First Look: Tesla App Lets You Talk Through Car Speaker with Robot Voice [VIDEO]

CleanShot 2021 10 28 at 22 28 54

Tesla released its 2021.36.8 software update tonight, which features live camera view for Sentry Mode from the company’s iPhone app.

The update also lets you talk through your Pedestrian Warning Speaker, to scare would-be thieves or just for a prank. Check out the first look from @dezmondOliver below. The Tesla app will also change your voice to sound like a robot–this is so cool:

If you’ve received the 2021.36.8 software update, you need to enable the “View Live Camera via Mobile App” setting, by going to Safety & Security, then scrolling down to the Sentry Mode section.

The ability to talk through your Tesla’s speaker is going to make for one heck of a Halloween for kids (and adults).

Again, this feature will only work if your Tesla is a newer version that can support Boombox and has an external speaker.
