Netflix and YouTube find unlikely home in Tesla cars

Netflix and YouTube find unlikely home in Tesla cars

Though this may seem like a slightly unsafe distraction, Musk further tweet that the feature will be enabled once "full self-driving is approved by regulators".

Musk touts an "immersive, cinematic feel" thanks to the surround sound audio system.

In addition to expanding what is already the world's most comprehensive fast-charging network, Tesla appears to be responding to increased EV competition by providing more in-car entertainment functions that give customers new ways to pass the time while their vehicles are charging.

While an upcoming update means you'll be able to stream Netflix and YouTube on Tesla's massive touchscreen dashboard display, there will be a safety feature to ensure the company isn't courting disaster.

When I tested out Tesla's newest game, Beach Buggy Racing 2, in a Tesla Model 3 last month, the vehicle was parked. Plus Chess rolled out earlier this month on Tesla Arcade.

You can only play games while the vehicle is parked.

"Ability to stream YouTube and Netflix when vehicle is stopped coming to your Tesla soon!" However, Musk did mention at the E3 conference that the ability to watch YouTube was coming.

The feature will eventually allow users to stream content on the move, once full self-driving has been approved by regulators, the entrepreneur teased on Twitter. This means that the feature is not yet available in Tesla cars at the moment.

The gaming and video features can come in handy while waiting for vehicles to recharge at a Supercharger station or while waiting in the auto in between errands.
