Netflix has a new strategy to keep up with the concurrence (such as Disney+ and HBO Max) and to give a breath of fresh air to the cloud-based entertainment. And the way to do this is through Netflix Games, a new service for mobile devices included in the platform's subscription. Here you will find everything you need to know about games on Netflix.
How do Netflix games work?
Netflix users can enjoy it at no additional cost, unlike other similar services, such as Apple's Arcade platform. To play over 40 games available on the platform, you only need a regular Netflix subscription, an Android or iOS mobile device and an internet connection to download and install the games. You cannot access it from the desktop version. Just like with movies, access to games applies to all devices linked to one account.
How to find games and play?
- Go to the Netflix application on your mobile gadget (the application must be updated to the latest version).
- Find the "Mobile Games" section on the home screen and click on the "Games" (or "Mobile Games") tab.
- Select a game and click Get Game. The Play Store app will open.
- Click "Install" and give the game the required permissions. The game will download to your device. Click "Open" and start playing!
You can also search for Netflix games in Google Play and Apps Store.
Netflix Games is available for Android mobile devices and iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Required OS versions are:
Android 8.0 or later
iOS/iPadOS 15 or later
Netflix games is not available for children's profiles. All Netflix games have a maturity rating so you can make informed gameplay choices for yourself and your family.
What does the catalog feature?
It seems that in creating a catalog of games, Netflix sought to take target users who are not actually gamers - this is probably due to the presence of a large number of indie games here that resemble films or are directly related to the content of the platform, such as Stranger Things. Many of the Netflix games are exclusive to the platform. Here you will find our TOP 12 best Netflix games:
