After announcing its intention to offer video games for mobile devices a few weeks ago, Netflix took action. As the site reported 01net, the streaming video platform announced on its Twitter account on Thursday August 26 that games were now available for download in its Android application in Poland.
“As of today, Polish users can try two Android mobile games: Stranger Things 1984 and Stranger Things 3 », We can read. And if there is still work to be done to perfect this new service, Netflix has still welcomed this first step.
Let’s talk about Netflix games. Starting today, users in Poland can try out two Android mobile games: Stranger Things 1984 and Stranger Things 3. We are at an early stage and we still have a lot of work to do in the coming months, but this is our first step. pic.twitter.com/T2QlTH4xoY

Games to download
As with videos, games will be featured on the app’s home page. By tapping on it, a page describing the game and including a download button will open. But by clicking on this button, users will then be redirected to the Google Play Store.
Indeed, unlike videos, the games available on Netflix will not be playable in streaming. Users will need to download them to their phone like any other app. For now, these first games are only available in Poland. Netflix has yet to say whether it plans to install these games on other platforms or in other countries.
