After much waiting, Tesla will finally release cloud stored profiles in its next software update (2022.24).
The feature, officially called Testa Profiles, was promised by Elon Musk in 2017 and has been offered for some time by competitors.
Mercedes-Benz is one of the companies that has offered since 2018 the registration of an account automatically
synchronized with other vehicles of the brand. The idea of the feature is to keep driver
settings saved, such as seat, steering wheel, and rearview mirror settings, for example.
Soon, the same will be able to be done in Tesla's cars. According to the notes in update 2022.24, the automaker
will offer the option to link the driver profile to a Tesla account. That way, rearview mirror and seat settings, among others, will also be synchronized with other vehicles.
Despite the delay, the feature will be especially useful if the driver has more than one
Tesla in the garage or rents cars from the automaker frequently, Autoevolution
points out, as it will save time spent adjusting everything manually.
