Zoom Meetings Are Coming to a Tesla Near You

zoom meetings are coming to a tesla near you

Many of us are living in a remote work world now, which means we now sit through endless video meetings instead of piling into boardrooms. Tesla hopes to turn your car into another meeting space, announcing that Zoom would soon come to its EVs’ infotainment systems. 


The feature was revealed at a Zoom product conference, not by Tesla. That said, Elon Musk previously confirmed that in-car meetings were coming, so this isn’t a total surprise. Zoom pulled back the curtain on the tech at the Zoomtopia 2022 event. 


Tesla has come up with plenty of useful features, but just as many of its quirky “innovations” are less clever. Despite that, and the fact that it’s easy to pile on Tesla, this actually looks like a helpful feature. The teaser video from Drive Tesla Canada shows a person using the feature while charging their Tesla, allowing them to make use of otherwise dead time. Sure, being connected to work at all times is unhealthy and annoying, but for some people, it’s impossible to avoid. 


It's unclear when the feature will appear or where it will be available first. Tesla’s Zoom app will use the rearview mirror-mounted camera, opening its view to users for the first time. Owners can sync their Tesla calendar with a Zoom calendar and access meetings directly from the car.

    If you drive a car you do not need video, so phone call is enough.

      If I’m on a Bluetooth call in the car, I’m constantly having to ask the caller to repeat their last sentence. I wonder why?! 😁

    Great; something to do while waiting 45 minutes for your Tesla to charge, or waiting for a charging station to open up.


    How about a window blackout feature so we can watch porn? Or have porn in one window and the Zoom call next to it in another window?

    I am going to assume it is similar to the Teams app in the car...no video. I did that once in a meeting I only had to listen in on when a wreck had me stuck coming back from lunch. Not something I would want to do regularly (or if I wasn't stopped).

    Super distraction. Tesla first needs to get FSD working 100% and that will be a (long) while yet.
