Like its spirited CEO, Tesla has a sense of showmanship. The American electric car manufacturer is about to announce the upcoming support for Apple Music on its vehicles. The company seems to have left a easter eggs in a vehicle on public display in the United States, a practice that has become customary.
A temporary exhibition
As relayed Electrek, the information comes to us from visitors to a temporary car exhibition across the Atlantic. The Petersen Museum in Los Angeles has indeed shown in collaboration with Tesla several vehicles of the brand. And oh surprise, according to those present on site, Apple Music was integrated into the vehicle’s internal system. The automobiles on display that day featured the Tesla operating system for developers.
This discovery would confirm the upcoming support for the audio streaming application on all of the brand’s cars. Unlike other manufacturers, Tesla prefers to integrate applications directly into its system rather than letting its users use CarPlay or Android Auto. A choice that allows increased stability of installed applications, but sometimes limits functionality. Earlier, Spotify and Tidal were integrated into the Tesla system.
An update at the end of November?
If Apple Music is not yet available for all drivers, the imminence of its deployment is hardly in doubt. As our colleagues from Electrek remind us, Tesla often plans a big update before the Christmas holidays, between the end of November and the beginning of December. The latter could therefore be an opportunity to deploy the application.
Available from €4.99 per month in France, Apple Music has announced the upcoming support for spatial audio in certain vehicles. The use of a native application in Tesla vehicles would allow higher quality listening, according to the specialized site NotATeslaApp. On the other hand, it is impossible to know, at present, if the application will be able to support Dolby Atmos and Lossless Audio technologies in its first version.
