Tesla’s new software update brings with it a new mode that allows you to see around your car thanks to multiple cameras placed around the vehicle. However, not everyone will be able to try the new feature, as only Tesla premium connection subscribers can benefit from it.

Tesla’s Sentry Mode has been tasked with notifying owners of potential threats to their cars for over two years. Now the system is getting the 2021.36.8 software update which includes a new option called “Sentry Mode Live Camera Access”. With the new feature, Tesla owners will be able to use their vehicle’s cameras to see what’s going on nearby via the mobile app. Moreover, as Elon Musk stated, it is also possible to speak through the speaker.

Drivers need a premium connection subscription priced at $10 per month to use the new feature. The feature only works in the iOS app in the first step, but it is not clear whether the Android app will get this feature.

Other features that come with Tesla’s premium connectivity subscription include live traffic visualization, in-car music/video streaming, Tesla Caraoke, internet browser, OTA software updates over Wi-Fi and cellular, and satellite view maps.
