Netflix announced last month that it would enter the mobile gaming market and that current users would be able to play them straight away. Netflix has began rolling out two mobile games to its Polish members via the Android app.
Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3 were previously accessible on the Play Store, but with a Netflix subscription, the games are now ad-free.

Today members in Poland can try Netflix mobile gaming on Android with two games, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3. It’s very, very early days and we’ve got a lot of work to do in the months ahead, but this is the first step. https://t.co/yOl44PGY0r
Although you can access these games through the Netflix app, you will be sent to the Google Play page to download them. Netflix now appears to use Google Play authentication to allow the device to play the ad-free version and incorporate the launcher into the Netflix app. We imagine Netflix’s ultimate goal is to allow members to access games straight through the Netflix app without needing to download them.
