What is included in the ID. software 3.1?

Plug & Charge 

The "Plug & Charge" function now makes charging even easier: If activated, your ID. can authenticate itself at public charging stations and start the charging process automatically once the charging cable is plugged into the car without the need to scan a charging card.
To use the function at a compatible charging station, you need a charging plan, such as We Charge Go or We Charge Plus from Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH (Elli), which supports "Plug & Charge". After charging is completed, billing is automatically carried out based on the stored charging rate plan. Active "Plug & Charge" via the Volkswagen App and in the charging settings of your vehicle.
