BTW, during the chat I suggested they put 3.10.1 back up until they fix 3.10.2. May be just a coincidence, but it looks like they've done that now, at least for phones that already have the app installed. The Play Store now shows the Tesla app as installed and it's the 3.10.1 version. Previously, the installed app wasn't even showing up in the Store. Also, if you look at the app details in Android, it no longer says, "This app isn't compatible with your device anymore".

However, for an "incompatible" device that doesn't already have the app installed, it still isn't listed in the Play Store.

Yes, seems like it has changed this afternoon. Now on my computer it shows:

Updated: December 6, 2019
Size: Varies with device
Current Version: Varies with device

and on my phone:

Updated: Nov 22, 2019
Current Version: 3.10.2-388

Does your phone have an NFC chip? Version 3.10.2 supports it now and you can open and close a car by placing a phone at a B-pillar, like you do it with a key-card.
See, this is another reason that I'm glad to be part of this group. I would never have found out about the NFC feature, were it not for your post. Thank you for that! :) Activated NFC on my phone, works flawlessly.

So what's the blue line on the battery? Is that new?
Not new. When the battery is cold and a snowflake appears, signifying that not all energy stored in the battery is available to power the car, the blue line (actually segment) is a graphical representation of the % of energy stored in the battery that is currently unavailable to power the car until the battery warms up somewhat. Eyeballing your example, I'd guesstimate 3%-5%. As the battery warms, the blue segment shrinks until when it is gone, the snowflake also disappears. The battery typically doesn't have to warm up to the point that all the regenerative braking dots have vanished for the snowflake (and blue segment) to disappear, but it needs to be warmer than it currently is. I find that the battery needs to be colder than roughly 40F (give or take) for the snowflake to appear, whereas regenerative braking limitation dots appear below about 55F.

Here's a post where I explain the difference between the snowflake and limited regen/accel dots.
Both can occur due to cold, but they are not directly related like that.

Snowflake
The snowflake means that the battery has potential chemical energy that currently cannot be accessed until the battery gets warmer. If you switch to the "Charging" screen on the car's display, you'll see that part of the "filled" section of the battery is blue. This represents energy that cannot be accessed currently, but will be accessible when the battery warms up.

Here's a Model S display, with a pretty low battery, and a rather large blue section: picture link
You can also see this "blue" section on your phone's charging screen:

Limited Regen and Acceleration
Limited regen and acceleration can happen for several reasons. If the battery SOC (state of charge) is low, the car will begin limiting acceleration. An overheated battery can limit both acceleration and regen. And also, a really cold battery can limit both acceleration and regen. If the limitation is due to being too cold, then the limits will continue to relax slowly as the car is driven (or as it is being charged) and the battery heats up. A limitation in regen and acceleration due to cold is Tesla protecting the battery from permanent damage. A cold battery cannot accept or deliver very high currents without risking damage.

So... what's the difference?
So at a fundamental level, the snowflake is telling you about energy contained in the battery, while the accel/regen limitation is a protection measure to prevent permanent damage to the battery. Both are related to cold, but not directly related to each other.

Android app 3.10.3 is out with "minor fixes and improvements," along with the "Upgrades" option on the main menu.

There's no Apple Pay integration (as you'd expect), but you can pay by credit card.

Anyone susceptible to impulse purchases while bored and staring at their phones should probably avoid this screen. :)

Interestingly, it shows an "upgrade" for FSD on mine, for $4000. Only problem: I already have FSD. Weird.

Not really a fan of this new "upgrade" button, its non essential for driving and should a sub category of the "options" button.
Yeah, I understand their desire to generate more revenue by having an UPGRADE option prominently on the main app page, but maybe it should be listed below SCHEDULE SERVICE and ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE so that all the options for the operation and care of your car are grouped together.
