Tesla Disables Passenger Play Feature After Federal Investigation

To prevent this problem, Tesla will now be adding a feature to disable Passenger Play while the car is moving. When this feature kicks in, the driver and the passengers cannot play any video games on the Tesla displays inside the car. It doesn't matter if they're in the front or back seat, game time can only resume when the car is at a full stop.


In 2019, Tesla introduced the Passenger Play feature with a few compatible games on this platform. So far, the notable titles on this platform includes Studio MDPR's Cuphead and Bethesda's Fallout Shelter.
