Model 3

Spotify - Only for car with Premium

Really sucks that the music streaming and web browser is only available in Model 3 cars with premium. Now Spotify is coming to Tesla cars, they will only be available on M3 with premium.

Tesla please fix this, so the cars without premuim can enjoy the technology.

    You want premium without paying for premium??

    This does not compute.

    Tesla, while you are at it, please, live traffic display and satellite view so those of us who did not pay for premium trim can also enjoy the tech.

    Will Spotify be available for folks who bought the car early and did not pay for premium features? Folks like me are currently enjoying the full benefits of premium without paying for it.

    @jjgunn,
    I'm getting it now, will I continue to get it? It's a legit question.
    Tesla is known to give a perks to loyal customers, you don't know if you don't ask.

    I'd be willing to pay for premium connectivity on a monthly, yearly or as a one time lifetime payment for the service..

    I personally don't think nor expect Tesla to give me anything fro free but I would like the option to buy premium connectivity services...

    Again, entitlement and wanting something for nothing.
    Hey, why won't Tesla just give me a free upgrade to a premium car?

    What else you want Tesla to fix for you? Add another motor? Bump range to 310? Make 0-60 3.3 second? Make the the cabin as roomy as the X? You know what Tesla have a way to fix that for you.

    Tesla did say premium connectivity was included for one year on Premium trims. After that it was $100 per year. As far as I know, no one is being asked to pay to continue Premium Connectivity.

    Question: Anyone that has a premium trim Model 3 and you have owned if for over a year are you willing to pay $100 per year to continue with Premium Connectivity? Or will you simply opt to Bluetooth from your phones?

    “All Tesla cars ordered on or before June 30, 2018 will continue to have access to their existing Premium Connectivity features at no cost for as long as the car is active.“

    I ordered before the above date, therefore premium connectivity features will always be free in the car.

    If that ever changed or if I buy another Tesla, I would be happy to pay for premium connectivity.

    So can someone explain, slacker plays pretty much any song I want to hear, then why exactly do I want spotify??

    @M3phan,
    This wouldn't be an *existing* premium connectivity feature. Thanks for the info.
    Also, the text suggests that if we were to change the plan the old plan benefits would expire.

    @THOR: You don't want Spotify.

    Those of us with SR+ just would like the option of upgrading or paying a subscription. I didn’t order my car on-line. I went to a store and that wasn’t explained to me. I know it’s my own fault for not doing the research to back it up. We’d just like the option to upgrade. Changing XM stations on my phone is dangerous and actually illegal now in the state I live in.

    I will gladly pay $100/year for what I currently get with premium connectivity.

    @dmastro, all the US people have been jonesing for Spotify to replace Slacker, but I believe the grass is always greener on the other side of the pond.
  • edited August 2019
    Yes, I wish there were a way to upgrade to premium connectivity, for a fee. Like you can upgrade autopilot. With an SR+ partial premium interior was the only option.

    @ rxlawdude: I'm in the Spotify camp, but I'd like it to be additive... not replacing anything. In fact I'd love to see Tesla open up installation of more apps so people can use Pandora, Apple Music, and other apps of their choice. I'd also welcome an MLB At Bat app so I can control it from the car instead of my phone.

    I almost switched my SR+ to LR RWD the night before my delivery date. Couldn’t justify the addl $6k. Long range is nice but you can always charge. With 200 mile range for full charge, I’ll surely would need to stop for a break from driving 3+ hours straight. 1 year Premium connectivity is not gonna tip the scale for me to shell out another $6k. Was not able to justify the cost.

    Tesla said that it will offer Premium Connectivity for $100 a year for all new model 3a including SR. If the only way to get youtube is to have Premium Connectivity, I’ll subscribe. But if it only has things for what is being offered now. I don’t know. I don’t see anything that I can use if I subscribe. I’ll pass.

    You can always stream spotify via phone. I dont know what’s the big deal about adding it in prem con.

    “Will there be a trial period for Premium Connectivity?
    For all Model S and Model X cars ordered on or after July 1, 2018, Premium Connectivity will be complimentary for one year after delivery, as well as all Model 3 cars with Premium Interior. After the complimentary period ends, Standard Connectivity will be available for all cars at no cost, and Premium Connectivity will be available for purchase via the in-car touchscreen. Connectivity plans for Model 3 without Premium Interior will be announced later this year.”

    I upgraded to Spotify Premium yesterday for my newly installed V10 and so far, loving it. I can still switch seamlessly between Spotify and Slacker by simply referencing listening history.

    At first listen, Spotify seems to provide a bit more dynamic range than Slacker - perhaps it's streaming at something higher than Slacker's 96 kbps.

    I have premium connectivity and I do not see a Spotify option under “streaming”. There is a “sign into Slacker” button at the bottom. Do I have to wait for V10 or am I missing something?
