just received an email from VW asking for consent to upgrade.
This was noted as the updated functionality:

Advanced main-beam control and driver assist systems

Vehicles equipped with advanced main-beam control now detect other road users even better. In the future, your driver assist systems will be available even while downloading an update.

Other improvements

We are optimising the stability of mobile online services. For vehicles with head-up displays, we are improving the interaction between hardware and software.

Release notes 2

New functions of ID. Light

The ID. Light translates alerts from your infotainment and assist systems into light signals under the windscreen. With this Over-the-Air Update, the following functions are also supported:
Steering wheel contact detection
Adaptive Cruise Control ACC
Efficiency assist
Absolute reserve mode

Your car must have the respective equipment in order to use them.

Design adjustments to infotainment system

We are also making some adjustments to the design:
The media player gets a spot in the side tab in the Radio/Media tile.
Under “Settings” → “Home button design”, you can select your favourite flag.
If you are in the home screen, you can use the elongated menu button to access the tile view.
Other design adjustments make orientation easier.

Other improvement

Improvement to the Dynamic Road Sign Display.

Note:
Installation of this Over-the-Air Update is a prerequisite for receiving further updates.

Yup got mine this morning, reading other forums seems it can take 1/2 weeks to get offered the update thru the car.

I think I have received an email about this. However its all in German and embarrassingly, I don't speak the language. So in all honesty I haven't a clue about what is to happen. The title of my email is "Over-the-Air Update für Ihren ID. – Jetzt zustimmen."

The two steps take variable amounts of time as I understand it. The first, smaller download takes approximately 2 hours with a further 20 minutes to update the car’s system. The second download is longer, up to 8 hours I believe and longer to install.

Ours was in German too, but you just need to [press the blue 'Zustimmen" button to agree. Funnily, the agreement confirmed screen was in English.

One thing that did catch my eye was this:

"Dynamic high beam control and driver assistance systems

Vehicles equipped with dynamic high beam control can now be seen by other road users even better. In the future, your driver assistance systems will also be available while an update is being downloaded."


More easily seen by other road users? I wonder what that means in terms of the operation of the headlights?

Mine happened in August as I volunteered in an early wave.

Part 1 took maybe 10 minutes to download, and you're told it will take up to 30 minutes to install.

Part 2 took 20-30 minutes to download, you're told it will take up to 3 hours to install.

The downloads happen when the car is started, the installations when it is stopped and locked up.

Finally received the email from VW this morning inviting me to agree to the software update. Will now await notification to download update in the car.
Got mine too.

Does anyone following this conversation know how long it will take to install? Hopefully there will be an option to schedule it or at least choose when to start the process.
