Here’s what’s new in Tesla’s 2021.24 software update…
Tesla Theater Gets Disney+: You can now watch Disney+ in the Tesla Theatre App. Click here to sign up for Disney+.
Car Wash Mode: closes all your windows, locks the charge port and also disables the wipers, sentry mode, walk-away door locks and parking sensor chimes. Tesla says “for automatic car washes with conveyor belts, the Free Roll option shifts to Neutral and prevents the parking brake from automatically applying if you leave. Access by going to Controls > Service > Car Wash Mode.
Mirror Auto Dim: Tesla says you can now enable/disable auto dimming for your mirrors. Tap Controls > Mirror > Mirror Auto Dim to access.
Dashcam Improvements: Tesla Dashcam can now automatically save clips when your car detects a safety event (such as accident or an airbag going off). Recordings are stored locally. Opt-in by going to Controls > Safety & Security > Dashcam > AUTO.
Range Display: Tesla now lets you switch between battery percentage and distance units faster, by tapping the range display next to the battery icon.
Remain Connected to WiFi in Drive: To make it more useful for users that want to use their hotspots for connectivity while driving, you can now stay connected to Wi-Fi while shifting into gear. Just tap the Wi-Fi icon > Wi-Fi Settings > Remain Connected in Drive.
New Language Support: Hungarian, Romanian and Russian now available as default language. Go to Controls > Display and select the language of your choice.
The release of 2021.24 comes after 2021.12.25.7 was released earlier this evening.
