As we reported last week, the backend of the service, internally called ‘TTunes’, was found in the car’s software by friend of the site and Tesla tinkerer Green, who has root access to his Model S’ software. While we highlighted that ‘TTunes’ was likely just a placeholder name, some media outlets reported it as its official name and Musk specified that ‘TTunes’ is just “a joke”: "Tesla does not really have 'TTunes'. That's a joke. - Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 26, 2017". After that, Tesla quickly updated any consumer-facing reference to ‘TTunes’ in the software and replaced it with just ‘Music’. Interestingly, Green also found that they have updated the app with a new working UI to browse stations, artists and albums. The service is still not online and attempting to play a song crashes the service, but Green shared the first look at the user interface.
Looks like Tesla might be getting close to releasing their own streaming music service.
