Tesla drivers got a Thursday gift from the company – a software update that lets drivers watch Netflix, YouTube or Hulu while parked and Spotify while driving.
The update, version 10.0, will be rolling out via an over-the-air update this week.
After much waiting, Tesla owners will finally get to jam to their tunes on Spotify with premium account access. This comes in addition to previously available Slacker Radio and TuneIn.
Tesla had announced in July that streaming video was coming to the consoles at the center of the car. The big touchscreen that houses all of the car’s controls begged to have media on it. And now, when parked, drivers and riders can connect to their Netflix, YouTube and Hulu or Hulu + Live TV accounts.
Beyond the entertainment, Tesla is also adding how-to videos on car usage, navigation features called “I’m Feeling Lucky” and “I’m Feeling Hungry” to help find local restaurants and city landmarks and says its improved mapping features can be sorted based on distance to each destination.
