Tesla 2022.12 Update and Release Notes: Disney+ Expands Outside U.S.

2022 12 software update

Tesla has started rolling out its 2022.12 software update and according to new images shared by @techAU, we have a glimpse of the release notes.

The 2022.12 release notes detail Additional Bottom Bar Customization, Disney+, Child Lock, Additional Mobile App Controls and New Language Support.

Many have criticized the new V11 bottom bar layout for icons and Tesla appears to have made some improvements based on feedback. We’ll post updates once we find out what’s new here. We’d like to see more options for icons to stay put in the bottom bar, beyond the handful of favorites.

@techAU says these screenshots were not on their car, but likely shared by a reader of the site. We’ve reached out to confirm.

As for Disney+, it looks to have expanded outside of the U.S. for the first time. A second image shared by @techAU shows the Disney+ sign-in screen in a Tesla, showing Australian pricing at $11.99/month or $119.99 per year.

It’s worth pointing out that Disney+ in Canada also is priced locally at $11.99/month and $119.99/year, so there may be a chance the expansion could also hit the ‘Great White North’.

We’ll update this post accordingly once we have more details on Tesla’s 2022.12 update.

Tesla continues to keep its vehicles up to date with software improvements. With Elon Musk joining the board of Twitter and also now becoming the largest shareholder of the company, it may be just a matter of time before we see the social media application make its way into a Tesla, right?
