Netflix games are now available for iOS and iPadOS. The new game service was made available for Android devices for the first time, but Apple users can now also access it.
Netflix games are now available for iOS and iPadOS
Note, however, that a Netflix subscription is required. There are currently five titles that are already available in the App Store. They are Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Card Blast, Shooting Hoops, and Teeter (Up). In the meantime, the newly announced game Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story, which costs around 10 euros on Switch and PC, will be free for Netflix subscribers.
This news is undoubtedly very interesting, but according to The Verge website, there have been concerns about the release of Netflix games for Apple devices. This is mainly due to the policy of the apple giant.
Netflix had the most ports open
Interestingly, Netflix has managed to implement the applications with practically the same functionality that it provides on Android. Other cloud gaming platforms like Microsoft xCloud, Google Stadia, and Facebook Gaming struggled to overcome the limitations of the Apple App Store. However, there was nothing left but to use web applications. The problem is, the experience isn’t the best.
Apple has been nice to Netflix
Given the weight of the streaming giant, Apple granted special conditions. The streaming service can continue to sell subscriptions, but Apple is entitled to a fee. Google is going the same way. Allegedly less than the normal 30% commission is charged for purchases on Google Play.
The gaming service is available with all subscriptions. However, it comes in stages. As a result, it may not be available to all accounts yet. However, you have no cost or advertising.
As soon as the games are available on our account, a new line for games will appear. The same thing happens with a new tab. However, we also have this option available in the main menu of the categories.
While some of the tracks require an internet connection, others are available offline. Strictly speaking, it is not exactly a service that is based exclusively on the cloud.
