New Tesla software hints that Elon Musk may be working on a music-streaming service

It seems like Elon Musk always has something new up his sleeve, and if clues hiding in Tesla’s latest software update are any indication, Musk could be breaking into the music-streaming industry in the future.

According to transportation and energy site Electrek, Tesla’s new update includes backend information for a new music streaming platform titled “TTunes.” The addition was first spotted by a Tesla tinkerer who goes by the name “Green,” who then shared the info with the publication.

However, while Tesla vehicle owners can see a label for TTunes in their media app, there’s nothing actually available (yet) in terms of a program people can actually use. Instead, when users click into TTunes, they are greeted by a note that reads, “Unable to reach TTunes. Try again later.”

Still, it’s another signal that Tesla is working on a music streaming program. 

When asked about TTunes, a spokesperson for Tesla referred Mashable to a statement released a few months ago:

“We believe it’s important to have an exceptional in-car experience so our customers can listen to the music they want from whatever source they choose,” they said. “Our goal is to simply achieve maximum happiness for our customers.”

Additionally, Musk previously hinted at a Tesla music-streaming service in June during a shareholders meeting, TechCrunch reported. 

Who knows, maybe a music-streaming service from Musk may not be too far off.
