The update to the Tesla app brings support for over 20 Shortcuts actions, allowing users to get quick access to many of their vehicle's functions, issue commands with Siri, create automations, and combine actions into complex workflows. For example, users can simply command ‌Siri‌ to lock their vehicle and set up an automation to turn on the climate control at a specific time every day under certain conditions. The full list of the Shortcuts actions that the Tesla app now supports (via Not a Tesla App) is as follows:

  • Bioweapon Defense Mode
  • Camp Mode
  • Defrost
  • Dog Mode
  • Precondition Vehicle
  • Set Seat Heater (seat position and heat level)
  • Set Temperature (choose climate temperature)
  • Vent Windows
  • Set Media Volume
  • Emissions Test
  • Close All Windows
  • Flash Lights
  • Honk Horn
  • Lock/Unlock
  • Open Frunk
  • Open/Close Charge Port
  • Open/Close Door (Model X)
  • Open/Close Rear Trunk
  • Sentry Mode
  • Set Charge Limit
  • Start/Stop Charging

Each of the actions are automatically added to the Shortcuts app so users can access them with a tap, via a widget, or a ‌Siri‌ command, without needing to create them. Version 4.24 of the Tesla app is available now.

Can see those being quite fun to play with, but I still have no desire to own a Tesla. ? Until such a time I'm pretty much forced to buy electric, I'll stick with my V8.
Why stop there? Why not use a horse drawn carriage?

Is one of those shortcuts 'dont catch fire' ? What about 'dont crash into pedestrians' ?
I’m so sick of these ******** comments. Go audit a community college course on media literacy please.

The percentage of Teslas being involved in accidents compared to how many are on the road is lower than average cars. Teslas are “recalled” over things patched with free software updates. Are you just as upset at the 232k Nissans that were just recalled because their steering wheels will literally decouple from the car?

Is this a typo or am I out of the loop on what a Frunk is?
Frunk = live saver

On our last road trip with 2 kids and 3 adults we were packed to the gil with luggage and the back was full. we had a carry-on size suitcase and 2 duffel bags still left... we were able to comfortably fit those in the FRUNK which stands for front trunk. known as the engine bay and hood on normal gas cars

I also use this whenever I get takeout. by sticking it in there the car cabin doesn't smell like food. My favorite part is the weird confused looks I get from older folks when they see me sticking a pizza pie under the hood LOL
