NETFLIX’S VIDEO GAME SERVICE HAS ARRIVED

For the time being, the test is only available to users in Poland, but Netflix plans to expand it in the coming months to include iOS devices as well.

We already knew that Netflix had plans to expand into the gaming industry, and now the company has taken another significant step forward. Subscribers with an Android device will now be able to test out the streaming giant’s gaming service, the company announced today. Unfortunately, this feature is currently only available to Netflix subscribers who are based in Poland, which is a disappointment.

Stranger Things: The Game and Stranger Things 3: The Game, as mentioned in a recent Twitter thread, are two games that are currently available in Netflix’s gaming library. Both games are only available for Android devices, but they appear to have been installed and are being played within the Netflix app.

Users can expect no advertisements or in-app purchases when they first try out the feature, and Netflix has confirmed that it will not charge an additional fee to access games on its service, as previously reported. The streaming service also notes that the feature is still in its “very, very early stages,” and that more work will be done to refine its gaming service over the next several months.

It comes as no surprise that Netflix has announced that the first two games that select subscribers will be able to test out are on mobile devices. Netflix confirmed in July that it would prioritize mobile games in its quarterly financial results, which were to be released in August. The company also stated that it would be building on its previous efforts, which included interactive shows such as Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, in the future.

In the same month, Netflix announced the hiring of Mike Verdu, a former EA and Facebook executive, as the company’s vice president of game development.
