Google Home & Assistant Commands

Google is shutting down Home & Assistant voice apps on June 13, 2023.

Check out our migration guide.

See this guide to link Tessie with your devices.

Interacting with your Tesla

Say "Ask Tessie to <command here>" to interact with your Tesla. For example, "Ask Tessie to start climate".

Have more than one Tesla? See this section.

Create your own phrases

See Create a Routine to create your own phrases, like "Hey Google, heat up the car".

Get information about your Tesla

"is the car charged?"

"is the car locked?"

"where's the car?"

"what's the temperature?"

"what's the outside temperature?"

Control doors, windows and trunks

"open front"

"open rear"



"open sunroof"

"close sunroof"

"vent windows"

"close windows"

Control garage doors and gates

"open garage"

Control climate

"stop defrost"

"heat steering wheel"

"stop heating steering wheel"

"set temperature to 73"

"set temperature to 22"

"enable dog mode"

"enable camp mode"

Control seat heat:

"heat all seats"

"stop heating all seats"

"heat front left seat"

"stop heating front left seat"

By default, seats are heated to level 3. You can specify heat levels:

"heat front right to 1"

"heat rear left to 2"

"heat rear center to 3"

You can specify any seat supported by your vehicle model:

front left front right rear left rear center rear right third row left third row right

If using seat heaters in a routine, use an underscore in the seat name to make sure that Assistant understands you correctly, like this:

"Talk to Tessie to heat front_left seat"

Locate your Tesla



Enable keyless driving

"remote start"

"enable keyless driving"

Control Sentry

"enable sentry"

"disable sentry"

Control charging and the charge port

"start charging"

"stop charging"

"charge to (50-100)%"

"close port"

"open port"

"unlock port"

If you have multiple vehicles

Tip: Use vehicle names that don't include individual letters or numbers like S, 3, X or Y. Names like "Model 3" aren't understood by Google Assistant since it contains individual letters and numbers.

You can name your vehicle by stepping inside your Tesla and tapping Software from the main settings screen.

We recommend creating a routine to make commands to multiple vehicles fast, easy, fun, and to ensure that Google understands your vehicle names correctly.
