Elon Musks has long touted the potential for motorists to find a vehicle display found in Tesla. In addition to providing information, you can also provide entertainment. To that end, he said the car would soon be able to stream video from Netflix and YouTube.
Tesla has already introduced a game that can play games on the driver. In June, Bethesda Studio announced that the driver can do Fallout Shelter at E3. Tesla also released classic Atari games such as Cuphead and Tempest, Pole Position Missile Command . On Friday, the company unveils the fact that drivers can play chess games at Tesla Arcade .
The game only works while the car is parked and the player can use the steering wheel as a controller. When the regulator approves driving, Tesla says passengers can stream video while the car is moving, says Musk . Musk did not release an itinerary for this feature.
You can stream YouTube and Netflix as soon as Tesla stops playing!

This is not a desire to let drivers and passengers see the video. To my surprise, Musk mentioned that the ability to view YouTube on E3 will be released. Up to this point, the display does not support HTML5. So although one owner found the road around it, such features are not currently possible in cars.
The ability to catch up with Netflix queues or play video games in cars is appealing to people who have long been waiting in the car for their children's practice or stuck in a car for a long time. (Some minivans have a TV screen.) When a car finally comes to be able to drive by itself, passengers will want to be there while they are on their destination.
However, these features are of great concern. Test cars have a driver behind the wheel in case something goes wrong, and it's hard to imagine that even if the driving skills improve, the test cars disappear completely. There was also one case where TV became a problem. The test driver of the car was watching Hulu's The Voice in a deadly crash in 2017 between Uber chair and driver and pedestrian.
