How often do you, while driving your car, would like to change the temperature in the cabin, warm up/turn off the seat heating, change the track in the player, call someone or even write a message? I am sure that very often. But we are facing a safety problem. After all, in order to perform any of these actions, it will be necessary to distract from driving and concentrate on another task for several seconds. To solve these problems, the Voice Commands that are in Tesla will help us. Now you don't need to be distracted from the road in order to perform any of these actions.
Tesla offers an indicative list of teams, but in reality, there are many more.
At the moment, there are more than 170 commands that your car will recognize and execute. A list of all the commands that are currently verified users can be found here.
When driving your car, you can enjoy smooth control with Tesla Voice Commands. Using a natural language processor that helps interpret the query and translate it into action for your car, voice commands allow you to control certain functions without the typical severe restrictions on the use of certain words or phrases. Like most features, voice commands will improve over time in both functionality and performance.
To start a Voice Command for Model S and Model X, you need to press the voice button in the upper right part of the steering wheel. In Model 3 and Model Y, you need to press the microphone button on the touch screen or the right scroll button on the steering wheel. When you hear a tone, say your command.
