After Tesla released its new Holiday Update 2020.48.25 yesterday, we started receiving messages about the new functionality. In addition to the fact that now there is an opportunity to play new games, it will give its owners a number of new, pleasant, and some very funny updates.
To begin with, Tesla changed the format of the release notes. You can now select a function from the list and click on it for more information.

- Scheduled departure improvements
- Supercharger display improvements

Yesterday, Tesmanian reported that Tesla has added 3 great games that will entertain their owners in any situation, and will complement the already existing collection of Tesla Arcade games. In addition, a new long-awaited entertainment was presented: now you can entertain the crowd with your media player when the vehicle is parked. You can customize the horn sounds emitted by your car, and here Tesla tried to add the most popular and funny ones, such as: Fart (of course, how can we do without it?), Toss a Coin (obviously to your Witcher), Goat! (as promised by Elon Musk), Old Horn, Applause, Tada, Ba Dum Tss, DJ, La Cucaracha, and much more. (Please be sure to check local laws before using in public places.)

We can also see that now you have the ability to select driving sound and summon sound, for which you can choose new sounds from Tesla or insert your own USB device, and save up to five custom sounds. It will be a great and fun addition to your center entertainment on wheels.
In the release notes posted by Teslascope/Twitter, we may have a look at other updates. All Tesla owners now have access to Driving visualization improvements
The driving visualization has been refreshed and now offers a larger visualization to allow drivers to view more details of the road surroundings. The next turn will now appear above the visualization if the navigation turn list is covered by another app.
Additionally, select items have slightly moved but will continue to look and behave the same. Some notable differences include the following:
- Quick access to the backup camera and wipers has moved to the bottom bar.
- Indicator lights have been moved to the side of the touchscreen.
- Autopilot set speed, Autopilot availability, and detected speed limit are now displayed next to the driving speed.
Scheduled Departure Improvements
Scheduled Departure can now recondition your battery and cabin even when your car is unplugged. To account for different utility rate plans, you can now set the time when your off-peak rates end to save on charging costs. To access, tap SCHEDULE from the climate control or charging panel when parked.
Emissions Testing Mode Improvements
Emissions Testing Mode can now be used outside the car. To setup, select your desired sound and place the cushion on the external speaker. When ready, play selected sound by pressing the left scroll wheel button or using the turn signal. To access, tap the Application Launcher> Toybox> Emissions Testing Mode.
Supercharger Display Improvements
Supercharger pins on your touchscreen will now display the number of available stalls at charging sites. Quickly search for nearby amenities by tapping an amenity icon on the Supercharger popup display.
