The rollout is beginning on Android mobile phones and tablets, with iOS support coming at a later date. Netflix Games will offer games in multiple languages that will be tied to the Netflix language profile, only resorting back to English as a default if your language is not yet supported. Netflix Games looks to mimic its adult only streaming set-up with “Adults Only” games that would not be directly available to kids by default if a PIN is set up.

Beginning today, Netflix subscribers using Android globally can play Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Shooting Hoops, Card Blast, and Teeter Up.

As with streaming on Netflix, subscribers will be able to utilize multiple mobile devices on one account.
