Netflix Games global release

Netflix Games can be best described as an extended feature for the Netflix mobile app. On Android phones, users will see a dedicated games row or games tab, while on Android tablets, users will either see a games row or select games from the categories drop down menu to download and play. Going forward, Netflix will add more games across genres and for different levels of players, from beginner to advanced. While some games will require an internet connection, others can be played offline. 

Netflix also adds that the games will be available in various different languages supported by the Netflix app. In addition, all profiles on a single Netflix account will be able to play the games. However, in the interest of child safety, the games will not be available on Kids’ profiles.
