Netflix has now expanded testing of its cloud gaming service to the United States. As reported in August, Netflix rolled out testing for the feature in the UK and Canada.
The announcement post from August has now been updated with the message “We are now beginning to roll this limited beta test to the US.”
The limited beta will be restricted to a small number of users. Currently, only two Netflix games—Oxenfree and Molehew’s Mining Adventure—are available via the cloud streaming beta. Cloud streaming allows Netflix users to play these games on their TV or computer using their smartphone as a controller via a dedicated app.
During the U.S. trials, Netflix will test its game-streaming technology and work to enhance the end-user experience. As the trials progress, the company plans to expand support for additional devices.
This expansion into cloud gaming marks Netflix’s commitment to diversifying its offerings and providing its members with more entertainment options beyond traditional TV shows and movies.
