Netflix wants to be more than just the place to watch shows, and it’s doing so by bringing games to its subscribers.
Starting from today, all subscribers can play 5 new mobile games by Netflix on Android simply by downloading them from the Google Play Store.
The games will also appear on the ‘Games Tab’ on the Netflix mobile app.
For now, the games are only available on Android phones and tablets, with plans to bring them to iOS in the coming weeks.
Unlike the games out in the market today, Netflix’s ones will not have any in-app purchases or advertisements.
It won’t be long now before Netflix begins rolling out their very own “Originals” for games too.
“Just like our series, films and specials, we want to design games for any level of play and every kind of player, whether you’re a beginner or a lifelong gamer”
Mike Verdu, Netflix vice president of game development
