Tesla has released a new software update in China that includes the integration of the TikTok app integration as well as some other functions.
Tesla New Years Update
Tesla has a tradition of releasing new software updates for the holidays, which the automaker repeated in most markets in December.
Now comes a holiday update for the New Year of the Ox in China.
Tesla wrote on its official Weibo account (translated from Chinese):
The OTA air upgrade “New Year of the Ox” offers a different entertainment experience in the New Year [cool] Douyin (TikTok) has officially landed on Tesla vehicles. The QQ function for displaying music texts and optimizing the speech recognition function are waiting for you.
The biggest new feature is the integration of TikTok, which in China is known as “Douyin”.
Tesla has 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, like Spotify in the US.
With the new update, Tesla shows the texts better.
Tesla has also made some improvements to its Chinese voice commands, including new commands.
These new features will be rolled out in China with the 2021.4.5 software update.
The functions are currently only available in China. However, Tesla is known to release new features first in China and later to bring it to other markets such as North America.
In this case, it is unclear which of these features, if any, will make it to Tesla vehicles in other markets.
