Netflix now comes with video games for its Android subscribers!
Netflix announced five mobile games available on its platform

With offline and online games for beginners or avid gamers 

As mentioned in our previous report, all you need is a Netflix subscription so there are no ads, no additional fees, and no in-app purchases. 

According to Mike Verdu of Netflix, they designed the game for every kind of player. He said,

Just like our series, films, and specials, we want to design games for any level of play and every kind of player, whether you’re a beginner or a lifelong gamer. And we’re just getting started. We’re excited to continue improving our mobile gaming experience and adding to our entertainment offering in the months ahead. 

The company is taking its first step by launching five mobile games: Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games), and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop). 

Allegedly, all Netflix subscribers on Android will see a dedicated row inside the app, they can select any game they want to download. Note that the games are exclusively designed for smartphones and tablets.

The streaming giant also claimed that mobile games are playable already for subscribers around the world. They are offering these games in several languages also so they will automatically default to the preference set in the user's profile. However, the games will be in English if the language is still not available.

For those members using a single account but with multiple devices connected, they can still play. Netflix will notify if they already hit the limit. If this happens, they can just choose to sign out of devices that are not being used. They can also deactivate them remotely to free up a slot. 

Since Netflix knows the value of child safety for parents, caregivers, and guardians, these games are not present on kids' profiles. A PIN can be set up to prevent kids from having access to adult profiles and it will be the same PIN that one must enter to log in and play.

Moreover, the platform also noted that some of the games need an internet connection while some can be played offline.

Excited to try it on your phone? What do you think?
