Tesla: Steam, Apple Music and remove flatulence for the Christmas update

As every year, Tesla offers a rather rich Christmas update.

Model 3, Y, S and X owners will start to be able to install the update that is being installed in all good American breweries.

Apple Music finally integrated natively

If he was already possible to use Apple Music in your Tesla, you had to go via Bluetooth until then of the iPhone, with rather complicated song search in the absence of CarPlay. Also, the sound quality is not really ideal with this wireless connection that offers little speed.

Tim Cook and Elon Musk have become friends again since their Apple Park bromance, Apple and Tesla can finally get back to business. In this regard, it might also be time for Tesla engineers to adapt their app for the Apple Watch, which would avoid going through third-party applications with sometimes questionable security.

Apple Music is therefore available in 4G provided you have a premium connection and a subscription to the service. Spotify remains the default player – free and linked to the car. A small QR code that appears on the screen will help you sync the account.

Tesla also took the opportunity to improve media controlwhich is closer to the driver (this will displease the passenger): just swipe up to access “Recent and Favorites” and “Sources” and left or right to also access trips and information such as tire pressure – a welcome return to this practical function.

Steam finally available!

This time it’s official, Steam is finally coming to Tesla! A priori reserved for AMD chips, given the quality of the games.

Another news, a new mode allows power the indoor camera from the mobile application (after configuring the thing in the menus Control, security). This makes it possible, for example, to monitor children pets when dog mode is activated (for children, prefer camping mode, which allows you to watch Netflix – even if it is specified that it is not recommended to leave your children in a vehicle unattended)

Finally, a few minor improvements here and there, such as option to vary the ventilation level while keeping the setting automatica confirmation message to confirm the transfer of a call to the car or the search for contacts via Bluetooth.

The car can haggle from a distance

Now that we are done detailing the respectable features, let’s move on to the fun little additions. For example, the mobile application will be able to remotely blow up the car – a function previously reserved for the driver’s presence in the cabin.

So does Tesla enhanced the famous festive animation with sound and lights : it will be possible to program it 10 minutes in advance or to create a scenography with several people.
