Tesla New software Update, which also doubles as the companys biggest update ever rolls out with the top paid-services including Spotify, Netflix, YouTube, among several others
Tesla infotainment has only gotten much betrter with the latest and bigest software update by the company. The American-based automotive and energy company company in its latest announcement revealed that the version 10 of its in-car software is now available and currently rolling out to Model S, Model X, and Model 3 owners respectively.
The company clariefied the reason why the new update is not available for all Tesla users just yet, saying that those who paid for full Self-Driving option on their car are on top of their priority list, hence will be the first set of users to enjoy the new update. While the wait for others will not take longer, the company will commence wider release in the coming week. At that, plans to add slight improvement before the time of the wider release.
Tesla in its press statement also added that this is its largest software update ever to this point and highlights all the improvements as a key advantage of buying one of the company’s cars.
About the new Software Version 10.0 — Tesla had made sure it packs a good number of interesting programs as per apps, and includes a lot of new entertainment options for Tesla drivers. Tesla drivers will now enjoy the luxury of paid-services including Spotify Premium, Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu (including with live TV).
If you are also thinking about the potential risk that comes with the various new offers, especially when considering that drivers may lose concetration while attempting to watch a series on Netflix. As a result, Tesla has made the sure that the services can only be viewed when a vehicle is parked, but Spotify integration has been a huge request among Tesla’s customers, the company says, and that obviously works all the time considering it doesn’t comes with visual option like others.
Aside from the streaming option, there are othe new features to be enjoyed by drivers of Tesla autos and some of them include “Caraoke,” which “lets you sing your heart out with friends on a road trip — or by yourself.
Caraoke comes with a massive library of music and song lyrics, with support for multiple languages.” Song lyrics are displayed in sync with the song on the Tesla’s display. And the first level of Cuphead has been added to Tesla Arcade.
Tesla is also replicating a popular Google trick: “I’m feeling lucky.” You can select this option for either food (“I’m feeling hungry”) or points of interest (“I’m feeling lucky”). “In testing, we’ve been taken to hole-in-the-wall restaurants, gourmet meals, national parks, city landmarks and more,” the company wrote in its blog post.
As for driving and core vehicle functionality, Tesla has rebranded its car summon feature as “Smart Summon” and added new functionality. Smart Summon — exclusive to Full Self-Driving and Enhanced Autopilot customers — enables a Tesla vehicle to leave a parking space and navigate around obstacles to its owner. The car must be in your line of sight for Smart Summon to work.
As for when customers can expect it, Tesla says:
To receive this update as quickly as possible, make sure your car is connected to Wi-Fi. You’ll automatically receive Version 10.0 when it’s ready for your car based on your location and vehicle configuration — there is no need to request the update.
