    Has Tesla made any update here?

    The browser on the S and X is embarrassing and Tesla should be ashamed.

    In terms of alternative solution, every car released last year has either Android Auto or Car Play enabled.

    I'm asking under that philosophy. Does the Model 3 offer Car Play or Android Auto?

    The MS and MX have a custom written app in QT that exposes a user agent of QTCarBrowser

    We don't know what the M3 will have.

    Anyway, as @HankLloydRight said (props on the username), it's a QT app. Yes, it's a garbage browser, but it's still better than the zero browser available on any other car.

    Again, what is Tesla alternative for Carplay and Android Auto then? I like to have usable version of Waze or access Amazon music in car....

    By the time this car gets to a real owner's hands, we in 2018.

    Tesla doesn't offer those features, at least not today, though a future software update could change that. If that's a deal breaker, get a different car.

    If you're buying the car for infotainment, you're buying the wrong car.

    I guess the idea is that you can bring your own "infotainment" and use that while the car is self driving.
