Netflix launched Netflix Games in November 2021 for Android users at no additional cost, as well as no ads and no in-app purchases.

Netflix has announced a new partnership with RocketRide Games to help expand the number of games available on the platform.

RocketRide Games released two title - Dominoes and Knittens - as part of Netflix Games in December and more games are planned to come to the platform over the coming months. 

"Everyone at RocketRide Games is extremely proud of this new partnership with Netflix," said CEO Louis Rene Auclair. "Having the ability to bring games to their millions of subscribers is definitely a great opportunity for RocketRide Games and for video games studios all over the world."

Netflix subscribers who use the app on Android can play games under the Games tab at the bottom of the screen. There are currently a dozen mobile games available to play.

I don't understand this. Only for Android? Only for download? Obviously isn't not a negative, as it's just an add-on to their existing service at no additional cost. But I don't see how this is particularly advantageous to Netflix's business.

Unless they have bigger plans, and this is just the start of it? But there's a danger even in that. PS Now has lots of games you can download, but because they started as a streaming-only service, many people think they're still streaming-only. Netflix risks the reverse being true here, even if they later expand this service they risk people thinking they're inexpensive download-only games for a limited number of platforms.

Then again, I'm not even sure how consumers are supposed to become aware that this service even exists.

My guess is that the discussion already happened, but Netflix wants full control over its own service so they can reap more of the rewards, rather than incorporate an addition from a 3rd party. Phil even said he sees Netflix as a direct competitor to gamepass, and I doubt things would be viewed differently with Sony either with their own subscription services.

Yeah but it would go hand in hand. If they can get cloud gaming to an acceptable quality or even straight downloads from netflix. Both sony and netflix can profit from it. Might benefit them if they need to go up against gamepass one day. I can't see netflix putting games that would profit much
