Last week, we reported that Netflix officially rolled out its gaming platform to Android-owning subscribers, but there’s a pink elephant in the room. What about iOS users? Netflix confirmed that its brand spankin’ new gaming arm will arrive on iPhones and iPads, but it would take some time. However, the streaming giant didn’t disclose a release date nor did it explain why Apple is late to the party.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman (via the Power On newsletter) suspects that Netflix may be experiencing some roadblocks with Apple, which may stunt their growth in the gaming market. Unless Apple eases its App Store restrictions, or offers Netflix an exemption, Netflix’s supposed plans for mobile-gaming domination may get derailed, Gurman concluded.
Netflix may be hitting roadblocks with iOS Games app release
Many Android users are already enjoying Netflix’s five new games: Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Shooting Hoops, Card Blast and Teeter Up.
To access these titles, users can tap on the new Games tab within the Netflix app. After selecting a game, users will be directed to the Google Play Store where they’ll be prompted to input their Netflix credentials. Once the game is downloaded, it will be available to play by either tapping on its icon on the home screen or within the Netflix app.
