Tesla has released a new software update in China that includes the TikTok app integration as well as a few more features.
Tesla New Year Update
Tesla has a tradition of releasing new software updates for the holiday season, which the automaker did again in most markets in December.
Now it follows a holiday update in China for the new year of the ox.
Tesla wrote on his official Weibo account (translated from Chinese):
“New Year of the Ox” OTA air upgrade brings a different entertainment experience in the new year [cool] Douyin (TikTok) has officially landed on Tesla vehicles, QQ music lyrics display function, voice recognition optimization function … More surprises are waiting for you to discover the new year, something different. “
The biggest new feature is the integration of TikTok, which is called “Douyin” in China.
Tesla released a video showing the new software update, including the TikTok integration:
The automaker is also updating its QQ Music app, which is the main music app in its vehicles in China, such as Spotify in the US.
With the new update, Tesla displays song lyrics better.
Tesla has also made some improvements to its voice commands in Chinese, including new commands.
These new features are being pushed through the 2021.4.5 software update in China.
For now, the features are only available in China, but Tesla has been known to release new features first in China and later to other markets, such as North America.
In this case, it is unclear which of these features, if any, will make Tesla vehicles in other markets.
