How to Find and Install Netflix Games
Currently, the company isn’t offering Netflix Games as a standalone application and the service is bundled inside the Netflix application. You can find Netflix Games by opening the Netflix application on your mobile device. The Netflix Games icon looks like a game controller, and the tab will be right next to the home button at the bottom (the second icon from the left).
You don’t need to install or download any additional tool or software to access the feature. For those who don’t have the Netflix app already installed, you can do so and access the Netflix Games feature from the application.
However, there are some pre-requisites that one will need to meet in order to play or use Netflix Games. First and foremost, an active Netflix subscription and an internet connection will be required to download and install a game.
Based on the device you own, to install and run games from Netflix Games, you will need Android 8.0 or later, or if you own an iOS device then iOS/iPadOS 15 or later. Currently, all the games in the Netflix Games library can be downloaded from the Play Store or the App Store.
Upon clicking the Get Game icon, Netflix Games will redirect you to the Play Store or the App Store and users will be able to download it from there. After the game is installed, you will be able to find it under the Netflix Games tab in the Netflix app or on your device’s home screen.
Also, Netflix games aren’t available in Kids profiles. You may not be able to find a few games if your profile’s maturity setting is set below the maturity rating of the game, or if your device isn’t compatible with the game.
