So, what’s new?
Now you can watch Disney+ within the Tesla Theater app. To launch Tesla Theater, faucet the Leisure icon within the Utility Launcher and choose the Theater tab whereas your automotive is in PARK.

For automated automotive washes with conveyor belts, the Free Roll possibility shifts to Impartial and prevents the parking brake from robotically making use of when you depart.

Perhaps that’ll remedy earlier inconveniences of householders when on the automotive wash; impartial has been reportedly tough to interact.
3. Mirror Auto Dim
Now you can allow or disable automated dimming to your mirrors. To entry, faucet Controls > Mirror > Mirror Auto Dim.
Tesla in now enabling you to activate and deactivate automated dimming, which was beforehand on throughout nighttime by default. I’ve to confess, that’s fairly helpful.

Lastly Tesla is giving the chance to make use of your individual knowledge if you want, as a substitute of paying $9.99 (plus tax) per 30 days for its premium connectivity options.
Final however not least, the automaker is including Romanian, Hungarian, and Russian language help.
Properly, all these options are nice in including to the “luxurious expertise” Tesla needs to supply, however not even one in all them helps repair the automaker’s largest challenge: security.
I perceive that drivers who’ve spent a big sum of money on a automotive wish to get probably the most out of it, however maybe Tesla ought to focus extra on bettering its Autopilot and FSD software program, than on investing on superficial options, equivalent to Disney+.
