Elon Musk says that Tesla & # 39; is soon & # 39; will allow owners to stream YouTube and Netflix in their vehicles, highlighting the experience as "incredibly immersive" with a "cinematic feel".
While the Tesla Model S and Model X are equipped with a 17-inch screen and the Model 3 with a 15-inch display, the video playback capacity is set so that it can only be used for the rear view camera and no other video content can be played back.
This also applies to vehicles being driven or even if it is parked.
However, Tesla has talked about enabling streaming inside his vehicles when they are parked.

He also hypeed the feature as "amazingly immersive". with a "cinematic feel" through "the comfortable seats and surround sound audio" in Tesla vehicles.
The main purpose of the upcoming new feature is likely to be when it is stopped during a road trip.
Musk also said earlier that Tesla's video streaming only works in conjunction with Wi-Fi access, so as not to exploit the bandwidth of the cellular connection in the car, which would be expensive for Tesla, as in most vehicles is included.
Last year, Tesla launched a new paid premium connectivity package to support the Internet capabilities of its growing fleet in the car. 4] Electrek's Take
As previously mentioned, Tesla has designed the interior of the Model 3 so that It is aimed at autonomous driving and it is expected that media consumption in vehicles will become even more important with the advent of fully autonomous driving.
The Model The middle screen of 3 would be a good example. Landscape instead of the vertical screen design of the S / X model is better for video.
Some even found that the screen resolution of the Model 3 is 1920 × 1200, with the bottom bar being 120px and the top of the screen remaining 1920 × 1080, perfect for full HD video.
Although Elon is currently talking about streaming video, I think Tesla will focus more on retrofitting this screen for media content. Find out about Autonomous Driving.
At first it sounded like it was released with version 10 of Tesla's software, but now Elon is talking about the feature coming "soon".
I'm not sure if that means it comes regardless of version 10 or if version 10 comes sooner than expected.
