(I'm creating this thread per the recommendation of @Akikiki) I really want to use apps like the My Tesla Alexa Skill and Wear for Tesla. Unfortunately, both fail most of the time due to communication errors reaching the car. The only way I can get apps like these to work is by connecting to the car with the phone app first to wake it up, which of course defeats the purpose. The My Tesla author has confirmed that he is in fact already sending the 'wake' command. However, Alexa only gives so much time for the skill to complete before the skill is timed out and the Model 3 takes much longer than this to wake up. The same timeout problem exists for Android Wear, which wants to put the watch back into low power mode when the user hasn't interacted with the screen for some time. Model S and Model X both offer a mode called "Always Connected", but as others have pointed out Always Connected is Missing on Model 3. I've read this is likely due to a different MCU configuration (single unit vs. multiple) and I'm aware that an "Always Connected" mode would increase vampire drain. But since I work from home and don't travel long distances each day, I'm OK with a little power draw in order to improve responsiveness for valuable skills and applications. Is anyone else interested in Tesla bringing the Always Connected mode to the 3?
