Netflix games are getting more social

Netflix has started testing “game handles” on some of its titles.

The company has steadily increased its commitment to the mobile gaming market over the past year. He started throwing some Strange things links in August 2021, then began adding more titles, and then began acquiring dedicated mobile game development studios.

Now, it is reportedly preparing to make some improvements to the game’s platform. Steve Moser says that he discovered references to the feature in the Netflix mobile app. The company reportedly describes a “game identifier” as “a unique public name for playing games on Netflix.”

But it turns out that Netflix has been testing these game-specific usernames for a while. TechCrunch reports that Netflix introduced game identifiers to a title, Into the Breach, on July 19. Since then the experiment has expanded to Bowling Ballers, Mahjong Solitaire and Heads Up!

However, it doesn’t make sense to introduce game IDs on their own, and Moser says that information from Netflix’s mobile app suggests that it plans to use these public monikers “for invites to multiplayer games and on leaderboards” in its growing catalog of games. mobile devices. Titles

“We are always looking to improve our members’ experience on the service and are exploring different features to enrich the Netflix mobile gaming experience,” a Netflix spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We have nothing else to share at this time.”
