ANYONE with a Netflix membership can unlock a brilliant perk on Android phones.
If you’re a paid-up member, you might be missing out on a seriously fun feature.
You can unlock a cache of premium video games on your Android phone.
It’s included as standard with a Netflix subscription.
Millions of Netflix viewers will probably have completely missed it.
But Netflix has been bundling games into the app for just under a year now.
Go into your Netflix app and then scroll down.
Once you’re a few blocks down, you should see a row titled “N Games”.
“No adverts, extra fees or in-app purchases,” Netflix explains.
“Unlimited access to exclusive games included with your membership.”

When you click on a game and install it, you’ll need to sign in with your Netflix login.
If you don’t have a Netflix membership, you simply won’t be able to play.
All of your progress is saved to your Netflix account, so you can play on an Android tablet and then switch to an Android phone if you like.
And it’s cross-platform, so you can even pick up where you left off on an iPhone.
The only real catch is that you need to have a device running Android 8 or later (or iOS 15 if you’re playing cross-platform on an Apple gadget).
There are loads of games to choose from, with options to suit youngsters or adults.
Some big brands feature, including Stranger Things 3: The Game, Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story, and SpongeBob: Get Cooking.
There are dozens of games right now, and more are being added all the time.
So you might as well try a few, given that you’re already paying for them.
