Using your iPhone or Android smartphone, you can communicate with the Model Y remotely using the Tesla mobile app.
To use the Tesla mobile app to connect with your Model Y, follow these steps:
To allow the mobile app to communicate with your vehicle, both your smartphone and your vehicle must be linked to cellular service. If you're parking in an area with limited or no cellular service, such as an inside parking garage, Tesla suggests having a functional physical key on hand.
If your Tesla Account has numerous vehicles linked to it, you must first switch to the Model Y you wish to use as a key in the mobile app. To switch vehicles, swipe left or right.
Note: Your charges are not covered under the Roadside Help coverage if you require lockout assistance from Tesla owing to a non-warranty issue, such as having restricted cellular connectivity and no secondary key accessible.
Note: Third party applications are not supported by Tesla.
On the home screen of the Tesla mobile app, you can:
Send videos to play in the Tesla Theater by sharing the link using the mobile app for supported video sources. On your smartphone, go to the movie, show, or video you wish to watch and tap the share button. If your Model Y is in Park and you share the video with the Tesla app, it will appear on your vehicle's touchscreen.
