    On a recent Tesla Owners Online podcast I heard a confident pronouncement that Apple Music is on the way to Tesla and currently being negotiated. Can anyone else corroborate this?

    That was my assumption too, which is why I was struck by the degree of certainty this person seemed to have, apparently having spoken to a Tesla representative at the Cybertruck launch.

    Man, I would really appreciate seeing Apple Music make its way to my car... Does Apple actually have stringent requirements here? They have their own Apple Music Web API, and Android App, so it wouldn’t seem too far fetched to me. Especially in relation to how Tesla has been treating Entertainment on their vehicles; variety of games and media streaming options, pretty inclusive where space allows.

    This would be perfect. I hope so.

    If they could add apple music, Sirius (which now owns pandora), and Amazon music, that would cover something like 75% of the streaming market.

    I really hope they come with a set default music app too so when I ask it to play it doesn’t run a search and then sit there needing me to then press a button on the screen.

    Taycan got Apple Music. So I think Apple’s requirements are less important than whether Elon “never” wants it just because Taycan has it, or he’s going to implement the same ASAP to show he also can. No middle ground.

    Whatever happened to Tesla’s idea for their own streaming service? Always thought it was a bit unnecessary..

    Why is Apple Music better than Spotify? Just curious because I know lots of people switched to it but I don't see the appeal.

    Not sure if it’s better or not but I pretty much depend on the Apple ecosystem which means I live on Apple Music. Would be handy if Apple Music (not CarPlay) was native like the other music apps.

    Because when I started using iTunes 20 years ago (well, technically 19 years and 11.5 months... it was SoundJam before that which I also used)... I moved my MP3 collection there.

    Then I used iTunes Match to have a cloud-based copy of my library.
    This became Apple Music.

    Merits of Spotify/Pandora/whatever aside, I’ve got 20+ years’ worth of music in my library and I’m not interested in starting over.

    Therein is the beginning and end of why I use Apple Music. Never wasted my time with the other services.

    It looks like both Apple Music and SiriusXM Streaming are coming soon. That will be all I’ll ever need as far as audio goes.

    I also switched from Spotify to Apple Music because of the Apple Ecosystem. It's just built into the native music app and I love the UI visualizations and in-app lyrics.

    I'm excited for Apple Music to be integrated into the Tesla system if the rumors are true from Green on twitter.

    Please let there be Apple Music (and Amazon) App by 2021.4.x. I want to see this ASAP. :D

    I use Amazon - that would be amazing to be integrated.

    Nah. Apple TV is on LG. It's not a matter of if but when.

    I am hoping for a SiriusXM app for the model 3 sometime soon too.
