Probably the biggest part of the update so far is the addition of a new game to the newly redesigned Toybox. Fallout Shelter, which we learned last year near the release of Cuphead was eventually coming to Tesla vehicles, is a popular mobile simulation video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios.

If you have any musical ability (unlike me), you’ll probably enjoy this update to Trax, Tesla’s in-car music studio app. The latest version will include a ‘piano roll view’ (anyone know what that means?). You can also do some manipulation of the notes by pressing and holding down on them.

We have added a piano roll view that allows you to edit and fine tune notes in a track. You can now tap in view to create a note, move or resize it by dragging the tail end of a note, and delete it with a long press. To play a note sound, simply hold and move…
