Video streaming platform Netflix launched its first suite of mobile games for Android devices, as part of efforts to expand its content offerings through the highly lucrative market.
In a statement, Netflix detailed the global launch of five gaming titles yesterday (2 November) available with no additional fees, in-app purchases or adverts.
Titles include two based on TV show Stranger Things; puzzle titles Card Blast and Teeter Up; and basketball game Shooting Hoops.
The games are available in multiple languages and only accessible from adult accounts as a child safety measure. Some can be played offline.
Mike Verdu, VP of game development at Netflix, explained the company wants “to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone”.
A version of Netflix Games for iOS is set to be rolled out in the next few months, BBC News reported.
