Some lucky Netflix users can now game
Some very lucky Netflix fans get the chance to try something totally new. The popular streaming company has just announced that it is starting to test its gaming service that will allow users to play titles on their phones and tablets as part of their monthly subscription.
Netflix announced it was entering the gaming market in July, but this is the first time it will actually be made available to the paying public.
Now, before you get too excited and start thinking about ditching your PlayStation or Xbox, this is just a test for now and it’s only available in Poland. There are also only two games available at launch, including Stranger Things 1984 and Stranger Things 3. If successful, however, we can expect a wider Netflix gaming rollout in the coming weeks and months with a whole library of titles available for free. cost.
Announcing the news, a Netflix spokesperson said: “Starting today, members in Poland can try Netflix mobile gaming on Android with two games — Stranger Things 1984 and Stranger Things 3 — all as part of their membership.

“It’s still very, very early days and we’ll be working hard to deliver the best possible experience in the coming months with our no ad, no in-app purchases for gaming approach.”
The test also revealed how this new service will work on Android devices, showing those who use it the games available on their homepage.
From here, they can tap on the title they want to play with a link and then push them to Google’s Play Store.
This is where the game can be downloaded, which means it will not be streamed over the internet.
While this preview has now been officially released, there’s still a lot we don’t know. Netflix has not confirmed which games will be included, or how many. There are also no details on whether Netflix plans to make its own games, just as it has done with movies and shows. But the idea is sure to thrill fans of Netflix’s crowd-pleasing original shows.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Netflix has experimented with gaming. Interactive “choose your own adventure” movie Black Mirror: Bandersnatch was a huge hit in 2018.
And way back when it was a DVD rental service, Netflix put video games right at your door.
With over 200 million subscribers giving it enough clout to pull into big-ticket games, Netflix just might be the best yet — check out this space.
