- Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk pointed out that you will soon be able to stream Netflix and YouTube in your vehicles while it is stopped
The in-car displays built into Tesla vehicles have multiple purposes including providing navigation, entertainment, a “dog mode,” and games. Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk also recently wrote a tweet that the vehicles will soon be able to stream content from Netflix and YouTube.
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.

What games can you play in Tesla vehicles? Last month, Bethesda Studios said that Fallout Shelter was coming soon. Plus Tesla also released Cuphead and several old school Atari games like Tempest, Pole Position, and Missile Command. Plus Chess rolled out earlier this month on Tesla Arcade. The steering wheel serves as the controller for these games.
You can only play games while the vehicle is parked. And this will be the same case for watching Netflix and YouTube on the in-car display. But Musk also pointed out that video will be enabled while the car is moving when regulators approve self-driving:
When full self-driving is approved by regulators, we will enable video while moving

It is unknown when this feature will be rolling out. However, Musk did mention at the E3 conference that the ability to watch YouTube was coming. So I suspect that YouTube will be coming sooner than the Netflix feature.
The gaming and video features can come in handy while waiting for vehicles to recharge at a Supercharger station or while waiting in the car in between errands.
