2022.20 Release Notes: Tesla Launches Green Traffic Light Chime for Basic Autopilot

Tesla started rolling out its 2022.20 software update last night and with it has debuted its Green Traffic Light Chime for owners with basic Autopilot that comes standard on every vehicle, it appears.

The 2022.20 release notes where shared on the TMC forums (via @Tesla_Adri) by a Model S refresh owner ‘BBB4000’ that says they did not purchase Full Self-Driving or Enhanced Autopilot, which includes the green light chime feature.

Check out the description of the added feature below:

Green Traffic Light Chime

A chime will play when the traffic light you are waiting for turns green. If you are waiting behind another vehicle, the chime will play once the vehicle advances unless Traffic-Aware Cruise Control or Autosteer is active.

Note: This chime is only designed as a notification. It is the driver’s responsibility to observe their environment and make decisions accordingly.

It’s unclear if this feature will become available on the Model 3 or Model Y at this point, as we await more release notes from the 2022.20 software update to hit the web. But the addition would be a highly welcomed feature.

Other features from the 2022.20 software update for the Model S and Model X refresh include Seat Belt System Enhancement and Tesla Adaptive Suspension.

The new seat belt feature will tighten the seat belt tensioner in a wider array of frontal crashes, explains Tesla, while the adaptive suspension feature will adjust ride height automatically as rough roads are detected in map data.

Did you get the 2022.20 software update? If you have a Model 3 or Y, did you get this green light chime feature?
