True to its (latest) word, Tesla released the “Button” late Friday/early Saturday, though it went from “opting into Full Self Driving Beta” to “requesting access to Full Self Driving.” The caveats don’t stop there.
I’m tempted to go on a riff about how Tesla always, always announces something awesome, then walks it back a ton and delivers it way late. The button is no exception, but we all know where we stand with the company at this point.
So instead of the promised “opt into Full Self Driving Beta” that we were lead to believe we were getting in April June, we got the updated “Beta button will request permission to assess driving behavior using Tesla insurance calculator. If driving behavior is good for 7 days, beta access will be granted.”
Button timing of May is aspirational. Depends on how well limited beta of V9.0 goes, but I would be surprised if wide beta (aka button) is later than June. FSD subscription next month is a sure thing.
