Netflix announced today that they are launching their gaming service to over 190 countries, including the United States and Canada. You will need an active Netflix subscription and an Android phone or tablet to play the initial lineup of titles.

Netflix Games will begin to roll out to these countries beginning on November 3. It will apparently be a new section added into the Netflix mobile app that you probably already have installed on your phones. If you don't want to wait, you can apparently just download the games from the Google Play Store starting today.

You will not need to pay extra for these games, so long as you have an active Netflix subscription. There will also apparently not be any microtransactions nor any ads included in these games. Unfortunately, you will not be able to use a wireless controller to play these games. You are limited only to using touch controls when playing through the official Netflix app.

The initial rollout includes just five titles:
  • Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP)
  • Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP)
  • Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop)
  • Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games)
  • Teeter Up (Frosty Pop)
A release for iOS users will be available "in the coming months."

Netflix Games began to test this feature in August 2021 with Poland being the only country to try it out. It then expanded to Italy and Spain in September. Netflix plans to continue focusing on mobile gaming in the short term but may expand to other devices in the future.
