    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...

    TuneIn CNBC Not Working

    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...

    Model S randomly starts blaring music in the middle of the night...

    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...

    Android connects, music title displays but does not play

    My moto X4 phone connects via Bluetooth to my car fine. I can receive calls via the phone & car successfully. When I select "phone" on the car's audio menu, and then play something from the phone via Google Play or another app, the Tesla displays the name of the track, and the play/pause...

    Spotify Playlist voor in iedere Tesla

    Hey! Dit is mijn eerste post. Ben erg blij met mijn M3, en om software V10 te vieren heb ik een Spotify playlist gemaakt met (wat mijn betreft) goede muziek voor de gemiddelde Tesla rijder! Het is vooral meer lowkey tech, relaxed house .. etc. Doe er je voordeel mee! En ik hoor graag wat...

    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...

    Apple have just put up a new web based version of Apple Music Apple Music I have an SR+ without Premium connectivity so I can't test this myself but could you load this in the car and stream Apple Music whilst driving?

    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...

    Six Upgrades for the Tesla Entertainment Experience

    Last year around this time, I wrote a detailed post with recommendations for Tesla's Entertainment System to improve the overall experience. A few items were addressed in Tesla's release in early fall of 2018, which was great. Many weren't, which is fine, though a revisit of the current...

    Maximum Number of Audio Tracks on USB Drive

    I realize there has already been a lot of discussion of the various shortfalls of playing music from a USB drive, but there's one issue I'm having that I haven't been able to find in a prior thread. I have about 400GB of music files --about 20,000 tracks (mostly FLACs from when I ripped my CD...

    SR+ Bluetooth audio is terrible with windows open

    Alright everyone, there are ton's of threads on people complaining about audio in the SR+, but here's another. I'm completely shocked that in a nearly 50 thousand dollar car I can not listen to music with the windows open. Does anyone have any suggestions to make the sound quality any better...

    Music suddenly gets louder when shifting

    So for some reason when I shift from park to reverse or drive, the music goes to a preset 5 which is too high for me. Even if it's on mute. When I'm using phone music, and I shift gear the music just stops but it's not paused. I have a 2017 model s 75d on 12.1.1 Definitely a problem and needs...

    Keeping music on when M3 is parked with family in car

    I've only had my Model 3 for a month, so bear with me here. Situation: My wife is in the backseat with newborn and I need to go inside a store. How do I keep the music on when I leave the car? I know "Dog Mode" for AC, but I can't figure out how to keep the music on too. For other M3...

    Music/ podcasts keep skipping after 2019.8.X

    I have been having issues with playing music in general either from slacker or podcasts from tunein or songs stored on usb. The music skips or sounds distorted like a CD player would when a car goes over a bump. Having this issue since I got the dashcam update. This is very annoying especially...

    Console freezes when switching from radio

    So I got my model 3 two days ago and noticed today that when I switch from the radio to streaming on slacker (I select "Todays hits") the entire console freezes and becomes unresponsive and after a couple of seconds the music will also stop playing, the only way to fix it is by restarting the...

    How does the audio work?

    [V9] How to Format USB into 2 Partitions for DashCam and Music [Windows]

    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...

    Work around for albums being Split on USB Flash Drive Music

    This isn't the first time I've had to "tweak" my music library for a new car or Radio. I have about 10,000 songs 600 albums on a 128gb USB 3.0 Drive. There is a "bug" in Tesla Model 3 that splits Albums if the Artist Tag is different between tracks within an Album. I have lots of "compilation"...

The individual songs from each Album get put into a separate Folders on the flash drive and the...

    Songs that should be blocked by next Firmware update

How does the audio system display the albums/songs/artists on the USB, and how do you select what you want to play? Can you use voice commands to select songs/artists? Thanks

    Israeli Mizrahi Pop Artist recommendations?

    Hi All. I know this is a rather obscure musical genre, at least in the greater scheme of things. I've recently discovered contemporary Israeli Mizrahi pop music. I have some iTunes downloads from Sarit Hadad, Eyal Golan and Kobi Peretz. I'm a fan of the Mizrahi "oriental" sound with some of the...

    Spotify Deezer

    There are a lot of things to love about my Tesla Model S - Just one of them is Slacker Radio. While I am far from being a seasoned veteran, having owned the car since November 30, 2014, I am loving Slacker. Recently I have been binging on Miles Davis radio. Joni Mitchell, Bach, and Led Zeppelin...

    Sound isolation somewhat lacking for music and Bluetooth calls

    Half of my time spent in the MS I listen to Slacker and the other half I spend on conference calls for my job. In both cases, unless I am driving down the highway I keep my volume to 4-5 so I can hear comfortably. When I am parked I have had several people observe that they can hear the music...
