The Tesla App has received a new update, along with which the owners got a wonderful opportunity. They can now use Siri to control certain aspects of their car thanks to the new Shortcuts automation.
We live in an era when technologies make life much easier. Tesla, being a technology company, constantly provides the best user experience for its products. As part of the new Tesla App update, the company has introduced new Automation Shortcuts. Now, Tesla owners with an iPhone can use Siri to launch Apple Shortcuts automation directly. Previously, this was only possible with the help of third-party applications.

To use Siri with shortcuts, you just need to call the Apple Assistant and say the name of your automation. To run shortcut automation, users must remember the names of the shortcuts. However, this should not be a problem, as these are just function names and the shortest word that describes the act to be done.
Shortcuts are very convenient for managing various modes and functions of the car. And with the help of Apple Watch, it becomes an indispensable assistant. Now you can control Bioweapon Defense Mode, Defrost, Dog Mode, Precondition Vehicle, and more using the app and your voice.
Here's the full list from the Not a Tesla App:
