Tesla is introducing the ability to minimize the Theater feature with the 2022.28 Software Update, allowing drivers to access other features without completely closing the application.
Tesla Theater is one of the most useful features of the company’s electric vehicles due to its ability to provide entertainment during travel. When Teslas are supercharging on a road trip or even on the daily commute, it can last long enough that drivers have a few minutes to spare and have relatively nothing to do.
Sure, drivers can run to a supermarket and grab a coffee or snack, but there may be 20-30 minutes of charging time left. The Tesla Theater allows owners to watch YouTube, Netflix, Disney+ and other streaming services while the vehicle is not in motion. First introduced with the massive v10 software update in December 2019, it was a huge step forward in meeting drivers who had switched to electrification.

However, the feature has been refined and is still being improved by Tesla’s software developers. One of the Tesla Theater’s shortcomings is that the streaming show or movie could not be minimized to access other features. Tesla plans to change this.
According to NotATeslaApp, Tesla is introducing the ability to minimize theater with the 2022.28 software update, allowing drivers to plan their route, change vehicle settings, or turn on a heated seat, all while the movie or show you’re watching is in. a minimized orientation.
The notes for the unreleased 2022.28 software update describe the theater mode improvements:
“Full screen Theater mode can now be minimized, allowing access to vehicle controls without interrupting video playback. Tap the minimize button in the top left corner of the window to enable full screen mode.
Tesla has not yet started rolling out the new software that will allow owners to minimize the Theater. However, it is expected to be rolled out to some owners in the coming weeks.
