Tesla Pro Tip: Control USB Music With Voice

Listening to music inside the car is a classic pastime for driving just about anywhere, and in the age of smart devices, there are more options for doing so than ever. Even if you aren’t using Bluetooth in your Tesla, you can still control USB devices hands-free while you’re driving, which is ideal for staying as safe as possible on the road.

No matter what device you’re hoping to play audio from, there’s a way that Tesla drivers can use voice commands to control USB device playback. Suitable for shuffle mode or other types of playback, this simple trick will let you go hands-free, even if you have your device plugged into the USB port.

Read this week’s Tesla Pro Tip from Erwin Meyer at below, which lets you control USB-connected devices with voice commands.

But from here you can use voice control and specifically say: “Play Songs On USB,” which brings you right back to where you were. This works in shuffle and all other modes.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
