A new Tesla app update appears to have outed a new feature that would allow people to share their cars with other people ahead of a rumored Tesla Network ride-sharing system.
Rumors of a Tesla Network have been around for a while, with CEO Elon Musk having previously said that the Model 3 and Model Y were built with the idea of self-driving and ride-sharing in mind.
According to a tweet today, version 4.3.1 of the Tesla app includes references to three things that are important:
- Sharing your Tesla vehicle with others
- Asset for vehicle sharing
- Endpoints related to vehicle sharing
All of this would obviously be much more useful if and when full self-driving capabilities are unlocked for all and with wider capabilities. The idea could be that people would allow their personal car to be hailed as a taxi of sorts, potentially earning them money rather than sitting unused in a garage.
Version 4.3.1 has been released here's what we've found:
-Sharing your Tesla vehicle with others
-Asset for vehicle sharing
-Endpoints related to vehicle sharing
That's about it in this update, if we find anything else we will add to this thread! Have a great night! pic.twitter.com/xkR7Qluk5z

As great as that sounds, it’s some way off being a viable reality for Tesla right now. But this new app update does suggest that the pieces are being put in place for when the big switch can be flipped.
