After the rumors were leaked in May and after starting a testing phase in Poland that was carried out during the summer, Netflix has just launched video games on its platform that are now also available in Spain, so we reveal to you what are their titles and how you can have them on your mobile.
Video games arrive on Netflix in Spain: these are the titles and how they can be downloaded
Since this week when entering our Netflix account we can see how a small offer of free video games has been added to its catalog , which users can download and play for free. A total of five video games whose titles are: Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Card Blast, Teeter Up and Shooting Hoops , all usable on Android smartphones and tablets.
How to test Netflix games
Those who are interested in downloading them will simply have to use a smartphone with Google’s operating system , log in with their credentials to the Netflix account they usually use and enter their profile. Here it will be possible to see a new section dedicated exclusively to games. In each of them a label will appear, through which the user will have the opportunity to download the video game. Later, at the end of the download procedure from the Google Play Store, the application icon will appear both on the home of your phone and on the American platform. In addition to the novelty, there is good news: for the games in question there will be no advertising and no additional costs will be charged .
The reason for this new feature on Netflix
The experiment carried out first in Poland and now available, has only confirmed a public need that has long been detected by Netflix: to be able to interact more with the platform.
Just think of the success of the interactive movie Black Mirror: Bandersnatch , in which the viewer made decisions on behalf of the protagonist, thus determining the plot itself. A more recent product also assured the authors that the time had come to include video games in the catalog: “Headspace Guide to Meditation” , an interactive series aimed at all those who want to learn meditation techniques and different ways to relax. the mind.
It is also true that Netflix’s flash of genius is the result of unbridled competition with the other giants of the web. The same innovation had been brought by Microsoft and Google: the former launched the Xbox Game Pass subscription service in 2017, while the latter, in 2019, gave birth to Stadia , a public cloud gaming platform.
