Netflix releases mobile games for Android devices
Netflix has announced that mobile games will be available on its gaming platform for the first time on November 3. A total of five games will be playable upon release on Android phones and tablets such as 'Stranger Things 3: The Game' and 'Shooting Hoops'. The streaming company extended its gaming service to 190 nations across the world and its mobile games will be accessible in many languages. The games will automatically default to the user’s Netflix language preference if it is offered.
Netflix will include its gaming services as part of the basic subscription at no extra cost and will not contain microtransactions or advertisements. Moreover, gamers will be able to utilize the same account to play games on multiple devices up to their subscription limit. However, only adult profiles will have access to play mobile games. Netflix asserted that this is to safeguard children and a PIN can be generated to lock adult profiles.
The streaming company aims to bolster its gaming library to target a global audience and appeal to both casual and expert gamers. Gamers who have iOS devices can expect to play Netflix games in the upcoming months. Furthermore, while some games must be connected to the internet, other games can be enjoyed offline. Although Netflix’s gaming platform is in its early stages, the company hopes that it can entice customers with an ‘All-Access Pass’ subscription.
