Elon Musk Tesla has released its much expected holiday update, and the major feature seems to be a Boombox mode that pumps media outside as long as you have the most recent EV with a pedestrian speaker system, like later Model 3 production currently runs, according to Electrek.
That means those who have Tesla could soon broadcast their taste in music to the world.
Now we’re telling Tesla users, you aren’t expected to be using this feature for parties, at least not during the pandemic, that’s not why Musk did it, please check your local laws before local authorities tap your back. Although it’s more efficient not to mention safer than pushing up the normal volume and leaving a window open.
What’s more? Elon Musk also said users can customize the horn sound on these newer cars to something beyond the usual honk, at least to a choice sound.
Other features include a smarter Scheduled Departure that preconditions the battery and cabin without plugging in, larger driving visualizations helpful for Autopilot, and at-a-glance views of the number of open stalls at Superchargers.
Elon Musk also noted that the update isn’t quite as fire if you have a Tesla vehicle without the pedestrian speaker, and many don’t have it for now. There’s “more stuff coming” that Tesla couldn’t finish, Musk hinted, Still, you might appreciate the addition if party mood in your car is what you have been looking for.
… but in saying that, @elonmusk referred to this update as “🔥🔥”. To be honest, from seeing release notes and videos, i’d rate it 1/2 a 🔥.
