The future of Tesla: watch movies as the car drives itself
To add to the excitement, Musk said that the goal is to have the movies streaming live even when the car is moving, but this will only happen once they are legally fully autonomous and have been “approved by regulators.”
If that wasn’t enough, Tesla’s in-car gaming would also be included in this list of future goals. Driver, passengers and all, everyone will be able to take part during long, or short, drives.
Tesla car owners will soon be able to follow their favorite movies and series from Netflix and funny videos from YouTube channels directly from the inside screen.
Ability to stream YouTube & Netflix when car is stopped coming to your Tesla soon! Has an amazingly immersive, cinematic feel due to the comfy seats & surround sound audio.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 27, 2019
The screen inside tesla cars is not only to provide the driver with the necessary information about the road and the car, but it is also for entertainment where Tesla has already revealed the possibility of playing in it within the e3 games exhibition and there will be powerful games like Fallout Shelter and Tesla itself launched cuphead in addition to Classic Atari games such as Tempest, Pole Position, and Missile Command, and for smart game rs, they can play chess via Tesla Arcade.
The games only work if the car is parked and the steering wheel can be used to control the game, and now with the necessary approvals, the follow-up videos will only be when the car is off the action and with the experience of watching movies and surround sounds, and in the future if the authorities agree to Fully self-driving cars, Tesla will do on-the-go viewing as well.
The most important problem now is that the Tesla screen doesn’t support HTML5, which is the format that all YouTube clips do today, so Tesla will need to send software updates before the feature is activated.
Activation of entertainment within the car is especially targeted at passengers and not the driver, especially if there are children who can entertain by watching cartoons on the screen while waiting inside the parked car for the driver to return from outside.
Perhaps the future of Tesla owners involves living full-time in their vehicles, given all the fancy added features yet to come!
At the moment, the plan is for Tesla’s Models S, 3, or X to enjoy these perks.
The days of sitting bored in traffic or waiting for a friend to get ready will be long gone, thanks to Tesla.
Everyone will enjoy staying up to date with the latest TV shows or news, and until the self-driving features of the Tesla cars are approved entirely, the streaming of YouTube and Netflix while you’re not driving, will have to suffice.
