Elon Musk recently tweeted some exciting news for those who own Tesla cars and those who consider buying them. Although all Tesla cars have had a browser for a while, it did not support the browser Netflix or YouTube. Elon tweeted that Tesla will soon roll out both YouTube and the Netflix car capabilities! (Note that Netflix and YouTube will only work while the car is parked.)
As one who spent 4 hours in Tesla in my garage just enjoyed the wonderful stereo last week (because I had been on vacation for 2 weeks, I missed my car), I know my car quickly becomes the best place in my house to watch YouTube and Netflix. The 15-inch screen is a bit small compared to the 42-inch screen in my bedroom, but the sound in the car is superior to the $ 3,000 home theater I have in my family room.
Full Self Driving + Netflix / YouTube!
Elon added a minute later that this is not only for use in a parked car, but will be useful while traveling as soon as regulators approve full self-driving (FSD). I expect the arcade games and the newly released chess game will also be activated in the car.
It is clear that Elon not only hyped the Full Self Driving option, but he realizes that sometime people do not need to see the road, they will have a great need for entertainment options.
I'm happy to see that he supports the popular streaming services on YouTube and Netflix instead of creating Tesla's own streaming channel. When Tesla has 10 million autonomous cars out there, you may want to roll out its own content, but I think Tesla has enough on his plate right now with all the projects it has already committed to.
