Netflix likely to test multiplayer on select mobile titles



Video streaming platform Netflix is ​​working on features that will allow customers to play their mobile games against each other and rank on gaming leaderboards.

According to TechCrunch, starting last month, Netflix quietly rolled out the ability for users to create unique “game IDs” in a subset of its mobile games, including Into The Breach, followed by Bowling Ballers, Mahjong Solitaire, and Heads Up!

“We are always looking to improve our members’ experience on the service and are exploring different features to enrich the Netflix mobile gaming experience,” Netflix spokeswoman Kumiko Hidaka was quoted as saying.

“We have nothing else to share at this time,” he added.

Additionally, evidence uncovered in the Netflix app suggests greater gaming ambitions, including, among other things, the option to invite other users to play with you and a feature that would allow you to check your position on the leaderboards.

The video streaming giant launched its gaming service last year.

In March, the platform added three games on Android and iOS platforms to raise awareness about the lack of safe drinking water.

The team between ‘Frosty Pop and Charity: Water’ is an educational role-playing game that challenges users to trek miles across sub-Saharan Africa to find water while facing poachers, wind storms, and other dangers.
