Netflix is ​​testing streaming games on smart TVs

Not everyone knows that you can also play games with your Netflix subscription. Open the Netflix app on your phone and tablet and you’ll have access to a wide range of games, including games based on series like Stranger Things. In 2021, the streaming service kicks off with Netflix Games with a total of five games on offer. There are already more than 90 games to play for subscribers. From casual puzzle games to true 3D titles. However, Netflix is ​​more committed to gaming, because testing of game streaming on smart TV has now begun.

The rumor circulated earlier this year. Even now you can play games on your smartphone or tablet. In the Netflix app on your TV, you don’t see the Games option at all. This is why not many people know that you can play games with your Netflix subscription. That may change soon, though, because a test group in Canada and the UK can now play the games “Oxenfree” and “Molehew’s Mining Adventure” via TV and across Windows PC and Mac.

A dedicated controller app for Netflix games

You don’t have to download anything with this type of game, because you are streaming the games. Netflix is ​​releasing a dedicated console app so you can use your smartphone as a console. After successful testing, Netflix Games Streaming is planned to be available for LG and Samsung Smart TVs, Chromecast with Google TV, Nvidia Shield, and Amazon Fire TV, with more devices to be added later. Nothing is known about AppleTV at this time.
