Tesla owners will soon be able to watch YouTube and Netflix from the comfort of the driver's seat - but only when the car is stationary, founder Elon Musk has said.

The feature will eventually allow users to stream content on the move, once full self-driving has been approved by regulators, the entrepreneur teased on Twitter.

"Ability to stream YouTube & Netflix when car is stopped coming to your Tesla soon!," Mr Musk wrote.

"Has an amazingly immersive, cinematic feel due to the comfy seats & surround sound audio.

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

Video entertainment on the vehicle's main screen is one of several updates set to arrive on the company's v10 software, which is also expected to include several new games and infotainment features, improved autopilot, better traffic light and stop sign recognition, and Smart Summon, the Tesla boss added.
