Today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that he is writing a blog post about the details of Tesla OS software update v8.0 to be released later in the day:

But he also said that the wide release of the update will not be for “another few weeks”.

Yet, there could be some surprises in the wide release of the update considering Tesla has been keeping a few cards close to its chest.

The long-rumoured integration of Spotify in the US, after being introduced in Tesla’s European fleet earlier this year, could be one. What else do you want to see in v8.0 that we haven’t reported yet? Let us know in the comment section below.

We will be reporting on the blog post when it comes out later today.
