Last week, Netflix announced its gaming service but it is made available for Android users only. Once the company announced this, it caused a logical question for many iOS users. They wonder whether Netflix will find solutions for offering games through the iOS app. The thing is Apple requires developers to give an individual screening to every game on the App Store. And this requirement is true for all games regardless of their availability through the cloud.
In this regard, recently, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman in his “Power On” newsletter, claimed that he and developer Steve Moser have seen code indicating Netflix would release all its games “individually” on iOS, through the App Store. Plus, Gurman added that they won’t all be downloadable and playable within the app.
It simply means that the Netflix iOS app will still display the games in the catalogue but once you tap on any of these games to play, it will be launched through a separate app.
Five mobile games have already been included for subscribers as the company is promising more to come. Of the five games launching with the service, two are linked to the streaming giant’s popular Stranger Things series:
- Stranger Things: 1984
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
- Card Blast
- Teeter Up
- Shooting Hoops
Users who want to have access to Netflix Games will need to have a valid Netflix subscription as we know that there will be no additional fees or in-app purchases.
