San Francisco. Electric car company Tesla has released official application programming interface (API) documentation to support third-party apps.
As Electrek reports, at the moment the API only covers commands you can send to your car through the Tesla app, and it can ping data going from your car to the app.
This change is going to make all third-party fleet management apps and smartwatch integration apps, etc. official.
The Elon Musk-run company has previously talked about a software development kit (SDK) to build a full third-party app ecosystem for its vehicles.
The automaker has now officially released the API documentation, which is an important step towards building a third-party app community around their cars.
According to Tesla, “All third-party apps will have to go through the new API starting next year.”
“Starting in 2024, most vehicles will be required to send commands through the Tesla Vehicle Command SDK,” it says.
In August, Tesla’s app gained support for automation with Apple Shortcuts.
According to reports, Tesla car owners with an iPhone can use Siri to activate Apple Shortcuts automation without using third-party apps like Tesla.
Meanwhile, Tesla produced 430,488 vehicles in the third quarter of 2023, down 10 percent from the previous quarter.
In the third quarter, the company produced more than 430,000 vehicles and delivered more than 435,000 vehicles.
The company delivered 435,059 vehicles in the third quarter, down 6.6 percent from the previous quarter but up 26.5 percent year over year.
Tesla will officially report its third-quarter earnings on October 18.
