Xbox Cloud Streaming in Tesla Model Y

Update 2: Sept 3 2023: This method is reported to be working again as of software version 2023.26.9!

Update 1: June 29th 2023: This method no longer works. Games will not launch. Potentially a browser compatibility issue that may or may not be fixed with a future update to Game Pass or the Tesla browser.

This was a fun thing to play around with for an afternoon. Xbox Game Streaming (XCloud) running on a Tesla Model Y. I was parked up in my driveway, and connected to WiFi. I have not tested this thoroughly over the cars mobile data connection yet. I imagine for games that require fast reaction, it won’t be suitable. But for turn based, or slower games e.g.: Pentiment, it should be acceptable.

The controller i’m using is the Hyperkin Duke for Xbox. (USB-C, wired).

Scroll down to see what you’ll need to set this up!

What you will need:

  • A Tesla (lol)
  • Wired Gamepad (USB-C)
  • Xbox Game Pass
  • A full screen browser hack, ( or something like
  • Your login details for your Xbox/Microsoft account
  • Some patience while everything loads.

Using a full screen browser exploit (one of the sites above), make sure you hit ‘Go Fullscreen’. This opens the native Tesla YouTube app (this is normal). Click ‘Go to site’. When it loads, look for the ‘Xbox’ option. Follow the instructions to sign in to your account and start gaming.

I have been using this religiously but it recently stopped working. When you clio a game to play, after the space ships you see the xbox logo appear then the screen just goes black. Is yours still working?! I have reset car and everything, still black screen 🙁

Thanks for the heads up!

I will check this out today/tomorrow and see if I’m getting the same issue. It’s been a while since I tried this.

I’ve tested this and can confirm these issues, games will no longer launch.

I’ve updated the post to say that this method no longer works. It may be due to a Game Pass update or the Tesla browser might need an update, fingers crossed it gets fixed.

why do you seem to be the only place I can find anyone else bitching about this. WTF am I supposed to do on lunch break now without my xbox games? Socialize? I think not.

If anyone still actually uses the hellhole that is twitter, shoot a tweet at Musk and hope for the best I guess
