In its “biggest ever” software update, Tesla has announced the release of Software Version 10.0 for the Model S, Model X, and Model 3. The update equips Tesla owners around the world with new entertainment, gaming, music, as well as convenience features.
Waking up to Version 10.0 this week via an over-the-air update, Tesla drivers will be able to view content from Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu or Hulu + Live TV from the dash console while their car is parked.
If you happen to be in China, the electric car maker will let you access your iQiyi and Tencent Video. Tesla also has plans to add more global streaming and entertainment services down the line. Additionally, all customers will have access to Tesla tutorial videos to learn more about their vehicle.
Smart Summon is another interesting feature which can make your car come to you in a parking lot when you have the enhanced autopilot or full self-driving option. For this feature to work, the car should be within your line of sight only. Tesla believes it is a perfect feature for those with an overflowing shopping cart, or with a fussy child. However, the electric car maker wants Tesla owners to “remain responsible for the car and monitor it and its surroundings at all times.”
To benefit from the advanced media features in Software Version 10.0, Tesla has also enabled browser access on all Model 3 Standard Range Plus and Standard Range vehicles. The update will also enable streaming media access to Spotify, TuneIn, and Slacker while connected to WiFi for these cars.
