Australian Tesla drivers will soon be able to browse web, watch YouTube and even stream Netflix when a web browser is added to the system in the next over-the-air software update.
Of course, the new browser and all its abilities, will only be accessible when the Tesla Model S, Model X and the new Model 3 in parked.
A browser has been available on Tesla vehicles in the US for some time and it is now being offered to Australian owners for the first time.
Anyone ordering their own Tesla can use Tech Guide’s referral code to get free Supercharging for 1500km. https://ts.la/stephen70479
The browser will be the latest feature added to the major Tesla Version 9 software.
Once it is installed, the Tesla vehicle will have to be in Park for the browser to work on the 17-inch (Model S and Model X) and 15-inch (Model 3) screens.
It is understood the browser will be a version of Google Chrome.
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.

Having a browser will allow drivers to run Google searches, view and bookmark their favourite sites and also access online content through YouTube and Netflix – as confirmed in a recent tweet from Tesla boss Elon Musk.
