My 2022 Platinum showed about a 20% increase in range since the software updated about a week ago. I can confirm that indeed it did extend the range. They must have done something in the back ground to access more of the battery.
Yes, this was posted a couple of months ago and there are threads about it here. It was part of the enhancement to the Guess-O-Meter, officially called the DTE (Distance to Empty) indicator. This is not the way to test your actual range as it is a black-box calculation that doesn't know where you are going or how fast.

Don't trust the GOM! Best ways to calculate how far...In EV forums there are always lots of new threads popping up from first time BEV drivers who are all worried or worked up because their Guess-O-Meter (GOM) is showing much less range than they think it should. This will especially happen in colder weather when the range drops. For new EV owners...www.lightningowners.com

It did change the range, I have confirmed that.It didnt change your actually range it just gives the number you want to see.
I frequently drive from Vancouver BC to Whistler BC, usually once/week. Total distance is approx 250km (we are Canadian after all!). The drive is always in the winter, average outdoor temps are -5C to 0C. Since the update (about 2 weeks ago as it would not properly update the last time I tried about 2 months ago) I am seeing way more distance to empty than before the update. About 20% more.Please expand on how you have confirmed, we are all ears.
Wouldn't the 2 go hand in hand?Don’t pay attention to the DTE number. Pay attention to the remaining %. If by some chance under the same conditions your remaining % was 45% previously and now it’s 55% then your range increased
