Gaming is easily one of the most prosperous industries in the world today. With more and more studios emerging in 2021, Netflix is not planning on lagging behind. The popular streaming platform is now venturing into the realm of gaming.
According to a report by Bloomberg last month, the streaming platform is planning on offering video games on its application. Moreover, these games will come for free alongside the Netflix subscription itself. So, users will not have to worry about purchasing the games additionally.
It goes without saying that the expansion of their realm to gaming will further broaden their spectrum. Netflix is the one of the largest streaming platforms that there is today. Further, because of the ongoing pandemic, Netflix also reported a significant rise in the purchase numbers of their subscriptions. Netflix India saw a significant increase in customer base as well. Now, the popular streaming platform is all set to get into the world of gaming.
Going by the company’s claims, the in-app games will not feature any ads. In addition, the games will not come with microtransactions either. This only makes sense as being a free service alongside the main subscription, customers would quite possibly be let down if they were to make any additional purchases for this.
However, the company will not stop at this and this is only the beginning, according to Netflix. However, for now, the game is limited to Poland and has been released as more of a try and test feature. If the new feature receives positive reviews or blows up, the popular streaming platform will definitely roll it out to other regions as well. Another thing to note here is that, the new Netflix games feature is available for Android devices in Poland. The iOS availability of this feature is currently under wraps.
Further, players can also opt for downloading the game from the Google Play Store instead of streaming it in the app. Now, this is an efficient feature for most regions may not have unlimited internet facilities or high-speed data to support streaming. Besides, cloud gaming is not really popular for the most part either.
