Last month, we mentioned that Netflix could be working on providing game service, and it seems clear now that gaming will soon play a big role on the platform.
The company is currently testing mobile games as part of its subscriptions. According to Engadget, Netflix is now testing the games publicly for the first time but availability is very limited for now.
"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," a Netflix spokesperson revealed.
Netflix users won't be streaming the games through the cloud. Instead, they will be directed to Google Play Store to download the games when they tap the "Install Now" button on the Netflix app. Alternatively, players can download the games directly from the Play Store but they would have to log in with their Netflix ID. Users will be able to play the games via the Netflix app or their dedicated apps. Netflix is also planning to expand the service on iOS.
Like Netflix said, the gaming move is still in its early stages so we'll have to wait to hear the feedback from those who have tested as well as its availability in Malaysia.
