In this new car era that lauds hybrid and
electric vehicles, technology updates are necessary for a company to stay competitive.
Teslain particular releases many software updates, but most of them aren’t newsworthy. But look! The 2021.24 Tesla update is here, and it looks like their fleet is upping in value.
Disney+ is now available in your Tesla
Tesla is a big household name. So is Disney. This integration makes a lot of sense, even if you might not have seen it coming.
Electrek, the most notable update is probably Tesla’s addition of Disney+ to their in-car streaming service, the Tesla Theater app.
Prior to this update, Tesla Theater already had Netflix and YouTube, which are two of the most popular video streaming platforms.
Of course, for Tesla fans who are not Disney fans, this might not be the most exciting news. Fortunately, there are many other software updates on the way too.
Tesla’s new car wash mode makes a lot of sense
Car washes are great and sometimes necessary for car maintenance.
This update brings a super convenient ‘Car Wash Mode’! With just a few finger taps, the Tesla will disable all windshield wipers, lock the charge port, and more.
It also includes a safe Free Roll option in case you’re prepping the Tesla for an automatic car wash with a conveyor belt.
Teslas previously had permanently auto-dimming mirrors, which was frustrating for owners who didn’t like that.
The highly requested feature of being able to disable this feature if you want now exists.
You used to have to press a particular icon if you wanted to record anything with your Tesla dashcam.
Now, Teslas have the option of recording automatically when they detect a "safety event" (like an accident or airbag deployment).
This function makes so much sense and we’re glad it’s here. As you can imagine, if your airbag is deployed or there’s an accident, it’s not very convenient to manually activate a dashcam.
Stay connected to Wi-Fi while driving
If you've ever wanted to use your hotspots for connectivity, rejoice!
Teslas can now use hotspots while driving. All you have to do is enable _Remain Connected in Drive _in the Wi-Fi settings.
Range display and language choices
You can now switch between battery percentage and distance units by simply tapping the range display. This is not a groundbreaking update, but comfort and preference options are always nice and add up in the long run.
Hungarian, Romanian, and Russian have also been added as language options.
Save on car insurance for your Tesla
Are you dissatisfied with your current insurance carrier? Is it expensive and making you wonder if it’s actually the best option, but it’s also too much of a hassle to switch?
