Parking at a commercial charging station doesn't disrupt your work routine anymore
How often did you run late to Zoom meeting calls with only 15% of your Tesla battery? Well, it's not going to happen anymore. Tesla and Zoom recently announced their new partnership. It's unclear when the updates will be available in Tesla electric cars, but it already sounds exciting!
You can forget long waiting times at public electric charging stations searching for Starbucks with a good internet connection. It's time to abandon the habit of driving while using our phones and focus on road safety instead. Business and Zoom car meetings are becoming real for Tesla owners, but only in parking mode.
Tesla knows how to take its users' experience to another level. It constantly upgrades its infotainment system. Tesla drives can watch video streaming from YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Twitch, etc., play games, use internet radio and music streaming, benefit from 3D rendering support, 5G Wi-Fi network, and many more.
Lucky for Tesla owners, they don't have to find ways of entertainment or places with strong coffee and steady Wi-Fi connection to kill time during charging. Adding Zoom meetings is another exciting upgrade for all people who don't have extra time to spare at commercial electric car charging stations.
When Tesla and Zoom announced their app upgrade launch, they presented a test preview of this feature. Zoom plans to use the car's hardware and software for smooth video conferences. If a person wants to make a call, the video will connect with the in-car camera from the rearview mirror. The app will connect to Tesla's calendar app and send notifications and reminders like the regular Zoom app on phones and computers.
Now all Tesla drivers can be at ease about remembering their business call appointments. If they need to use a commercial charging station to top off their car's battery simultaneously, they can do that without issues while charging their Tesla and connecting the Zoom app.
This is the first public concern that appeared on social media after Zoom and Tesla's presentation. Tesla's self-driving option and other features have aroused countless speculations about road safety. As it turns out, drivers can only receive and make Zoom calls when parked. Although driving and taking calls sound convenient, it's unsafe, and the car's app will block the call to avoid the driver's distraction.
The option to make Zoom calls and use a commercial charging station will persuade drivers to park instead of being distracted on the road. This method will help avoid accidents and improve safety issues among drivers.
We may debate the approaches Elon Musk uses in business, but we can't deny their success. Whenever a Tesla driver comments about a problem, Elon Musk hears it and starts working on providing a solution. Soon, every multitasking businessman, businesswoman, parent, teenager, and anyone owning a Tesla will have an easier life with upgraded Zoom features.
With so many EVs driving around, we are happy to welcome app developments integrated into our EVs - especially considering that we spend 4.3 years of our lives in cars! It's time to become time-efficient and use this charging time for important things. We are waiting for updates from Tesla and hope those other EV manufacturers will also catch up with all developments.
