Has anyone tried to use the web interface to play songs off Google Music?
I don't know that one.
I did try Pandora, which requires Flash and... no bueno. The Safari-style browser prompts over to download flash for some version of Linux, a basically unsupported Flash besides and the download options would require some installation access to the OS so it doesn't go. I wasn't willing to download an RPM somewhere when I can't clean it off the drive.
Or amazon cloud player... I've got a lot of songs there. Might be flash too though
No, but I have signed up for TuneIn which I had never heard of before and which I now love. (Note that my wife and I speak a mixture of English, German and French with each other so we both love being able to get our old favorite German and French radio stations).
The included Slacker radio is a fine substitute for Pandora.
Slacker I'm sure is fine. However, I've used Pandora for a long time and have nicely "tuned" stations that I've paid for...hoping to not have to pay for another music server.
Plus, Google Music has all my music, so I know what to expect!
Is google music HTML 5? I thought pandora didn't use flash any more, but it doesn't seem to work in the s.
This makes me very sad. I hope Tesla gives Pandora early access to the APIs. I don't want Flash on the car as I'm worried already about security, but I was looking forward to having Pandora available without the use of my phone.
another vote for Google Music! I believe it is the best integration for music you already own, to stream and store it in your car. With GMaps, Google already has a relationship there... Why not? Make it an app like Slacker, but without a subscription.
Can't you just stream it through you phone's Bluetooth to the car's audio system?
I was under the impression that the web browser couldn't pump sound into the car. I haven't tested it but that was my understanding.
I am starting to think running sound from my phone over BT is probably the best option anyway.
That way I can have my phone read text messages to me while driving hands free.
And try as I might I can't get away from Morning Edition and All Things Considered on FM for my commute, and most of the time whatever is playing on WABE my local NPR station is good enough to where I don't change the dial.
Besides most of my non FM listening has been podcasts of other public radio shows that I normally can't/don't listen to when they air.
