Tesla rereleased its version 9 software update in September 2018.
It was Tesla’s first full software revision in years, and however now it sounds just like the automaker goes to launch its subsequent complete number revision, model 10, a lot quicker.
Musk has been speaking about it since earlier than releasing version 9 last year, and he mentioned that a streaming feature and car karaoke are going to be a part of the replace, however, he never stated when Tesla deliberate to launch it.
Considering Tesla beforehand took several years earlier than releasing new full revisions, it wasn’t anticipated to be any time soon.
Nonetheless, the CEO mentioned yesterday that the new video streaming capability could come as soon as next month and he later confirmed that it would likely be a part of Tesla’s version 10 software program, together with a lot of new options.
Last year, Tesla started introducing a new paid ‘premium connectivity’ package to support in-car internet features of its growing fleet.
The CEO additionally confirmed that V10 goes to incorporate the flexibility to learn and ship textual content messages through voice management:
The CEO can be now linking the discharge of beforehand introduced Autopilot and FSD options to the discharge V10 software, like Enhanced Summon.
Musk says that Tesla is aiming for a full release in August. Tesla already began testing a few of these options in its new entry fleet.
It seems like an attention-grabbing lineup of new options coming sooner than anticipated.
However, I wouldn’t maintain my breath for August since Tesla has been persistently late on main software program replace releases. September and even October, across the time that Tesla launched v9 last year, is much more likely.
We have been already promised and have been anticipating the Autopilot options; however, among the new infotainment options are coming as enjoyable surprises.
Usually, Tesla’s full software revisions include UI revamps, but there’s no point out of that this time. It feels like Tesla considers that they’re bundling sufficient new options on this replace that its price a quantity bump.
As typical, it exhibits one in every of Tesla’s most significant advantages over most different automakers: the power to considerably enhance the possession experience even a long time after supply utilizing software program updates.
Although there are limits to it, a few of these new options are solely going to launched to automobiles with a more modern media unit (MCU) – through Elon stated that owners could improve their MCU.
That’s something that individuals have had difficulties having done as a retrofit at service facilities except their original MCU was damaged.
