Tesla’s Will Soon Get Netflix and Youtube, Elon Musk Says

Between
games
and dog mode, Elon Musk clearly wants to make Tesla’s a
place you’ll never want to get out of. Now, on top of the tons of
features the cars already offer, you’ll soon be able to stream
your favorite Netflix shows and Youtube videos from the car’s
dashboard tablet. CEO Musk announced the development in a Tweet
over the weekend, clarifying that drivers will only be able to
access the feature while the car is in park. However, Musk hopes
that the cars will be able to access the feature while driving once
the self-driving mode is able to work better in the future.

Tesla’s Major Advances

Tesla made major advances to the automobile market when it came
on the scene back in 2008. However, the cars’ high price tag was
reserved for only the super-rich, and a lack of accessibility to
charging stations made the nearly $100,000 price tag hard to
warrant for many. Today, thousands of Tesla charging units are
littered along freeways throughout the United States. Drivers of
the all-electric vehicles can charge their cars in as little as a
few hours. This has made cross country travel virtually effortless
for Tesla drivers.

Meanwhile, Musk has worked hard to make the cars more accessible
to the everyday person. The company launched its first affordable
model earlier this year with the Tesla Model 3. Musk promised the
arrival of the Model 3, which starts in the $30,000’s, back in
2016. However it took some time to make that promise come true, as
the company hit a couple of road blocks along the way, from a lack
of resources, high production costs, and drama between the
company’s investors and Musk himself back in the fall of
2018.

After the arrival of the Model 3 Tesla announced that it not
only met its sales goals for the second quarter of 2019, but
exceeded them. The company revealed just a few weeks ago that its
had to amp up production in order to meet demand with the influx of
sales that have come from the release of the Model 3. All of this
appears to be good news for investors in the public company, but
experts warn that an increase in sales on a cheaper product does
not necessarily mean that the company is doing better than it was
before. If anything, it could be bringing in the same amount of
money, with a greater cost in production.

In Recent Months

Regardless, thousands more Tesla’s are being driven than
before. The interiors of the cars have also gotten more features in
the last couple of months as well. Musk announced awhile back that
the independently released video game, Cuphead, would be coming to
Tesla cars in August. The game, which uses old-school animation
styles to take players on a stressful adventure through the seven
levels of hell, caught Musk’s attention when it was released
earlier this year.

Now, Musk and Tesla want to give the vehicles more of an
entertainment feature. In the coming months, drivers will be able
to watch Youtube and Netflix while their cars are in park. Just in
case watching makeup tutorials on your phone while sitting in your
car was too much of a strain on your eyes, you’ll soon be able to
sit back, relax, and stream it directly from your car.
