Tesla Rolling Out its Biggest Update with Various Entertainment Integrations
Tesla announced that it has begun rolling out the version 10 of its in-car software. The update is rolling out for Model S, Model X, and Model 3 owners. According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, those who paid for the full self-driving option on their car are higher up on the priority list, with a wider release coming in about a week from this build.
Tesla says 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. The new version contains a lot of new entertainment options including Spotify Premium, Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu (with live TV). The video services can only be viewed when a vehicle is parked, but Spotify integration will work all the time.
The other new fun factor features 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. The first level of Cuphead has also 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”). Tesla has also rebranded its car summon feature as “Smart Summon” and added new functionality.
