The Beta V9 for Full Self-Driving will be delayed another week, as per a tweet from Elon Musk. Unexpected delays continue to delay the release, but the company has not wavered from its expected Q2 release.
I’m driving “alpha” 9, but we need to fix some obvious issues before releasing beta 9, hopefully next week. FSD subscription capability should be turning on via the Tesla app.

The company is facing issues in delivering this latest version. Although the end goal is to release a feature-complete version of the FSD suite, it is not a simple task. The feature has gotten more complex and accurate over its Beta’s, and the latest reliance on Tesla Vision seems to be the next major roadblock.
On the Q1 earnings call, Musk noted that the company got rid of radar as one of the last crutches of the FSD program.
The latest update for Tesla owners came on June 6th, noting that the V9 Beta would release around June 20th. However, as we have seen, things are a little delayed.
There are no indications what the apparent problems that are being fixed. Nor is there a set release date. However, we can all hope that FSD V9 Beta might hit Teslas by the end of June!
