Tesla Quietly Adds Option to Manage Third-Party Apps? for Greater Vehicle Control and Access

Tesla Relaunches Free Supercharger Transfers

Tesla recently slipped in a new option on their website’s account page that’ll let users manage third-party apps. This could mean Tesla’s gearing up to officially support third-party apps, letting users easily and securely grant access to their car’s info to other services.

Maybe, This ain’t gonna be some app store or way to install apps right on your Tesla. Nah, it’s more like “Sign in with Google” or “Sign in with Apple” where other apps can link up to your Tesla just to check you are who you say you are. Android’s got similar stuff for managing logins too.

Right now, some third-party apps like TeslaFi help Tesla owners keep tabs on how they’re using their wheels, but those apps get total access to everything in the car. With official support for third-party apps, Tesla can dish out access bit by bit, upping security and making those apps work better and easier to use.

Support for third-party apps could bring other goodies too, like Apple Maps’ EV routing that looks at your car’s route and battery level in real-time so you can plan your drive smarter.

Supporting third-party apps can also offer other possibilities, such as Apple Maps’ EV routing feature, which can analyze a vehicle’s route and battery level in real-time, allowing for more efficient trip planning.

For now, you can’t actually add any third-party apps, but you can see what services have access on Tesla’s site, so this feature’s probably launching ASAP. No doubt, it could seriously boost how Tesla owners interact with their cars and third-party services.
