Tesla to bring YouTube and Netflix to cars

Tesla cars will be able to stream YouTube and Netflix "soon".

The firm's CEO Elon Musk has revealed they are planning on making both the video-sharing platform and movie and TV streaming service available in their cars for use when the vehicles are stopped.

He tweeted: "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."

The news comes after Tesla teased an in-car karaoke service.

Musk revealed that the "fun" music game will be featured in update 10, which could arrive as soon as August.

There has also been rumours of their own music streaming service, electrek.co reports.

Musk had tweeted last year: "Tesla Car Karaoke hopefully ready in OTA software update version 10. Just played Missile Command, Asteroids & Lunar Lander in V9. Really fun! (sic)"

Meanwhile, the firm have also "improved" the Sketchpad in the cars.

They said: "Sketchpad has been improved to make it easier to create your next masterpiece. the color picker now supports color saturation and in the case you make a mistake, you can undo multiple changes. To access Sketchpad, tap on the Application Launcher > Toybox > Sketchpad. (sic)"

Musk recently confirmed 'Cuphead' is coming to Tesla.

The car manufacturer recently teamed up with game developer Studio MDHR to bring the run and gun platformer to the Model 3, Model S and Model X.

He said: "It's a cool game. It's insanely difficult, it's sadistically difficult. It's a twisted plot.

"It's dark. It looks like some cute little Disney thing and you're like, 'This plot is very dark.' "

Drivers - parked cars - will only be able to use title's Inkwell Isle One segment due to storage limitations, and only with a wired US controller.

'Cuphead' first launched as a Microsoft exclusive on Xbox One and PC two years ago, and it was released on Nintendo Switch in April this year.

The animation style is deliberately in line with the Fleischer and Disney work in the 1930s, with gamers set up against a range of increasingly intense and difficult bosses.

In addition to 'Cuphead', Musk also said a "dune buggy" driving game is being tested for Tesla's catalogue, which has largely featured simple Atari titles.
