It was recently announced by Netflix that it is launching its mobile game feature for iOS users; this announcement came just after a week when Netflix launched its gaming title for Android.
The iOs users would be able to enjoy the gaming experience in the Netflix app alongside watching Web series, movies, and television shows after updating the application.
In order to enjoy gaming on Netflix, users of iPhones and iPads must have a Netflix subscription plan. The games do not come with any additional expenses or any sort of advertisement.
The games section or the initial game list in Netflix would only be accessible through the adult’s profile and not by the kid’s profile.
In preventing from letting the kids play the games on the app, an in-app PIN could be set up by the adults to prevent from accessing the games in the adult’s profile.
Netflix on Twitter announced the launch of the mobile game for its iPhone and iPad users on Tuesday.
The company further added that the updated version of the app would be available from Wednesday.

From BonusXP, Stranger Things 3: The Game and Stranger Things: 1984, Shooting Hoops and Teeter Up from Frosty Pop, and Card Blast from Amuzo & Rogue Games, are the five games initially brought by Netflix for its iPhone and iPad users.
In this growing gaming world, Netlfix’s interest in this sector is not something out of the blue, as the company had already announced its plan to offer games during its quarterly earnings in July.
Earlier this year, Mike Verdu was hired as vice president by the Los Gatos, California-headquartered company for its Game Development unit to kick-off the plans.
Mike Verdu earlier worked for Facebook as an Executive who helped its developers to build Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) content.
In the past, Mike Verdu also worked with gaming companies such as Zynga and Electronic Arts.
A TikTok-like feature is also being tested by Netflix to attract young viewers to the platform; this feature is known as ‘Kids Clip.’
This feature is appearing for some users on Netflix’s iOs app, which lets the kids watch short clips horizontally.
