Netflix on Tuesday released a Netflix Game Controller app for the iPhone and iPad, which will allow users to play Netflix games on their TV sets. The App Store description says the Game Controller app will pair with a TV for playing Netflix games using an iPhone or iPad.
Coming soon to Netflix. Play games on your TV with the Netflix Game Controller. This Game Controller app pairs with your TV and allows you to play games on Netflix using your phone or mobile device.
Currently, Netflix games are limited to being played on the iPhone and iPad, with no way to play the games on the Apple TV or smart TV platforms. While the app doesn’t do anything right now, the App Store description for the app says games on your TV are “coming soon to Netflix.”
The app is rather simplistic, sporting a directional controller on the left side of the iPhone’s display, as well as A, X, Y, and B action buttons on the right side of the display.
Netflix began offering games back in 2021, and no offers over 50 titles. Access to the games is included with your Netflix streaming subscription.
