Games were added to the Netflix app for Android and iOS in 2021, giving users another free entertainment option on the platform in addition to movies and TV shows. People can now play games on Netflix from their TVs, Windows PCs, and Macs thanks to the company’s announcement that it is adding games to the Netflix app for TVs and the online platform. In Canada and the UK, Netflix is reportedly “rolling out a limited beta test to a small number of members on select TVs starting today, and on PCs and Macs through Netflix.com on supported browsers in the next few weeks.”
At first, only two games will be playable on these platforms: Molehew’s Mining Adventure, an arcade gem-mining game, and Oxenfree from Night School Studio, a Netflix Game Studio. You will need to download the Netflix Game Controller app, which is already available in the App Store and should soon be accessible on the Google Play Store, to use your smartphone as a controller when playing games on Netflix on your TV. You may utilize the keyboard and mouse/trackpad attached to your Windows PC or Mac device as a controller for playing games on Netflix utilizing the online platform of the video streaming service, which is fairly practical.
The service will only be accessible on a few platforms. Thankfully, Samsung smart TVs are listed among the supported gadgets. Games on TV will also be accessible on Roku devices and TVs, Walmart ONN, LG TVs, Nvidia Shield TV, Chromecast with Google TV, and Amazon Fire TV streaming media players, according to Netflix. Ongoing additions of new devices will be made.
