    I honestly don't listen to too much music in the car and mostly stick to am radio streamed through my iPhone. This weekend, I tried to search for a song using voice command ("play Despacito by Luis Fonsi"). Tesla found the song, played it, all good. Problem is, it wouldn't do it again. When I tried playing the same song again, it pulls up "Luis Fonsi Radio Channel", whatever that means, and offers this artist's other songs and songs by similar artists, but not the song I requested. Streaming service does this with every other song and artist I've tried. It creates these "XXX Radio Channels" and just would not play a specific song. Does this make sense? What am I doing wrong? TIA.

    You're not doing anything wrong, but I've found over the last 4+ years this waffles from working great to not at all. Sometimes from day to day the "asking for a specific song" goes from working to only playing songs similar to what I ask. Try rebooting both screens (a couple times).

    If you want to play the same song over and over, you may need to change to a different "station" and then back again to your song.

    Often this has to do with the licensing agreement the streaming service has with the artists.
