Tesla Model 3: Using Voice Commands

Voice commands are designed to understand natural requests. You can use voice commands to:

  • Call a contact.
  • Navigate to a location.
  • Listen to Internet music.
  • Control various aspects of Model 3.

To initiate a voice command, tap
the microphone button on the touchscreen. When you hear the tone, speak your command. As you speak, the touchscreen displays an interpretation of your command. It also displays tips to remind you of the type of commands you can speak. When you finish speaking the command, tap the voice button again or simply wait.

Note: Voice commands may be spoken in English or French (Canada).

Note: You can also initiate a voice command by pressing the right scroll button.

  • To call a contact on your Bluetoothconnected phone, say "Call" or "Dial", followed by the contact's first and/or last name(s). For example, "Call Joe" or "Call Joe Smith".
  • To search for, or navigate to, a location, say "Where is", "Drive to", or "Navigate to", followed by an address, business name, business category, or landmark. For example, "Where is Stanford University?", "Drive to Tesla in Palo Alto", or "Navigate to Starbucks on Homestead in Cupertino".

    If you have defined a navigation address for your home or work locations, you can use a voice command to navigate there by saying "Navigate home" or "Navigate to work".

  • To listen to an Internet music service, say "Listen to" or "Play", followed by the name of the song, album, artist, or combination.

    To improve voice recognition accuracy, provide multiple cues in your command, such as artist plus song (for example, "Listen to Yellow Brick Road" or "Play Yellow Brick Road by Elton John").

  • Control various aspects of Model 3 by speaking statements or commands. For example, "Speed up the wipers", "The screen is too bright", "Turn on the driver's seat heater", "I'm cold".

Note: Tesla is continuously improving the ability of Model 3 to recognize voice commands. To support these ongoing quality improvements, Tesla captures short voice recordings anonymously. To protect your privacy, these short recordings are not associated with your personal information or with your vehicle's identification number. Tesla assures that it is not possible to search any system for a recording associated with a specific customer or vehicle.
