Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta continues to improve, impressing owners with even more functionality. Tesla Autopilot team is actively working to improve self-driving capability, to give more and more customers access to FSD Beta. According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, if the new release passes successful testing, Tesla will begin rolling it out more broadly.
Musk tweeted that there will be a special release next week. According to his description, the new update will have many fundamental improvements. In addition, important bugs identified during beta testing will be fixed and new functionality will be added.
In the meantime, Tesla owners in both the US and worldwide are awaiting the deployment of FSD Beta to gain access to the most advanced self-driving features. However, for now, only US owners have access. Musk previously mentioned that the first countries after the US to deploy the early beta will be Canada and Norway.

In parallel with Musk's announcement, Tesla continues to roll out FSD Beta in various US states. As of today, we know that testers are located in twelve states: California, Arizona, Hawaii, Oregon, Wisconsin, Virginia, Rhode Island, Connecticut, North Carolina, Florida, Michigan, and Illinois. @28delayslater/Twitter has mapped FSD Beta’s state distribution according to testers who contacted him.
Musk also wrote that if the release presented next week looks good, then Tesla will extend access to the beta version for even more owners. This means that more Tesla owners in the U.S. will have access to early testing—ultimately providing even more data to further train FSD Beta.
