By then, members were able to play only five mobile games — Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo and Rogue Games) and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop).

Last month, Netflix expanded cloud gaming by opening a new studio in Southern California.

Moreover, in August, the platform was working on features that would let customers play its mobile games against one another and rank themselves on gaming leaderboards.

Recently, Netflix’s VP of games, Mike Verdu, hinted that the company is planning to expand its gaming catalog to PC and even cloud gaming. As per his statement, “We’re very seriously exploring a cloud gaming offering so that we can reach members on TVs and on PCs. We’re going to approach this the same way we did with mobile, which is start small, be humble, be thoughtful, and then build out. But it is a step we think we should take to meet members where they are on the devices where they consume Netflix.”

For the unversed, Netflix recently announced a new feature that will allow users to remove unwanted people from using their accounts. They can now log out separately from different devices.
