Netflix just announced its ‘New Game Handles’ feature for iOS and Android subscribers to take better advantage of the exclusive titles. This feature was being developed for a considerable amount of time through multiple titles such as ‘Heads Up’, ‘The Breach’, ‘Mahjong Solitaire’ and ‘Bowling Ballers’. Netflix is targeting small and grown-up audiences. And is rolling out this feature to all paid members across all major devices. Netflix's new game handles will help create personalized anonymity, enabling ‘freer expression’ in games.
Besides, Netflix subscribers can now receive a unique username for their multiplayer games like Rival Pirates, Lucky Luna, and Dominoes Café. These handles will help other players identify which gamers rank significantly on the leaderboards. Through this handle, the discoverability of players in other Netflix-supported games will be allowed. And it also gives community building a significant boost through user name recognition. Perhaps, Netflix's new game handles will activate quick chat and interaction in-game.
Evidence for Netflix's new game handles has been apparent through the mobile’s app code, with suggested and invite-only updates, and status coming your way. Even with this, Netflix developers didn’t make any official comments. They just said that they were exploring different features to help enrich the Netflix mobile gaming experience. Further, Netflix's new game handles are a welcome feature, as it allows users to play games without revealing their personal information, like actual names or Netflix account details.
To get Netflix's new game handles, you must download any game of your choice and sign through your Netflix credentials. In the case of iOS, you get to select your in-game handle when you launch games like Lucky Luna and Rival Pirates. In contrast, the experience is much easier for Android, as you can navigate to the games tab and create your Netflix game handle. Quick signings can also enable you to avoid repeated password entering.
Netflix's new game handles set the stage for a much more robust gaming experience in the future. Through this, signing will become more accessible, and will make multiplayer friendships more straightforward. Netflix has commented that this feature is still in its early stages, and many small details must be tailored for every user to create a personalized experience. Netflix has confirmed that significant titles like Mahjong Solitaire, The Breach, Rival Pirates, and Lucky Luna will all support game handles.
