Your Guide to the Addicting Netflix Video Games Hiding in Your App
If you weren't already spending all your time on Netflix, you might start soon. Recently, the platform launched a new initiative on the Netflix mobile app allowing users to interact with it even more: Netflix Games. Available on both iOS (versions 15.0 or later) and on Android devices, Netflix Games currently features 12 easy-to-play, mobile video games across several gaming categories, like open-world role-playing, sports, card games, arcade games, and more. Designed to be engaging yet straightforward, none of the games features any ads or in-app purchases, and all are completely free to play with your Netflix subscription.
You can find the lineup of Netflix Games within a module on the mobile app's home page. From there, you can choose to download games that play on your favorite Netflix shows, like Stranger Things: 1984, or classic arcade options, like racing game Asphalt Xtreme or dexterity game Teeter (Up). Each game is suitable for a variety of ages and perfect for a mind-break between marathoning your favorite movies. Even better, Netflix Games is set to continue growing, with more video games anticipated to drop as the year goes on.
