Tesla is working to add Apple Music and Amazon Music as new native music services in the car in their electric cars.
While most other carmakers are turning to phone mirroring with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to handle media playback in their cars, Tesla insists on integrating music services into its own user interface.
For many years, the car manufacturer has integrated various music streaming services in its vehicles with apps built into the center displays.
Most notably, Tesla has integrated Spotify into its vehicles.
More recently, CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla would add Tidal to its integrated music services, and now we have learned that the carmaker is also working on integrating Apple Music and Amazon Music.

When we look at the different media sources, several new options emerged, although they are not yet usable:
Based on this leak, it appears that Tesla is working on adding several new media sources, including Amazon Music, Audible, which is also owned by Amazon and Apple Music.
Tesla drivers will be able to connect their music streaming accounts with these services to their cars and use the services through the car interface instead of having their phones connected to Bluetooth, which of course is already an option.
There is no way to know the time of the integration, but the green noted that Tidal seems to be the longest in development.
With more media sources coming to Tesla cars, the carmaker recently released a new software update that allows drivers to hide media sources.
Now you can just go into the settings and only have media sources that you actually use appear in the main interface.
This feature will be especially useful if Tesla ends up doubling the number of music services that can be connected to their vehicles, which seems to be the case.
