X App for Tesla Coming to Watch Videos in the Car
Elon Musk plans to make an official X app for Tesla vehicles, so owners can watch videos and more. That’s according to a response from the X owner and Tesla CEO on late Monday.
“This might be a dumb question. How do you watch X videos on a Tesla?”, posed Jenny. Musk replied, “We will make an app allowing you to see the latest from X on your car screen.” It’s unclear if this would be just for videos or also seeing the latest X posts. It would make sense to be a full-fledged X app.
It’s unclear when an official X app will debut for Tesla vehicles, given Musk’s timeframes for launching features. But this does confirm an official X app will debut within Tesla Theater in the future.

Tesla Theatre allows owners to stream from video apps such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, YouTube, Twitch, TikTok and more. Streaming is possible when connected to Wi-Fi, or with a Premium Connectivity subscription from Tesla.
Alternatively, you can also stream other services within your Tesla by launching the web browser and using ABetterTheater.com and signing into official services with your credentials.
For our Premium X subscribers, the company now offers the ability to post longer videos—up to 2 hours of 1080p or 3 hours of 720p. Our Media Studio, accessible at http://studio.x.com, is now open to all X Premium subscribers. Additionally, you can download videos from your timeline directly to your camera roll and even enable or disable the download option for videos you post.
X has also added auto-captioning for popular videos and AirPlay support, allowing users to stream videos directly to televisions. Enjoy the convenience of picture-in-picture playback so you can watch videos while scrolling through your timeline or using other apps. X has introduced advanced video controls like playback speed adjustment and double-tap to fast forward or jump back.
The live broadcasting quality from mobile devices has been improved, and the immersive video player is now available on both Android and iOS—just swipe up to go to the next video. Furthermore, you can now speak in and co-host a Space on the web, and we’ve expanded support to accommodate millions of participants on Spaces, said X last week.
