We already knew that Netflix is planning to branch into gaming, and it’s taken another big step forward. Today, the streaming giant announced that subscribers with an Android device can now try out its gaming service. Unfortunately, this feature is currently only available to Netflix subscribers that live in Poland.
As noted in a recent Twitter thread, Netflix announced two games available right now in its gaming library: Stranger Things: The Game and Stranger Things 3: The Game. Both games are playable only on Android devices, but are seemingly installed and played within the Netflix app.
Users can expect no ads or in-app purchases when trying out the feature, and Netflix reaffirmed that it will not charge an additional fee to access games in its service. Netflix also notes that the feature is in “its very, very early days,” with more work to be done to refine its gaming service in the coming months.
It is no surprise that Netflix announced the first two games select subscribers can test out are mobile. In July, ahead of its quarterly financial earnings, Netflix confirmed it was focusing on mobile games first. The company also noted that it would be building on top of its earlier efforts around interactive shows like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
That same month, Netflix also announced that ex-EA and Facebook Executive Mike Verdu was hired as the company’s vice president of game development.
