Full-Self Driving is in early limited access Beta and mist be used with additional caution. It may do the wrong thing at the worst time, so you must always keep your hands on the wheel and pay extra attention to the road. Do not become complacent
When Full Self-Driving is enabled your vehicle will make lane changes off highway, select forks to follow your navigation route, navigate around other vehicles and objects, and make left and right turns. Use Full Self-Driving in limited Beta only if you will pay constant attention to the road, and be prepared to act immediately, especially around blind corners, crossing intersections, and in narrow driving situations.
The fruits of Tesla’s labor are starting to culminate as Tesla released a very limited release of their Full Self-Driving Beta. The feature includes an increase of capabilities as well as a more raw look at the data that your car is processing. You can now see the rough boundaries, cars, and possible routes that the car is thinking of taking in real-time. While it’s not a wide release, this represents a very important milestone for Tesla as the brand is looking to increase its autonomous features up a level. It is important to state that this feature is by no means perfect. The release notes are very blunt about the fact that this system can do the wrong things at the worst time, so even more careful attention will need to be paid when compared to even standard Autopilot as the car will now attempt to do things that haven’t been as rigorously trained in the neural net.

Your car’s range has increased with new software that improves the efficiency of the motors and the climate control system.
Note: These changes do not impact acceleration or overall climate control performance.
Tesla does it again, providing a tangible software update to their cars that not only adds a feature or fixes a bug, but actually provides a performance increase to the car. The update coincides with a slight model refresh that Tesla recently made which saw several of their models increase their ranges. This update appears to be targeted towards the Model Y, but the exact criteria for if all of them, or only certain units will receive the update. Owners are reporting an increase of about 10 miles to their range, which understandably isn’t huge, but the action of increasing a car’s performance simply through a software update is cool.
