We’ve got everything you need to know about Netflix Games, including how to find and play them.

How do games on Netflix work?

Firstly, in contrast to many mobile games on the market, to play all you need is a Netflix subscription. There’s no additional fees and no microtransactions within games – something which many parents will be pleased to hear.

All of the games are available on iOS or Android devices, and users can add titles to Netflix’s “My List” function. While games are available on any adult profile, no games can be downloaded using a Kids profile.

The streaming giant is also currently testing adding games to additional devices such as televisions and computers.

Here’s how to find Netflix games

Via mobile app

One way that you can find Netflix’s catalogue of games is by heading over to the Netflix app on either Android or iOS. From there, users should see a dedicated row of games, with a games tab available on Android, where they can then select a game.

Once you’ve picked which game you’d like to download and a pop up will open with a link to download the title to your device.

Using the app store

Alternatively, you can also search for Netflix games through either the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

As well as the Netflix app, both stores will display Netflix Inc. as the developer. From there you can view the catalogue of games available to play for free through your subscription.
