Tesla is working to add Apple Music and Amazon Music as new local on-board music services in electric vehicles.
Although most other automakers are using Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for phone mirroring to handle media playback in the car, Tesla still insists on integrating music services into its own user interface.
For years, the automaker has been integrating various music streaming services into apps built into its in-car display.
Most famously, Tesla has integrated Spotify into its vehicles.
Recently, CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla added Tidal to its integrated music service, and now we understand that the automaker is still working to integrate Apple Music and Amazon Music.

When viewing the different properties, several new options appeared, although they are not yet available:
Based on this leak, Tesla seems to be working to add several new media sources, including Amazon Music, Audible and Apple Music also owned by Amazon.
Tesla drivers will be able to link their music streaming accounts with those services to their cars and use these services through the car interface instead of using these services by connecting their phones to Bluetooth, which is of course already an option.
There is no way to know the time of integration, but Green pointed out that “tide” seems to be the most distant in development.
As more and more media resources enter Tesla cars, the automaker recently released a new software update that enables drivers to hide media resources.
Now, you only need to enter the settings, and only the media sources you actually use are displayed in the main UI.
If Tesla can eventually double the number of music services that can be linked to its vehicles, this feature will become particularly useful.
