Netflix Gaming Service

The first thing that users need to is that the games would be available in the Netflix app on Android phones and tablets only (for now). At launch, only these five games would be available:

  • Stranger Things: 1984
  • Stranger Things 3
  • Shooting Hoops
  • Card Blast
  • Teeter Up

But Netflix plans to add more games to the roster gradually. The service will be available in over 190 countries including the US and Canada. But let’s discuss other important questions here.

Is There An Additional Fee For Netflix Games?

No. All you need is an active Netflix subscription to its streaming service to access the games. There are no ads, additional fees, or microtransactions in the games.

How To Play Games On Netflix App?

  • Login to the Netflix app
  • Access Netflix Games from the homepage or the games tab
  • Select the game you want to to play
  • Download the game via your device’s app store
  • Play the game through the Netflix app

Please note that after selecting a title, you will be directed to the Google Play Store to install the games. But to sign in and play the game, an active Netflix membership is required.

Other Netflix Games FAQs

While some mobile games may require an internet connection, others can be played offline.

Yes, every profile on a Netflix account will be able to access the games separately.

6. Can Netflix Games be accessed on multiple mobile devices?

All members will be able to play games on multiple mobile devices through an active Netflix subscription until you hit your device limit.

6. Can I use controller for Netflix Games?

Unfortunately, no wireless controller or mobile controller can be used to play Netflix Games as the app uses touch controls only.
