Following reports of a gaming expansion, Netflix has officially announced that it is expanding its service to mobile games on Android.

ONE Store Beta Now Available

Following reports of a gaming expansion a few month ago, Netflix has officially announced that it is expanding its service to mobile games on Android.

What this means is that Netflix is going to offer mobile games starting later on November 4, 1AM in PH time. As this is the first step in Netflix’s mobile game expansion, games will be available only on Android versions to start. For Android users, they will see a new games tab and games row on their Netflix app.

The initial slate of mobile games available on Netflix include the following five titles: Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games), and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop).

Here’s everything you need to know about Netflix Games:

  • Only a Netflix subscription is needed
    • No need to pay for a separate subscription to play games — there are no ads, no additional fees and no in-app purchases.
  • Available on Android
    • Members on an Android mobile phone will see a dedicated games row and games tab where they  can select any game to download.

    • Members on an Android tablet will see a dedicated games row or be able to select games from the categories drop down menu to download and play.

  • Players Around the World Welcome
    • Netflixmobile games are available in many of the languages, and games will automatically default to the preference set in each Netflix profile. If the language is not yet available, games will default to English.
  • Every Profile on an Account can play
    • Members will be able to play games on multiple mobile devices on the same account.
  • Adults Only
    • These games are not available on kids profiles. If a user has set up a PIN to prevent kids from having access to adult profiles, that same PIN will be required in order to log in to Netflix and play the game on a device.
  • No internet connection needed for select games
    • While some mobile games may require an internet connection, others will be available to play offline.

Netflix has also stated that this is just the start of its gaming expansion. So, expect to see even more games from Netflix soon, and possibly availability on other platforms as well.
