Streaming giant Netflix is taking a step further in the world of gaming by venturing into game streaming on TV platforms and the web. The company, known for its extensive library of movies and TV shows, is now expanding its reach to include gaming on Android and iOS devices.
Although Netflix had previously announced its plans to bring games to more devices, the library of games was previously only accessible on smartphones. However, the streaming giant is now testing the feature on TVs and computers as well.
The test will initially stream two games, Oxenfree and Molehew’s Mining Adventure, giving users a taste of what to expect from Netflix’s gaming offerings. On PCs, the games can be played using a mouse and keyboard, while on TVs, a phone-based controller is required.
Netflix’s game streaming feature will be supported on various TV platforms, including Google’s Android TV OS, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku, among others. This move will allow users to seamlessly switch between watching their favorite shows and playing games on their TVs.
However, it is important to note that the game streaming test will only be available in the United Kingdom and Canada initially. Netflix has plans to expand globally in the future, but for now, only users in these two countries will have the opportunity to experience the new gaming feature.
This announcement comes shortly after Netflix expanded its cloud gaming efforts to the United States in mid-October. It seems that the company is determined to become a major player in the gaming world, as it continues to explore and expand its gaming offerings.
With its vast subscriber base and extensive content library, Netflix has the potential to disrupt the gaming industry and offer users a unique entertainment experience that combines movies, TV shows, and now games. As the streaming giant continues to test and refine its game streaming feature, we can expect more exciting developments on the horizon. Stay tuned for further updates from Poh Diaries.
