Tesla in 2019 introduced its new 10.0 version for its in-car software, which lets you play Spotify on Tesla. Good news for every Tesla owner. Since Spotify is a leading music streaming platform with a galore of music tracks, integrating Spotify directly on the Tesla car makes it easier for the driver to listen to their favorite songs whenever they want to.

However, you can play Spotify on Tesla only if you have the 10.0 version for the in-car software, which means all the older models won't be able to link Spotify to their cars if you have an older version, no need to worry because we have the perfect solution for you. Whether you want to listen to Spotify songs directly on the Tesla or have an older version and want to know how you can do it, keep reading because we will share both solutions.

Now that the new software update has been done in Tesla, you can directly listen to Spotify on Tesla model 3. First, however, do check whether your car has the latest 10.0 version. Try and connect the Wi-Fi, and the update should happen automatically. Get the Spotify Premium subscription to be able to listen to the songs. Now follow these steps:

Step 1. On the screen, click on the Music icon. It will be there in the bottom row. Now, click on the Spotify option. You will be redirected to a new window. Here, you will be asked to log in. Please note that Spotify's free account will not work with Tesla.

Step 2. You can log in by choosing the Tesla account. This way, the Spotify Premium account will be linked automatically. Your car's audio screen will display the Spotify account from where you will be able to choose the songs, playlists, stations, and albums.

Step 3. After the setup is completed, you can use the voice command feature and ask Tesla to play any Premium Spotify songs that you want.

Another way to go about it is to log in to the Premium Spotify account, and from there, you sync the playlist to the car. The rest of the functionality will remain the same. However, Tesla won't allow you to create new playlists.
