Following months of hype, Netflix Games are finally live on Android, and that too, globally! So, here is what you need to know about the release!
In the second quarter of 2021, Netflix, the global leader in the OTT industry, announced plans to enter the gaming industry. The announcement was received positively and developed major hype behind itself. Today, after almost 6 months since the announcement and the countless tests which followed it, the service has finally gone live. Well, at least for Android users. iOS users, however…probably need to wait a bit more.
What’s included in Netflix Games:
So, since the games are now live, there might be many questions in your mind like which games are there? How do you play them? Do you have to pay a premium to play them? As the professor would put it, this is where we come in. We’ll help you with these answers. On the day of the launch, Netflix Games comes with 5 exclusive games, which are:
- Stranger Things: 1984
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
- Shooting Hoops
- Teeter Up
- Card Blast
This sounds like a pretty exciting lineup! Now, how do you play them? The games will be featured in a separate section in the Netflix app, so you can head over to it as soon as it arrives in your Netflix app! Other than this, you can also download the games from the Play Store, and when you launch the app, it will ask you to login into your Netflix account. Hopefully, that last sentence answered the third question, but if not then here goes. The games are add-ons to your already existing Netflix account. Therefore, you do not have to pay a single penny to get access to them…well at least currently. The games also do not have any ads or in-app purchases.
There still might be many other questions in your mind regarding the releases, and you are more than welcome to ask them in the comments section!
How to download:
Although the games will be included in the Netflix app, you can also download them separately from here. Needless to say, the link is only for Android users but to those of you who are reading this on an iOS device, be sure to check our website regularly, so that you can get your hands on the games as soon as they go live for iOS!
To conclude, this was one of the biggest days of the mobile gaming calendar in 2021, and it was just as great as we expected…at least for Android users. All the games are not fantastic but still, the whole experience is pretty fascinating. Furthermore, Netflix is working hard to bring more games and incorporate them into the Netflix app. Along with this, Netflix is also releasing a game based on Squid Games soon! A game on the biggest show in the platform’s history is super exciting news! Now, finally, tell us what you think about Netflix’s first step into the gaming industry?
