  • This week Tesla cars will receive an update this week, which includes a "dog mode."
  • A fan tweeted at Elon Musk in October asking for a dog mode which keeps the AC on and plays music.
  • Musk said on Thursday that the update will be rolling out this week along with a new security feature "safety mode," which blasts classical music if the car detects it`s being broken into.

Elon Musk has confirmed that Tesla will be rolling out an update this week called "dog mode."

Musk received a request for a dog mode in October 2018 via Twitter. Specifically, the original tweet request asked that the mode plays music, turns on the air conditioning and displays a message on the car`s display screen saying "I`m fine my owner will be right back."

It is not immediately clear whether dog mode will be exactly as the original tweeter requested it, a mode which keeps the AC on could help prevent dogs from overheating while sat in the car.

The American Veterinary Medical Association says hundreds of pets die every year from heat exhaustion because they are left in parked vehicles. It said the temperature inside a car can rise almost 20 degrees in just 10 minutes. 

Business Insider contacted Tesla for further detail.
