Netflix Globally Rolls Out Mobile Games To Subscribers

Netflix globally rolled out its mobile games to its subscribers.

On Tuesday, Netflix globally rolled out its mobile games to subscribers with Android devices after making its debut in Poland.


The Netflix app can be used in order to find games as an individual download and confirm the Netflix account credentials before loading them.

Some of the games needed an active internet connection in order to keep playing, but there were some games that worked completely offline.

In such a case, however, subscribers will still need an internal connection in order to confirm one’s Netflix credentials at the time of loading the game.

Interestingly, Netflix’s new game feature for the app also supported multiple and simultaneous logins, depending on one’s account type as it basically worked the same as the streaming service.

This means that users can log in and play games simultaneously until an account’s maximum devices limit was reached. Once the maximum device limit was reached, subscribers will get an alert for the same, similar to how it worked for video streaming.

The games coming to the app included two smartphone-friendly games based on “Stranger Things” services and three arcade-y tap-action games.

Those games were all previously launched on smartphone storefronts. However, they have been updated as a part of Netflix Games in order to work without any upfront costs or hidden microtransactions.

Here is the list of games coming to the Netflix app:

  • Stranger Things 3: The Game
  • Shooting Hoops
  • Card Blast
  • Teeter Up

Gizmochina reported that Netflix has announced that its gaming services will be available in more than 190 countries, including the United States.

Subscribers will still need to own either an Android-based tablet or smartphone in order to play games on the app.

Do note that subscribers will need an active Netflix subscription in order to play games and the company noted that there were no additional fees, ads, or microtransactions.

As noted, Netflix’s gaming service was currently limited to Android devices but the company said that iOS support will be available in the coming months.
