Netflix has around 238.39 million paid subscribers presently (according to a study). And to maintain this legacy, the company is continuously busy doing new great experiments. Now it is stretching its steps towards gaming by allowing users to play games on every device, such as TVs, computers, and mobile.
To enhance the users gaming experience, the company recently rolled out a beta update in Canada and the UK. The brand has selected some TVs to start this beta update, and on PCs as well as Macs through Netflix.com on supported browsers might be possible in the next few weeks.
With this update, the users will get phone-based controls for gaming which will exemplify the experience. Two games will be part of this initial beta test, which are Oxenfree from Night School Studio, a Netflix Game Studio, and Molehew’s Mining Adventure, a gem-mining arcade game. To enjoy the games on TV, the company is announcing a controller, which is the most familiar thing users “Smartphones.”
The users on PCs, as well as Macs, are able to play on Netfilx.com with a keyboard and mouse. However, the company stated that for now, the beta is limited to testing this new technology of game streaming and controller.
Moreover, the games on TV will be accessible on selected devices from the company’s early partners; for instance Amazon Fire TV Streaming Media Players, Chromecast with Google TV, LG TVs, Roku devices and TVs, Samsung Smart TVs, Walmart Onn, Nvidia Shield TV. It is also expected that additional widgets will soon be added on an ongoing basis.
The company offers the games available on more devices. The main aim behind this upgrade is to make games even easier to play, which will enhance the smooth service.
