A few weeks back, Netflix announced a trial version of its game on mobile, and now, the streaming platform is ready to make its gaming platform global.
Beginning from today, people using the Netflix app for Android worldwide have access to five mobile games: Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Shooting Hoops, Card Blast, and Teeter Up.
How does it work?
All you need is your normal Netflix subscription to play these. There are no adds, no additional fees, and no in-app purchases. The Android app on phones gets a dedicated games row and games tab where you can select any game to download, while on tablets you’ll see the dedicated games row or be able to select games from the categories drop down menu.
Some of the games need an active internet connection to keep playing but there are some games that work completely offline. However, in such a case, you will still need an internal connection to confirm your Netflix credentials at the time of loading the game.
For shared accounts
It supports multiple and simultaneous logins, depending on your account type as it basically works the same as the streaming service. Once the maximum devices limit hits, you will get an alert for the same, similar to how it works for video streaming.
The games won’t be available on kids profiles.
At the time of writing, it only supports Android operating system, but the company said iOS supports will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
