Tesla has unveiled one of the largest Full Self Driving software updates. The Verge notes
Drivers will also receive an updated visualization,which will help to see the "augmented surrounding information", it will allow you to find out more information about the space around. The update also mentions a recently activated feature that uses a camera in the cabin to make sure the driver is watching the road when the autopilot is on. Despite the updates, Elon Musk urged beta test participants "to be paranoid" and asked them to be ready to get behind the wheel.
Just fyi, Tesla's Early Access Program (EAP) is a beta tester program established years ago as a way for Tesla to send early beta builds to owners for feedback. One needs to sign up for the EAP waitlist and wait for a spot in the program to open up.

As noted by The Verge, this version of the updatehas been preparing for a long time. Tesla first promised to activate FSD functions in August 2018, and Elon Musk promised that more than a million will drive on their own in 2020. However, even the beta version released in October 2020 did not provide drivers with full autonomy.
