Zoom says its app is coming to “all new Tesla models soon.”
Little else is known about the video chatting app on wheels, but the video suggests the in-cabin camera (mounted above the rearview mirror) will be used, and then the main screen will display who you’re meeting with.
This is exciting since the Tesla’s in-car camera hasn’t been used for anything beyond ensuring drivers keep their hands on the wheel during auto-pilot driving. The camera angle in the demo footage doesn’t look like it’s coming from this camera, however.
To me, it appears much too low-angled, so it will be interesting to see what quality it actually records in when it rolls out.
Regardless, using the car’s in-built microphones is likely not a bad way to make a digital call.
