Here come a bunch more gamers using Linux, as Tesla have rolled out a software update that enables Steam in Beta.
Announced on Twitter with a video to show it off, you get access to many thousands of games. This is largely thanks to all the Linux work Valve has been doing through the Steam client, graphics drivers, Proton and more. Accessing Steam has been enabled on Model S & X (2022+) and requires "Premium Connectivity". From the changelog, it mentions specifically people can play anything that is Steam Deck Verified, although it's not clear if they're blocking games that aren't from working. So, it's basically a really expensive Steam Deck with wheels now.
Valve developer Pierre-Loup Griffais also put up a Twitter post on it, showing off a nice clear picture too:
Previously, Tesla got investigated for the Passenger Play feature as the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration thought it would cause a distraction and was a safety issue. To counter it, Tesla disabled it while the vehicle is moving.
