The Google Home had the long awaited (at least by me!) UK release last week, and I was delighted to get my hands on one of the first. Since then I’ve gradually been linking it to more and more devices around my home (more blog posts on that subject to follow), but having played around with the Tesla API recently, I only had one integration on my mind! Sadly there’s nothing official that allows you to talk to your Tesla Model S or X through Google Home – although I hope something will be released in future – so I took it on myself to build something that would allow some basic back-and-forth conversations with my car.
While I’m continuing to work on the project, it’s now at the stage where hopefully others can expand and improve on it, so I’ve written up all the details on the TeslaVoice project page, and uploaded the associated files to GitHub.
