New software upgrade?



I have just seen this and I'm wondering if this update applies to the M235i GC. I have gone into the cars settings and My BMW app and can't see the update anywhere.

Has anyone updated their vehicle to this software?

I got the update a few weeks ago. I live in the United States. Takes a good 20 minutes.

My map screen is different, and it seems like the traffic info is way better. Also, i can use spotify now which is cool. Other than that, nothing really. It didn't tell me what changed after it was done. I'll have to look it up.

I got the update as well, it was a mixed succes.

First of all the buttons on the leavers/arms on the steering wheel, became unresponsive, basically nothing happened when clicked.

Next day I drove the car again, now they worked, but after 10min. drive (motorway) the dashboard rebooted! - Turned black for 5-10 sec. then it was back and all buttons worked again.

My build in spotify client, acted strange the same day, next day and also now, everythings works normally again..

For me it installed automatically,

only difference I've experienced is that the in the native Spotify app, the sound quality went to normal. It used to be worse than when playing from a connected phone's Spotify, but now they're equal.

And I guess there's some new traffic information, but didn't seem to be that realistic at least where I live.
