Last week, Electrek reported that Tesla’s annual holiday software update gives users the ability to swipe through TikTok while the car is in park, in addition to adding new games, including Sudoku and the original version of Sonic the Hedgehog, to the car’s arcade.
Now, the company has announced that its software update also includes the capability to turn Tesla vehicles into a megaphone. According to Electrek, the megaphone function is an add-on to the existing Boombox feature introduced last year.
“Our new Boombox Megaphone allows you to project your voice via your car’s external speaker — perfect for announcing to your friends when it’s time to load up and head out!” the company wrote in a blog post.
Check out the feature in action below:

Other annual software updates are more practical than fun. Tesla has unveiled a previously requested feature that shows a live camera feed of the car’s blind spots. In addition, owners now have the ability to precondition the car cabin from the Tesla app even when the car’s battery is low.
