Tesla owners in China can soon play mahjong and poker in cars
The electric vehicle maker is betting big on Chinese consumers as production takes off in its Shanghai gigafactory
Tesla says it’s bringing games and streaming videos to its in-car touchscreens in China next quarter. The over-the-air software update will give users access to three Tencent games -- including mahjong and poker -- as well as video platforms Bilibili and Alibaba’s Youku.

Drivers elsewhere can already play a slate of titles on Tesla Arcade, a global game hub that launched earlier this year. They can also watch YouTube and Netflix, both of which are unavailable in China. But no matter where you are, you can only play games or watch videos when the car isn’t moving.
