Netflix Launches Beta for Cloud Gaming Service
Netflix has recently announced the launch of a limited beta to test its highly anticipated cloud gaming service. This move aims to revolutionize the gaming industry by allowing subscribers in Canada and the UK to play games on their TVs using the new Netflix Game Controller app.
The primary goal of this beta is to test the game streaming technology and improve the overall member experience. During this initial phase, only two games will be available: Oxenfree and Molehew’s Mining Adventure. However, Netflix plans to add more exciting titles in the future.
To ensure maximum convenience for its users, Netflix has made its beta compatible with various devices. Subscribers can access the gaming service on Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, LG TVs, Nvidia Shield TV, Roku devices, Samsung Smart TVs, and Walmart ONN. Moreover, Netflix plans to add more devices to this list at a later date, expanding availability to a broader audience.
In the following weeks, Netflix will also continue the beta on PC and Mac through supported browsers. This means that players can use a keyboard and mouse instead of the Game Controller app. The streaming giant aims to make games even more accessible for its members worldwide by expanding the service to more devices.
In a related development, last week Netflix launched its gamepad app for subscribers using iOS devices, further demonstrating its commitment to providing an immersive gaming experience across all platforms.
As the beta progresses, Netflix plans to gather valuable feedback from its subscribers to refine the service and ensure its seamless integration into their streaming experience. With its vast user base and renowned reputation, it is expected that Netflix’s entry into the gaming industry will significantly shake up the market and challenge established players.
