound quality got drastically worse after updating yesterday and I couldn’t help but notice everything streamed via Bluetooth from my iPhone sounded muffled.

    Home Studio Music Mix USB Playback in Tesla Model 3

    I recently got a new Model 3 and decided to see if the USB drive would work for playing music. It works pretty great with a few limitations. I have a home recording studio and so the most common use case for me would be to check my music or podcast mixes in the car using the USB drive. We also...

    Has Spotify bitrate increased??

    I haven't seen anyone talking about this, apart from @greentheonly mentioning it on twitter recently. This morning I checked for myself, and I think he might be right! For context; I stop short of claiming to be an audiophile, but I am pretty picky when it comes to music listening. I always...

    Awesome Model 3 subwoofer boost install

    Need help with music - think I may have a bug?

    Hi everyone. I need your help. I had a Tesla Model S from March 2018, which I returned in March 2021. I ordered a Plaid then, and just got it. I accepted delivery right away because I figured that it can't be that much different than my old car so I'll figure out all the interface stuff. But...

    Music on external drive missing

    Hello TMC, this is my first post here and I hope it's the correct location in the forum. I just partitioned an external hard drive to use as storage for both camera footage and music, replacing the "default" USB stick approach. Everything works fine. Dashcam and sentry videos are stored in one...

    Model S Spotify Issue

    When using spotify through the infotainment center, there are certain songs that do not play. The first song I noticed this happening to is "Man in the Box" by Alice in Chains. It just skips to the next song. I can listen to this song fine on any other device including my phone, and the toggle...

    Any Updates on Apple Music Integration?

    I got my Model Y a few days ago, and I've been enjoying the car so much. I've seen reports that Tesla is integrating other streaming services like Apple Music back in December. I was wondering if there has been any updates to that since then? Is that a feature that we should still expect? I...

    With one of the recent updates, my CNBC radio station on tunein no longer plays. The play button is greyed out. Tried a local station and works fine. CNBC used to be buggy, but now it completely does not work. In Canada. Does anyone else have this issue or a solution?

    Spotify Free or Premium?

    Picking up my Blue Beauty on Monday. I've set up a playlist for the occasion in my free Spotify account. Will I be able to access it with the account in the Y? Or do I need to upgrade my current account to make that happen? I already have SiriusXM, Amazon Prime Music, and Apple, so don't...

    Has everyone's streaming audio been spotty lately or is it just me?

    One of the most loved features of my MY is the streaming audio. I love being able to think about a song and then request it! Lately (the past couple of weeks) I've been getting a lot of pauses and failure to play a song. With the latest firmware upgrade it's even starting to skip to the next...

    Spotify update - where is my songs list?

    Title says it all. I updated to the latest version and the spotify app is much improved. However, i can't seem to find a place to play all my "liked" songs. I generally just shuffle play through my library for the most part. Did the ability to do that disappear? Thanks for the help.

    USB music playing and iPod - has it got any better with new SW releases?

    Hi all, as a newbie I will be getting my M3 SR+ on 25th June. Looking forward to it but was wondering about the music situation. I have an archaic iPod nano 3 which I naively was hoping just to plug into the USB and listen to music, like on my Nissan Leaf. It is windows formatted so I...

    Tesla Favorites - Music

    Hi friends— My wife and I were listening to Tesla Favorites in music earlier tonight while we were out for a drive. In no exaggeration, The Weeknd came on 27 out of 33 times. We actually counted. Now, I like The Weeknd as much as the next guy here, but is there a way to change, edit, or set...

    Spotify - Bugs/Shuffle Issues

    Hi! I'm surprised I don't see forums already posted about this. I found a few chains discussing it on reddit. The Spotify integration with Tesla's UI tends to be very problematic. I noticed it freezes a lot when I use it where I'll have to tap the playlist multiple times before it actually...

    Hey all, We've got a '15 Model S and a '19 P3D. In the last month the S has randomly started blaring radio music right at about 3am each time. It's loud enough to wake both my wife and I up... I contacted Tesla and they sent an update to the car hoping it would resolve itself but now it is...

    Slacker doesn't play on demand music after V10

    Before V10, when I used a voice command such as "Play Tiny Dancer by Elton John", it would then play that song without any more intervention on my part. Now what it does is bring up the keyboard and behind that is a list of artists and albums that "match" that. Even then, there's no easy way to...

    Sound system quality

    I am not sure if it's just me, but I find the sound quality in my MX to be mediocre at best. This car was built in May 2019 so it has the latest hardware and software but the equalizer function is useless. Memory settings would be a nice start, since the settings are different depending on the...

    Maximum Number of Audio Tracks on USB Drive

    Introduction I find the requirement for a separate USB drive for music and the v9 dashcam feature to be annoying. Without some type of work-around, that would use both USB ports in the front of the car, leaving you with no USB port for phone charging. It's been reported that you can partition...
