Use to be I could say "call Joe mobile" and it would call the cell phone of Joe like it should do and the way siri works also. Now I get, Joe and then a list of mobile, work or home which I need to choose from.

The only number I can call without further intervention is if that person has only 1 number in my contact list such as when I ask it to call Jane who only has a cell phone, it dials it out immediately

When the car was new it worked fine but it has been a good 4+ months that it no longer works like it should. Thought an eventual update would correct this but it's been quite some time

Point is UI should be able to say "Call joe work and it should dial the work number without further intervention.

Are others seeing the same or is there a setting or is it just the way it is.

@Midnightsun you are not alone. I don't do a lot of calling in general and have only tried a few times since we took delivery about 4.5 months ago, but each time it has given me a list of numbers to tap on despite me specifying in the voice command. I didn't know that it has previously worked the way you described it having worked in the past. I wish it did again now.

This drives me absolutely nuts! Siri, Alexa, Google, literally every device out there works the way @Midnightsun describes. Now that I know that it used to work, I'm even more amazed. Please, Tesla, fix this!!!!

It gets even worse! I ask it to call John Doe Mobile, problem is John has a bunch of family members so I end up with a list of all the brothers and sisters and all have work, mobile or home to choose from. Worst part is John is the last person on the list and I have to scroll down to see it.

I used John Doe as an example but in real life it is my wife's name and all her family members and yes my wife is the last one on the list. This is what they call bleeding edge tech??? We are getting close to a year with this crap, way overdue for a fix!
