Video games arrive on Netflix in Spain: this is how they work and these are the first games available
It is no secret that Netflix is working on implementing video games in its application. So much so that in Poland they have been available for a few weeks, although until now we did not know if the company was going to take them to other countries or not. And boy has he done it.
The company has just announced that from today, September 28, all users of the Android app can access five mobile games for free. That is, the games are included in the subscription at no additional cost. Also, none of them have ads or microtransactions.
“The beginning of this adventure”
Los cinco juegos que llegan a Netflix son ‘Stranger Things: 1984’, ‘Stranger Things 3: The Game’, ‘Card Blast’, ‘Teeter Up’ y ‘Shooting Hoops’. They are few, but they are a beginning. In the words of Netflix, it is “the beginning of this adventure”, so we can expect more news to come soon.
How does this system work? When users log into their profile from the Android app they will see a carousel dedicated to video games. By clicking on one of the thumbnails they will access its technical file (with information about the title, screenshots, etc.) and they will see the download button.
Where is the game downloaded from? From Google Play, of course. The game is not downloaded in APK or AAB format from Netflix, but actually, the app has a direct access to the game file in the Google Play Store. From there it is downloaded and from there it is installed on the mobile.
Once the game is installed, users will be able to access the content from the Netflix app (the download button will change color and turn red with the text “Play”). Let us remember that, for the moment, this feature is only available on Android. There is no news about its arrival on iOS.
