Tesla (TSLA) keeps improving car features and the screen interface via over-the-air (OTA) software updates.
One simple and exciting feature is the dual arrow icon on the bottom right of the Tesla Model S and Model X screens. With a single tap, this icon helps switch the on-screen media player’s horizontal position.
This dual arrow sign acts as a toggle switch. Tap once, the media player slides to the right, tap again and it moves back to the left (default).
Navigation maps are at the base layer or the backdrop of a Tesla screen. Everything else is displayed above the maps and the media player is no exception.
This feature is not available on Tesla Model Y and Model 3 screens. Perhaps, due to the smaller size of the screens on these entry-level Teslas. The software team did not find enough screen real estate to accommodate this UI function.
