Elon Musk says Tesla owners will be able to stream Netflix, YouTube

Video will be in car's center dashboard

(CNN) - Soon Tesla owners will be able to stream Netflix and YouTube from the car's center dashboard so they can catch up and binge on their favorite shows on the road.

However, the mode only works while the car is stopped.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce the upcoming feature, saying that it may be available in August and "not more than a few months" if it doesn't roll out next month.

Musk says that it is an "amazingly immersive, cinematic feel" due to the comfortable seats and surround sound audio, and that it has an "old school drive in movie experience."

"When full self-driving is approved by regulators, we will enable video while moving," Musk wrote on Twitter.

Netflix, YouTube and new console entertainment additions will be packaged with Autopilot V10, Tesla's driver assistance system, which may be rolling out to wide at the end of August. But, that is largely dependent on how smoothly the rollout goes to Tesla owners in the Early Access Program.

Musk says that V10 will have improved highway Autopilot, better traffic light and stop sign recognition and Smart Summon.

Smart Summon is one of the more advanced features coming to Tesla cars. Cars with this feature can automatically navigate through a parking lot, find an available parking space and then come back to you when summoned.
