Introducing Software Version 10.0

We’ve been talking about V10 for a few weeks now and we had a good idea of what was coming but, apart from the highly expected addintion of YouTube, Netflix, Caraoke, Smart Summon, etc. Tesla kept a few secrets until the final release. These are some of the things in the final GA that we hadn’t heard about before:

  • Spotify: Probably one of the highests expected features for non-European Tesla owners. As a premium subscriber of Spotify for 10 years, I couldn’t be happier
  • Crack all your windows 3 inches to vent or close them. Only available for Model 3 and X
  • Model 3 SR+ and SR now get browser access as well as YouTube, Netflix, Spotify, TuneIn, and Slacker while connected to Wi-Fi

Another recent addition to Tesla’s mobile app is the «Come to me» button on the home screen of the app, right below the car. My favorite part of the feature is the visualization of what the car actually sees around it.

Optimus Prime goes through NAF test

Model X with 200,000 kilometers (12,500 milles) goes through NAF test (Automobile Association of Norway Test). It’s good to see high mileage cars going through these type of tests without any problem. Bjørn your Model X will be remembered!


Pro tip: Use Spotify family plan for more than one account

Vanessa and I share the Model S but I also use Spotify at work and when I commute, so I don’t want our Tesla to also use my account since when you start playing spotify in one device it pauses all other devices where the same account is playing. If this is your case, I would recommend that you get the family plan, it’s $14.99 for up to 6 accounts while the price of an individual premium account is $9.99.

PSA: Don't wiggle the steering wheel to stop the nag, apply force in one direction

Really good tip by wickedsight on Reddit, this is at least how I do it.


What the acronym?

As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.

  • SR - Standard Range
  • GA - General Availability

Because we 💚 Tesla

Our Model S rocks so much that we designed some sweet t-shirts to go with it. Check out all of our designs at https://shop.spreadshirt.com/tesletter
