Maybe the removal of all physical buttons opens the way for more usage of voice-activated controls. I'm thinking of even things like vent direction, climate, sound, cruise control, autopilot...

Basically everything.

[Mod edit: we're going to maintain a list of all known voice commands in the first post of this thread]

I do think we will see more voice control. If not at launch, definitely over time. That said, I expect everything that you can control via voice will also still have a manual control.

The latest pictures of the touch screen shows microphone icon. I am guessing there will voice commands. May be limited commands at first.

The voice recognition/control on the Model S frankly sucks. They'll need to get a lot better if they go that route.

Sad to hear that. It must mean that voice recognition needs super-powerful processing and/or data that resides in the cloud. I was hoping maybe tesla's internal processors and software were powerful enough for this application.

S and X infotainment runs on an Nvidia Tegra.
It’s about as powerful as your phone or tablet.

In addition, local (onboard) speech recognition in general isn’t all that hot, never has been.

You need tons of storage, tons of RAM, a *huge* ML database and some hefty processing power to get something akin to what google’s, apple’s and amazon’s digital assistants do. This is why these are all (and will be) cloud based, not local.

The online manual is lacking i.r.t. all voice commands available. Is there a master list kept somewhere? If not, can we start one here? :-D

Edit:
Since people aren't aware of one, I assume it doesn't exist and I just volunteered myself :tonguewink:
Here is an editable Google Docs for people to contribute into:

https://preview.tinyurl.com/teslavoice (if you want to see the full google URL first)

Play "song" by "artist"
Navigate to "home"
Navigate to "work"
Navigate to "location name"
Navigate to "address"
Call "### ### ####"
Call "Person" "Device Type"

There's a running start ;)

How strict does the language need to be? IE, instead of “navigate to...” can you say “go to..” or “we are going home” or “let’s go to...” or “Where is a coffeehouse” ? In other words, how AI-ish is it?

:) I guess I'm asking for some sort of master page/document listing all known commands by category vs. a long forum thread where people chime in and it's hard to read. Something like this for Alexa:
https://www.cnet.com/how-to/amazon-echo-the-complete-list-of-alexa-commands/

If one doesn't exist, can we start one here? Where should it go Trevor? Should it be a Google Sheet so all can contribute?
you can take those that are suggested here and edit them into your first post

I’ll try to test this out. I have gravitated toward what I knew worked.
