Small additions but very helpful. You can now find your car’s tire pressure measurements in the Tesla app and, if you’re a Powerwall owner, the tutorials will be available in the app as well.
Tesla has added a new section about ’normal’ operating sounds that also comes with examples. Great addition especially for new Tesla owners so they know they exist and nothing’s wrong with your Tesla.

In a recent presentation, Tesla shared more details about Dojo’s architecture and its processing pipeline.
According to @ChrisZheng001, Model 3 and Model Y will be releasing a new steering wheel. According to him, the new steering wheel will remove the stalks and incorporate touch-sensitive controls, like the refreshed Model S and Model X.

Great news for not only for Tesla owners but also for all EV owners in California. Up until now, having a second meter to measure EV electricity was required in order to be able to get different rates for EV charging and for the house. Well, now this is changing which opens up options for better rates and vehicle-to-everything charging.
As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.
