Everyone sing along. “Caraoke” is now an option in Tesla vehicles.
On Thursday, the latest over-the-air software update, known as Version 10, started rolling out to Tesla owners. The update packs in a lot of fun features, mostly for when the car is parked or charging.
In an update promised by Elon Musk earlier this year, Tesla cars can stream Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu if they’re connected to WiFi. They also finally have Spotify integration.
Games like Cuphead are coming to the Tesla Arcade and a new “Tesla Theater” application houses all the streaming video options. Caraoke is like it sounds: a karaoke interface with lyrics on the screen so you can belt out your favorite tunes.
A Summon update will let you “summon” your car from a parking spot if it’s in your line of sight. This is only available for drivers who have the Full Self-Driving version or Enhanced Autopilot package.
Other updates will streamline Sentry mode, and the new mysteriously named “Joe mode” lets you lower the volume for parking chimes and other alerts if you have a sleeping baby in the car.
The mobile Tesla app that lets you control the climate, unlock the car, and other options was also updated and now you’ll be able to remote-control windows on the Model 3 and Model X from the app.
The software update rollout is first coming to drivers with “Full Self-Driving” capable cars. Other drivers should start to see it in about a week.
