In July, Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed in a Twitter reply that the company intends to add Steam integration to its vehicle in the near future.
Similarly, back in February, Musk said, “We’re working through the general case of making Steam games work on a Tesla.”
We’re making progress with Steam integration. Demo probably next month.

Musk said that a demo of the integration should come in August, but it never did. However, according to Musk’s comments yesterday, September 13th, the integration hasn’t been scrapped and is in testing. “I’m testing it today in Palo Alto,” replied Musk to a Twitter comment asking for updates regarding the Steam integration.
Musk, however, did not share a new tentative date for the demo. Tesla’s AI day on September 30th might be a good day to show off the integration.

Steam integration would drastically improve Tesla’s entertainment system appeal among potential and current buyers, and considering Steam’s vast library of titles, it would make Tesla developers’ task easier, as they wouldn’t have to port titles individually to be playable in the vehicle.
Currently, Tesla’s infotainment system hosts roughly 20 games in the Tesla Arcade app. These apps range from mobile titles like the Beach Buggy Racing 2 and Fallout Shelter to arcade games like Asteroids.
