Tesla’s next major over-the-air (OTA) software update version 2024.26 has reportedly been released to the company’s employees for early testing of the features.

This new update brings a ton of new features for Tesla owners to enjoy. After the Spring Update (2024.14), 2024.26 is the 2nd major feature-packed software update Tesla is preparing to roll out to its global fleet of cars. Some features are unavailable in some regions because of relevancy and regulatory issues.

The most interesting and entertaining features Tesla has introduced in the 2024.26 update is the addition of the YouTube Music and Amazon Music apps. Both of these music streaming services offer more than 100 million songs and music tracks to their audience. As a premium YouTube Music subscriber, I can relate to the joy of Tesla owners who were anxiously waiting for this app to be available to them during their road trips.

Considering the number of new and enhanced features in the 2024.26 update, Tesla owners are suggesting for it to be called the “Summer Update”.

Another interesting feature added in the 2024.26 update is the ability to get weather updates in the area where the Tesla is currently driving. In addition to the local weather and outside temperature, Tesla owner will now be able to check the air quality index (AQI) of the area they’re driving in (details in release notes below).

Tesla has also redesigned the Climate panel UI that eases the use of settings.

Tesla has also updated its navigation maps in the upcoming software update version 2024.26. Tesla vehicle drivers will be able to select a sub-destination of their main destination like a specific terminal at a Supercharger.

Tesla has also upgraded the Zoom meeting app in the 2024.26 update. Now the Zoom meetings will be full screen by default while the vehicle is in Park.

Tesla reduced HVAC cabin noise in the 2024.20 update. The automaker took this function a little further in the upcoming 2024.26 update. Tesla fan speed will automatically lower itself during a phone call to reduce ambient noise.

One of the most useful features in the 2024.26 update is Parental Controls. Now parents can set the max speed and drive mode to Chill. Parental Controls also allow customizing the critical safety modes for drivers their parents consider needing additional safety measures (details below).

One of the best advantages of owning a Tesla vehicle is that it keeps improving with free OTA software updates. Tesla is always able to add new and tweak existing features to its entire global fleet of more than 5 million vehicles.
