What changes for the 2022.12.1 update?

Tesla’s interest is to offer the OTA option: once your car is connected to a Wi-Fi network, it downloads its updates and installs them, like the OS of a smartphone. The features of your car are therefore constantly evolving with small changes, but also big changes that can even optimize range and performance.

This time around, these are welcome minor changes. The first change follows some criticism of the new end-of-year 2021 interface: the bottom bar is going to be even more customizable. You can add shortcuts for demisting, windscreen wipers or seat heating. Depending on the user profile, these are the shortcuts that will be loaded and placed in the bar accessible with a touch. Like the Android or iPhone app launcher, you customize everything to suit your needs.

As on the American version, Disney + is arriving, in addition to Netflix and Twitch. Very handy if you are charging your vehicle and want to run the latest fashionable series to pass the time.

Moreover, Tesla has also thought about children with a new security option that allows you to disable the opening of a single door of your choice. Same observation for the mobile application which now allows you to activate the Dog mode remotely (as well as the Camping mode), ideal if you want to leave your dog for a few minutes in the car without worrying about his health.

The update is rolling out to current models over time, so just wait to be notified through the app.
