The electric automaker Tesla started installing AMD Ryzen processors in its infotainment system in 2021. The infotainment system is powerful enough to power video games because of the new hardware that was introduced with the modes S and X facelift. In the meantime, it’s not possible to start the game while driving, which was actually only intended for passengers, you’ll be able to play only while stationary – as an example during a loading break.

For the Chinese New Year, Tesla is now offering the official Tesla Mic, which is a set consisting of two microphones for the equivalent of almost 190 dollars. In addition to the new microphone, the electric car manufacturer has also released software version 2022.2.1, which brings support for the new karaoke game with microphones. By the way, conventional karaoke microphones are already available on Amazon for 60 dollars.

What does the new software version 2022.2.1 offer for Tesla owners?

With the Tesla Mic, you can play karaoke in the Tesla. According to the manufacturer, the wireless microphones should automatically connect to the infotainment system. Singing songs is still popular in Asia. There are more than 50,000 karaoke bars in China alone. In addition to the new accessories for Tesla owners, the company also introduced the 2022.2.1 software version in China.

Tesla owners can start optimizing navigation with the new software. Here, more online information about traffic disruptions is displayed and an alternative route can be selected, for example. You can also change the color of the vehicle displayed virtually in the Tesla app. The new software and microphones are still only available in China, but you can order them via Amazon. As usual, Tesla drivers will receive the new software as a free over-the-air update. If you want to use things like the karaoke game, live traffic data and a web browser in your Tesla via the built-in eSIM card, you need the premium connectivity package, which costs just under 10 dollars a month after vehicle registration.

In other news, the most important product during this year and the next period will not be only cars – it will be the software that drives them. According to Elon Musk, one of the richest people on the planet, this refers primarily to self-management technology, and then to humanoid robots, which will primarily help in factories for building self-driving cars.
