Google Home & Assistant Migration
Google shut down Home & Assistant voice apps on June 13, 2023. You can keep interacting with your Tesla by using Google Home's IFTTT integration with Tessie, which we've created a guide for below.
We know many people loved the Assistant app and we're disappointed that Google removed this ecosystem. We're in touch with Google to advocate for adding vehicle support back to Google Home & Assistant and are hoping to have a replacement within the next couple months. If you'd like a refund instead, please email us.
Continue controlling your Tesla using IFTTT + Tessie
We've put together a step-by-step guide here.
Alternative: Replace Google Assistant with Alexa on your phone
- Download Alexa for Android and create an account.
- Visit Tessie's Alexa Skill for the US, UK, Canada or Australia to enable it and link your account.
- Open the Settings app on your phone and tap Apps > Default apps > Digital assistant app > Default digital assistant app > Amazon Alexa.
Now you can trigger Alexa by holding the home button and say things like "ask tessie control to lock". You can create your own commands like "heat up the car" or check out the complete list of built-in commands.
Regarding App Actions and Smart Home devices
Google is replacing voice apps with "App Actions" and "Smart Home" devices. Unfortunately, controlling vehicles is not a supported action or device.
