    Elon tweeted about it. Back in 2010-2012 when they were building the Model S, streaming music to a car over 4G wasn't that big a thing, and Slacker was really the only option available to them, Spotify wasn't. They entered a long term contract which is why they can't offer Spotify in the US currently. The only way to get Spotify in the US is to have someone root and hack your car to enable it, and even when it's enabled in the U.S. the next firmware update wipes it back out again. I have it on my car now... until the next firmware update then I have to have it re-enabled. Also, you have to use your own Spotify login, you can't use the generic Tesla one.

    It's much much more than just a cable.

    If so, that's great, and Tesla finally got out of their Slacker contract.

    I'm assuming the Tesla US workaround with the Slacker contract topic is a "BYOA - Bring Your Own Account" approach with Spotify:

    Discover Software Version 10.0

    The Slacker piece doesn't go away. Spotify is just made available to those with their own Premium Account to use it.

    Using this forum as a “source” is like using Facebook for your political news. I think your theory has many holes.

    Doesn't seem like there's any confirmed information other than Spotify is included in mcu 1 based on the fact that's available in Europe on mcu1.

    That may be true but you'll be hard pressed to find someone more informed on Tesla options and functionality then @HankLloydRight

    To be frank, for Spotify, I was operating on information from yesterday before Spotify was officially announced for V10 this afternoon, which I just found out tonight. I've actually been offline all day in the hospital with my mother, so sue me if I missed some information posted 6 hours ago.

    My "No Spotify" comment wasn't about MCU1 or MCU2, it was just that up until TODAY, Spotify wasn't available IN THE U.S. for ANY MCU unless you could root and hack your car. That's obviously changed. I've had Spotify on my MCU1 car for a while now, so obviously I know MCU1 can support Spotify.

    Additional little bits of info via Tesla's blog post that has some non-US mentions to features:

    Introducing Software Version 10.0

    But as for the thread topic... no direct mentions of MCU1.

    I hope your mother is ok. You still think MCU1 won’t have video support? Just don’t see why that would be the case given the specs of the unit.

    For that I rely on credible information from other TMC forum members... there are at least two threads where this was confirmed by smarter people than me. They certainly could be wrong, which means so would I. But I doubt that.

    Rumor is that it’s using the chromium browser for the interface, which is MCU2-only. But that’s just a rumor at this point, afaik.

    It’s been stated you need the new browser for the video and MCU 1 doesn’t get that (Chromium). I think we are definitely not getting the video apps.

    A MCU 1 example is needed, of course. Hope 10 comes soon to more than one person. :D

    Mcu1 does not have theatre mode. It does have Spotify.

    Think I can stop checking my network to see if my car is connected to Wi-Fi and stop checking my phone for Tesla SW Update notices... for about a week. Sigh... ;)

    I'm more pissed about not having vent mode...3 and X only. I have no interest in watching movies on my car screen. I've got a tv and a family to talk with if I'm charging on a trip.

    If it makes you feel any better, I have FSD, I'm set to advanced - and the car insists that it's up to date on 2019.32.2.1. So we're all still waiting for now...
