Tesla Music App in V11 Contains New 'Up Next' Feature

By Nuno Cristovao

This holiday season Tesla delivered a massive holiday update that included a UI overhaul.

This update introduces a cleaner UI that rearranges a lot of the buttons, and options we're used to.

It also included new features such as the ability to customize the launcher bar.

Although there were a lot of UI changes, most of the apps themselves remained mostly the same. For example, the energy graph, dashcam viewer, phone app, and browser apps all behave almost exactly as before.

However, there is a new feature in the music app that is quite useful. The music app now only features two open states, as opposed to the three states in the previous version.

You can now, however, choose what the smaller state of the app looks like. In one option you have the small, thin player that only includes the main buttons such as skip, play, favorite, etc. Very similar to what we had in v10.

However, if you tap on the third button from the right in the music app, you'll now have a slightly larger player that includes some additional information.

The information displayed will include favorites, music sources, and one new option, the ability to view which songs will be played next.

If you're listening to a playlist from one of built in music sources or even listening to music over Bluetooth, you'll be treated to this new 'Up Next' list.

Not only does the list allow you to view which songs are coming up next, but it also gives you quick access to skip to one of the upcoming songs.

This UI update offers a cleaner look and more logical menus, however, there are also some choices that Tesla may revisit.

As with any major release, there will be refinements along the way, but it's great to see Tesla add some additional functionality with this 'Up Next' feature as well.

Watch Elon talk about the future of Tesla on today's earnings call

By Nuno Cristovao

Tesla is set to report its fourth-quarter earnings after the market closes today. The call is scheduled to begin at 2:30pm PT.

This event is going to be an exciting one for several reasons. Elon Musk is scheduled to be on this earnings call. Elon has recently stopped attending earnings calls regularly to help free up some of this time.

The fact that Elon has decided to attend this call could mean that Tesla is going to make a major announcement.

Tesla has also said that they will be revealing their future roadmap during today's earnings call.

There has been a lot of speculation about when the Cybertruck will start production and what the final version of the Cybertruck will look like.

Just a few days ago there were photos and videos of the latest Cybertruck prototype that showed off the truck's windshield wiper, side-view mirrors, and the lack of door handles.

At the very least, we expect Tesla to provide a more concrete timeline for the Cybertruck, the Tesla Semi, and maybe even mention the Tesla Roadster 2.0.

I would not expect Tesla to unveil any major new products at this event since Tesla typically holds a separate event for those occasions, but we expect there will still be a lot to talk about after this call.
