Updated October 19, 2018 09:15:15Tesla is adding a new feature to the Tesla Home and its Drive app for those who have yet to purchase a Tesla Model S. In the new version, users can tap the “Play” button on the Home screen and the app will send a notification that an update has been downloaded to their home.
The new version of the Tesla app also has some new functionality.
For one, the app now displays the current location of the user, rather than the location of their home, and includes a new “Location” section.
This new section is intended to show users where they can find nearby Teslas.
Also in the new Tesla app, Tesla will now show a notification whenever an update is downloaded to the home.
This notification will appear on the left side of the screen, and a green bar will appear around it to indicate the update is downloading.
The update comes as the company is preparing to release a $5,000 Tesla X Model 3 in 2019.
