After hearing the grumbling about Netlifx working on its gaming service last summer, the media giant is officially jumping into the space with its top five mobile games. And as expected – with Apple App Store restrictions – Netflix had to launch the game service without iOS support but the company says it’s “on the way”.

Mike Verdu, Netflix Vice President of Game Development, shared the big news in today’s blog post:

That’s why we’re excited to take our first step in bringing Netflix mobile games to the world.

  • Members on their Android tablet will see a row dedicated to games or they will be able to select games from a drop-down list of categories to download and play.

Netflix notes that some of its games are available offline, but not all. Also, games are currently not available when using a kids profile.

Netflix also says it is creating a variety of titles for its service:

Interestingly, in the official press release, iOS support was not mentioned in the work. But the official Netflix Geeked Twitter account says it’s “on the way.” Time will tell if that happened or in what capacity it did.
