At the E3 event, during a special Q&A today Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed that Tesla’s in-car display would support YouTube someday soon. In a talk with Todd Howard and Geoff Keighley, Elon also answered some very interesting general questions.
Musk specifically said YouTube would be coming to cars during the E3 event today, at which he revealed that Bethesda’s Fallout 3 would be coming to the infotainment displays, and unveiled a demo video of Android game Beach Buggy Racer running on a display in a Tesla Model 3. Musk, a huge video game nerd himself, showed a game demonstration for Beach Buggy Racing 2, revealing how you could use the steering wheel of an actual Tesla car to control the in-game vehicle.
This isn’t the first time the Tesla CEO has suggested YouTube might one day have a home in the company’s cars: In response to a fan’s question on Twitter last August he noted that version 10 of the company’s in-car software would provide support for third-party video streaming. The company debuted its Software Version 9.0 last year.
Musk confirmed that YouTube is coming to Tesla vehicles, though he didn’t reveal release dates. One thing is clear. However, Tesla is in the hopes of trying to maintain its competitive edge, is boldly drumming up support all sorts of apps, including, apparently, console-level games.
