How to Play YouTube Music on Tesla?
Tesla has won millions of users' hearts with its astonishing technology developments, beautiful designs, and powerful electric motors. Moreover, car aficionados may now enjoy a personalized and immersive musical experience thanks to the latest integration of music services into Tesla automobiles.
However, while Tesla offers music streaming services such as Slacker, Spotify, TIDAL, and TuneIn, YouTube Music is not yet available from Tesla’s infotainment system. YouTube Music is a popular music streaming service with over 100 million songs from a diverse range of artists, albums, singles, videos, remixes, live performances, and more. What a pity! Is there a solution to fix this problem for YouTube Music users? In this article, we will go over how to play YouTube Music in Tesla in detail. You can learn five methods to listen to your favorite YouTube Music while driving Tesla.
Although Tesla cannot directly play YouTube Music, you can connect your phone to Tesla via Bluetooth to enjoy your favorite YouTube Music while driving. Please make sure your devices are Bluetooth-enabled and the Bluetooth has turned on both your devices. Here is a guide for you to follow:
Step 1 Go to "Settings" on your phone, select "Bluetooth", and open the Bluetooth pairing mode.
Step 2 Touch the grey Bluetooth icon in the top right corner of Tesla's touchscreen, tap "Add New Device +" and then choose "Start Search".
Step 3 Choose your phone from the list of Bluetooth devices displayed on the screen and confirm on your phone.
After you've connected your phone to Tesla, you can play YouTube Music tracks on your phone, and you will hear them through Tesla's Media Player. When a YouTube Music song starts playing, you can control the playback by using the next and previous icons in Tesla's Media Player easily.
TeslaMirror is an app that will help your mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, or Android) mirror your Tesla vehicle. After the successful connection, YouTube Music tracks on your mobile devices will be displayed on Tesla's touchscreen using this program, allowing you to simply access various songs and playlists from YouTube Music.
Step 1 Install the TeslaMirror app and open it.
Step 2 Connect TeslaMirror to your Tesla.
If you are an Android user, tap the "Apps" button on your Tesla's screen, select "TeslaMirror", and choose "Mirroring". If you use iPhone, open the Bluetooth of your iPhone and select "Start Mirroring" in TeslaMirror.
The screen of your mobile devices will be mirrored on your Tesla's touchscreen and you can play YouTube Music tracks directly on Tesla now.
Another convenient option to access YouTube Music in Tesla is to use Apple CarPlay. However, keep in mind that this feature is only available to YouTube Music Premium and YouTube Premium users.
Step 1 Connect your iPhone to your Tesla via a USB cable.
Step 2 Click "General" in your iPhone Settings, choose "CarPlay", and then select your Tesla.
Step 3 When you click "Customize", you will see a list of applications and you need to add "YouTube Music" to your Tesla.
After all, you can ask Siri to play YouTube Music music on Tesla. No need to touch the screen so you can focus on driving safely.
To stream YouTube Music, you must have a stable network connection, whether you connect YouTube Music to Tesla via Bluetooth, TeslaMirror, or Apple CarPlay. Aside from that, free users can only listen to tracks with adverts on YouTube Music. As a subscriber, if you cancel your subscription, the YouTube tracks you downloaded will be invalid, and you will need to reconnect to the internet with a premium account to keep your YouTube downloads valid. Is there a way to listen to ad-free YouTube Music offline without a subscription? All you need to do is to install a third-party program——TunePat YouTube Music Converter.
With TunePat's advanced decoding technology, it can download YouTube music in MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV, AIFF, and ALAC formats while preserving its original sound quality and ID3 tags. Simply add a playlist to TunePat from the built-in YouTube Music web player, and you can batch download YouTube playlists to your computer at up to 10X speed. Then transfer them to a USB stick for usage in your Tesla for offline playing.

All of the downloaded YouTube Music songs will be recognized through USB and you can select tunes using the touchscreen.
