Netflix has adopted a new look as it introduced its first mobile games on its platform.
The online streaming platform is soon becoming a giant business with its relentless effort at introducing new ideals as an additional way to gain and keep subscribers.
With the new game feature, subscribers now have the option of playing five different games on the app, including “Stranger Things: 1984,” ”Stranger Things 3: The Game,” “Shooting Hoops,” “Card Blast” and “Teeter Up.”
The games which are available in the Netflix app will also be launched first on Android phones and later will be available on Apple’s iOS.
Netflix has been working to go beyond its traditional film and show offerings in an effort to grab more user attention and add value to the service.
The games are included with Netflix subscriptions and will not include advertisements or in-app purchases.
While Netflix said it will build games as a standalone product that competes with other services, executives hope popular characters or games may be able to help with video content decisions in the future.
“Maybe someday we’ll see a game that spawns a film or a series, that would be an amazing place to get to, to really see the rich interplay between these different forms of entertainment,” Greg Peters, Netflix’s chief operating officer and chief product officer said.
