2022.8.3 Release Notes

Cabin Camera

Help Tesla improve the intelligence of features that rely on cabin camera by sharing analytics from your vehicle. When enabled, cabin cameras data will be shared with Tesla if the vehicle experiences a safety critical event like a collision, or if cabin camera functionality requires diagnostics to perform. This data includes short cabin camera video clips to help us further develop future safety features and software enhancements such as collision avoidance updates. As usual, you can adjust your data sharing preferences by tapping Controls > Software > Data Sharing > Allow Cabin Camera Analytics.


Charging Time Estimation

Estimated charging times are now more accurate by taking the current battery pack temperature into account when a vehicle is connected to a Supercharger or a third-party fast charger.


Vehicle Preconditioning

Vehicle preconditioning accessed via the Tesla app will now remain active up to 30 minutes after a door is opened, making it easier to load your vehicle without affecting climate control.


Active Phone Calls

You can now hide your phone call card, allowing you to see the next turn when the navigation turn list is covered. Tap the phone icon on the status bar to show the card again.


New Language Support

Your touchscreen is now available in Czech. To switch your language settings, tap Controls > Display > Touchscreen Language.
