Netflix said its mobile games are currently only available on Android devices – smartphones and tablets. It is not yet known when this feature will be available on the Netflix iOS app.
Netflix is recognized for its various collection of movies and TV series and original content that includes shows like Squid Game and Money Heist to name a few. Today, the streaming giant has expanded its product portfolio to include mobile games. Netflix announced today that it is entering the mobile gaming market with five mobile games. The list includes Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games), and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop).
In terms of features, Netflix said its recently introduced mobile gaming service is available to all Netflix users around the world at no additional cost through a paid subscription. This is similar to how Amazon provides access to various services, including Prime Video and Prime Music, through a standard subscription.
The streaming giant said its mobile gaming service will have no ads or in-app purchases at all, and that Netflix subscribers will be able to play games on multiple mobile devices from the same account. “If you have reached the limit of devices, we will inform you about this and, if necessary, you can log out of unused devices or deactivate them remotely on Netflix.com to free up space,” the company said.
Another interesting feature of Netflix’s mobile gaming service is that its games will also be available in areas where there is no internet connection, depending on the requirements of the particular game.
In addition, these games will be available in different languages, just like the content on Netflix, and by default, they will match the preferences set in the Netflix user profiles. However, if the user’s language is not yet available, the game will default to English.
For parents who are worried about their kids being connected to these games through their own profiles, Netflix said these games are not available on kids’ profiles. “If you have set a PIN to prevent children from accessing adult profiles, the same PIN will be required to log into Netflix and play on the device,” the company added.
Finally, accessibility. Netflix said its mobile games are currently only available on Android devices – smartphones and tablets. It is not yet known when this feature will be available on the Netflix iOS app.
