Release Notes.

Driving Visualization Improvements (only for vehicles with HW3)​
The driving visualization can now display additional objects which include stop lights, stop signs and select road markings. The stop sign and stop light visualizations are not a substitute for an attentive driver and will not stop the car. To see these additional object in your driving visualization, tap Controls > Autopilot > Full Self-Driving Visualization Preview.​
Voice Commands
Voice commands have been rebuilt to understand natural language. For this initial release, we focused on commands that minimize having to touch the screen so you can keep your eyes on the road. A few areas and examples of what you can say are:​
Climate: "Set the temperature to 70", "Turn on the passenger seat heater"​
Vehicle: "Adjust my right mirror", "Open the glovebox"​
Navigation: "Let's go to work", "Where are the nearby supercharging stations"​
Media: "Play the Beatles", "Search for Joe Rogan podcast"​
Communication: "Call David Lewis", "Send a text message to Evan"​
Other: "Show me the rear camera", "Open Autopilot settings"​
Anonymized voice commands will be captured to further train and improve the system in future software updates.​
Phone Improvements
You can now read and respond to text messages using your right scroll wheel button. When a new message is received press the right scroll wheel button to have your text message read out loud and press again to respond by speaking out loud. You will also be able to view messages as they come in via the "Cards" section of the touchscreen.​
To view messages that have been received while your phone is connected via Bluetooth, tap the Application Laucher > Call > Messages. You can read and reply to a message by tapping an entry in the Messages list. To enable this feature, tap the Bluetooth icon on the top of the display, and enable "Sync Messages". Once enabled you can also choose to play a chime whenever a new text message is received by enabling "Chime on New Message".​
Additionally, if you have favorite phone contacts on your device, you can now easily access them from the Favorites tab of the Phone app.​
Note: Notifications need to be enabled on your device from the phone's Bluetooth settings to send and receive text messages. Due to the limitations of Bluetooth support from your device, you will not be able to send group messages. As usual, Bluetooth behavior may depend on make and model of your device.​
Camp Mode
Your car can now maintain airflow, temperature, interior lighting, as well as play music, and power devices when Camp Mode is enabled. To enable Camp Mode, tap the fan icon at the bottom of the touchscreen and set Keep Climate On to CAMP while your car is in PARK. Big batteries rock.​
Tesla Theater
You can now watch Twitch in the Tesla Theater app. To launch Tesla Theater, tap the Entertainment icon in the Application Launcher and select the Theater tab while your car is in PARK.​

More details about 2019.40.50.1.

Here are the parts that were not included in the version of release notes that we've seen so far. We probably need to find somebody with these particular vehicles in these particular countries in order to see them.
  • Smart Summon for EU, KR, AE, CN
  • Navigate on Autopilot for AU, NZ, TW
  • "Adaptive Suspension Damping" for Raven S/X with air suspension
I've also updated the release notes above to specify that Stardew Valley and TRAX are only available on cars with MCU v2 or newer (sorry older S & X owners).

It sounds like text message receiving is currently incompatible with RCS.

RCS is a replacement for SMS that adds many features. Both Google and Samsung have launched RCS-capable texting apps. All four major US Carriers now support the new protocol. Apple has similar functionality in its proprietary iMessage, but iMessage only works between Apple phones. Apple has not yet committed to supporting RCS.

So I am currently running 2019.40.50.1 and when I was testing out the text message feature I was able to send text without any issue. But when I get a reply and have the car read it out to me it reads all the coding that comes with the text. You can see in the pic below the card that popped up when I got a text. All those letters and numbers and dashes were read out by my car. View attachment 31429
It’s RCS messaging on android. You can temporarily disable RCS messaging until this gets fixed

These releases appear to have introduced new climate pre-heating behavior, as described by @NorfolkMustard
In particular, the car appears to now use additional energy to warm the battery in addition to warming the cabin.
Click the top line of the quote below for all of the details.

I was listening to the latest podcast yesterday, and thought @TrevP et al may find this interesting as they mentioned the lack of a dedicated battery heater on the Model 3 and Tesla's alternative approach to battery heating.

I've been tapping into the tesla api for a couple of months and logging the output. After noticing that the regen was normal/full even on recent cold mornings when it hadn't been previously, I did some digging.

Both graphs show the same morning routine over two separate days/firmware versions. The car is plugged in (10a/240v TMC), outside temp and inside temp-target the same. I turn on climate remotely in the app about 30mins before I head out for the first drive of the day. I don't adjust any settings, just app > climate > turn on climate

The top graph show v2019.40.2
After the initial spike of power (the orange bars show power (kW) being drawn from the battery+TMC as-at each minute's api reading i.e. it's not a cumulative kWh energy usage) it settles to 2kW after about 4 mins - enough to keep the cabin at the desired temp (blue line)



The next graph shows the same morning routine but with 2019.40.50
You can see the power being drawn stays at a sustained 10kW for much longer, about 20 minutes, well after the cabin is at the desired temperature.
To me this shows tesla have changed the battery pre-heating in this latest firmware. I like it - predictable regen from the get-go




I also have scan-my-tesla gubbins installed and you can see from that the front & rear stators were toasty (80-90ºC) and the battery coolant inlet was still higher (31ºC) than the battery pack 22ºC (cell-temp-mid) at 10:20am - the battery continues to be warmed by the coolant flowing around them even after the stators stop drawing power
