Over the past few weeks, General Motors has focused on bringing Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support to its vehicles. While this functionality is great for drivers, the company's current infotainment ecosystem still relies on being updated at dealerships -- which can be a hassle to some people. But, it looks like that won't be the case for much longer. On Wednesday, GM's global product development chief, Mark Reuss, said the automaker is already working on a new technology that will allow future vehicles to receive cloud-based software updates.

Tesla is known for offering a similar service, making it easy for Model S owners to receive new features and security updates wirelessly. As for when we can expect this to be available on GM vehicles, Reuss didn't share a timetable -- at least we know it's coming, eventually.
