    It would be useful to have an option of having the "radio version" when there are kids in the car. I wonder if there is a setting to do so?

    Hey Paulp,

    If you actually figure this out, short of buying your own Spotify account... Can you please illuminate us all?

    I have spent some time trying to figure this out with my kids all to no avail...

    Thanks.

    I don't think it does. I've asked numerous tesla people and none seem to know if it does (they havnt had a chance to test it yet)
    The release notes are very badly worded and can be interpreted in different ways, and the media certainly reported it wrong. (Although if they were given info like the release notes I understand why)
    Spotify keeps a record of what you have played, which is kind of like a play list, other than you cannot delete the songs you didn't like.
    Still a way better option than rdio, and tesla have done the right thing by giving us an alternative when realistically they could have done nothing.
    Think I'm going to do the 30 day spotify trial, which I guess is why spotify gave us all free accounts.

    Tend to agree on that one, but a 1 month trial is free. If there are other benefits then maybe, but certainly wouldn't buy it just to get a playlist.

    I use Spotify everywhere so it's worth it for me. At work, I have it on my laptop, at home on my PC and my B&O A9 (this is one of the best implementations of Spotify Connect - sounds beautiful), and now in the Tesla! It's a great service and if you want to use it outside of the car it's definitely worth paying for.

    yep, now that they have chromecast support its a no brainer for me.
    I have the family account, so my wife, sister, and parents are all on the same account, cost effective :)
