This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The Tesla app puts owners in direct communication with their vehicles and Powerwalls anytime, anywhere. With this app, you can:
- Check charging progress in real time and start or stop charging
- Heat or cool your car before driving – even if it's in a garage
- Lock or unlock from afar
- Locate your vehicle with directions or track its movement
- Flash lights or honk the horn to find your vehicle when parked
- Vent or close the panoramic roof
- Summon your vehicle out of your garage or a tight parking space (for vehicles with Autopilot)
- Engage with Powerwall: monitor how much energy is stored from solar, used by your home, or exported to the grid
Note: Powerwall features in this app require Powerwall 2

What's New in Version 3.2.3
When temperatures are near freezing, preconditioning will also heat your battery for better driving and charging performance. We recommend you plug in to reduce range loss, and start pre-conditioning about an hour before you plan to leave since it can take some time to warm up the battery in colder weather. Note: Requires vehicle software version 2017.50 or above.
In addition, you can now swipe to switch between your vehicles and energy products.
Fix the damned password problem
Do the people who develop this app have to use it? It doesn't seem so, because if they did they would have abundant incentive to fix the exasperating problem of having to re-enter the password over and over and over again throughout the year, as the app perpetually forgets that a password was established, or that Touch ID was activated. Half the time that I go to use the app when pressed for time, Touch ID is inactive in the app it demands that the password be re-entered, and Touch ID be reactivated (AGAIN having to enter the password). Can't Tesla get this simple function to work right?
Good extension to car features that could do so much more
This app does a great job of giving you a lot of basic functionality for the car, but it would be fantastic if it could a couple simple additional things, like setting a time of departure and the car automatically warm itself up, precondition the battery, and charge itself for optimal performance. Would also be great to set a schedule (ie Monday I leave by 7:15 AM) and have the car do its thing.
I like how the app isn’t cluttered nor clunky. It works as expected. I like how I can heat/cool the car whenever and wherever, set/start/stop charging, and even start the car from the other side of the world if someone needs to drive it while I’m on vacation. I do wish there was a way to roll up/down the windows and open the trunk through the app.
