Add Google Home support

Zaxxon41 5 years ago updated by James 2 months ago 32

Are there any plans to add Google Home support similar to the Alexa support?  This would be useful to me.


Google Assistant does not allow voice apps but interacting with your Tesla and Google Assistant with TeslaFi can be done using a paid subscription to IFTTT.

We have created a help article here with details:  TeslaFi Google Assistant

No hope to get Google home??
I would pay at least another €1 a month for Google home/Google Assistant support...


Dreaming about saying "Hey Google, release charge port" before leaving the house...and walking to the car and just pull out the cable without fiddling with the Tesla app or inside the car.

PS. I do not have a Tesla Wall Charger.

This would be amazing

Upvoted, would be awesome to get google home support


Every time I get a notification from this post I get excited thinking it's finally news that they're going to I add it.


The good news is they are all bumps.


or hey Google unlock charger and start climate

Hey Google, turn on Tesla climate.

That would really be nice as I'm rushing to get going.


Where are we at on this?


Recently started using Teslafi and really finding it useful.  Would love to see Google home support please. Any plans?


Up-voted and hereby bumped.


Please add Google Assistant/Home support! 


While not perfect, the EV Car Google Assistant app provides pretty good support (for free) for g-home commands. Since you can generate API tokens with TeslaFi you could even use that if you're worried about supplying user/pass. It even has a new no-op command that will wake up the car.

Due to how third party apps work with the g-home though, you need to first "Talk to EV car" and then give the command, however, with Routines you can set them up for each command you care about so that now I can go "Hey Google, warm up the car" and it'll start the conditioning.

Unfortunately, EV Car Doesn't work anymore.  The developer is still working on a fix to comply with google integration requirements.

it would definitely be useful to have Google assistant connected to this! Imagine the routines one could make. 🤯

why do most apps only default to Amazon alexa and not Google home? 


Jeff bozos is a tesla hater and dislikes elon musk!

also me: another Amazon  📦 came today, what did I order again?

Likewise, I would love to google home assistant.


I would pay at least another $0.50 a month for Google home/Google Assistant support, or perhaps a 1x $50 donation?  It's a must have feature I currently make happen by other means, but would like to keep it all together for simplicity.

After having used both Google assistant and Alexa for home control, i won't be going back to Alexa...


Please add Google Home


I would LOVE to control my car via voice by my phone.

For example,

 hey google, open trunk"


"hey google, start conditioning my car"

Yes please add Google Home support. Don't use Alexa (and not planning to), but I use Google Home everyday!!

Hell to the yes! You can use EV Car to achieve this in the meantime though.

Yes please! I would like that very much!

Same for me too.  I do not need a bookshop doing my internet searches.  

Google Home support would be excellent.

yes please. I don't care about Alexa. 


Don't care about Alexa, and I would love to see Google Assistant support as well. Or IFTTT. Something other than Alexa, which I'll never use. 

I also have no plans to go with Alexa.  I've got Google Home running now and use Assistant on my phone as well.  Alexa makes no sense for me.

IFTTT is an interesting app.  Not sure if it could be leveraged... but might also be worth consideration.


I am looking into third-party applications like Tasker to receive control commands and send the query to TeslaFi. I think this could temporarily solve the issue of not having Google Home direct command


I would also like to see this happen too. I am not planning to use Alexa at all.

Thank you.
