See your doggy from your Tesla app

This update now allows owners to see their animals inside the car with a live camera. The live feed gives owners peace of mind.

But it also helps to fix another problem some owners have experienced leaving animals in their Teslas.

Some passers-by might think the animal has been forgotten. That unfortunate assumption can result in

 Good Samaritans attempting to save it without being aware of Dog Mode. After all, it is an animal left inside with the windows up, doors locked, and no owner in sight.

To help avoid that unfortunate situation, the updated Dog Mode also displays a message on the dash screen.

It lets others know that the owner is coming back soon. It also displays the temperature inside the cabin.

Before this new addition to Dog Mode, owners would sometimes tape a sign inside one of the windows informing people that they’ll be back.
