Tesla Holiday 2021.44.25 Update Adds TikTok, Sonic The Hedgehog, Lightshow Support, And Much More
Tesla has begun the rollout of its big holiday software update, adding support for new features and tweaking existing ones. One new feature that will be of note is support for TikTok, with the new app found in the Tesla Theater.
The 2021 holiday update (version 2021.44.25) is now rolling out, with a raft of changes that include a new dark mode display that can be changed within the touchscreen’s display settings.
Drivers can now also have their blind spot camera appear automatically, too.
You can now automatically see a live camera view of your blind spot whenever you activate the turn signal. To enable, tap Controls > Autopilot > Automatic Blind Spot Camera
TikTok is undoubtedly a big addition, with Tesla saying that drivers will only be able to watch content when the car is parked.
You can now watch TikTok from your touchscreen. To launch, tap the Theater icon from the bottom bar and select TikTok while your car is in park.
Other notable improvements include the addition of Sonic The Hedgehog, allowing Tesla owners to play the classic Sega Genesis game while sat in their car.
Perhaps more importantly, Tesla says it’s simplified the controls to “focus on navigation” as well.
The display has been simplified to focus on navigation, media and the most common primary controls.
For windshield wipers and status bar information, tap Controls
For charging controls tap Controls > Charging
For trip and odometer information tap Controls > Trips
For tire pressure information tap Controls > Service
Note: Activating the windshield wipers via the stalk will continue to display the wiper card.
A full list of all of the new changes and interface improvements can be found on Reddit, while those who have yet to see the update arrive on their cars will just have to sit tight. It’ll arrive in due course.
