Tesla’s new Full Self-Driving Beta software

What? I thought Tesla already had Self-Driving features!

It kinda did. Their Auto-Pilot feature will let you change lanes on highways and freeways and also accelerate to a certain speed and brake when necessary. But their new fully Self-Driving feature will let you do all that on normal city roads.
Not just that, it also has a new feature dubbed Point A-to-B Full Drive. Which as the name suggests will take you from your starting point to your destination by itself, with minimum intervention. The Nag timer is still there, where the car will remind you to keep your hands on the steering wheel in frequent intervals.

Oh damn, that sounds dope! But why didn’t I get this update?

The full Self-Driving update is released to the public in a closed beta program. Meaning only a selected few, chosen by Tesla will get the update. There are multiple people who have posted videos on social media testing out the beta software. And it looks amazing already. Elon Musk said in a tweet, “This will, at first, be limited to a small number of people who are expert and careful drivers”. Now I’m sure that the process for choosing the candidates was much more complex than what Elon made it to be, but if you want to be one of the lucky few who get to test the latest features before the masses, you gotta up your driving game!

Yeah Yeah I Saw the Video, Why Does it Look so Janky?

That’s because it is janky, the UI has a lot of blinking lights and plain boxes instead of cars displaying on the screen. But remember this is the beta version of the software, Tesla is entirely focused on getting the self-driving feature to work smoothly before fixing the UI elements. The final software that the masses will receive will look and feel a lot more refined… hopefully.
