NETFLIX comes packed with a number of hidden features that can make your streaming experience top-notch.
The Los Gatos, California-based company began offering its subscription service in 2007 and since then has made a name for itself as the world’s premier streaming service.
Netflix comes loaded with plenty of hidden features that can enhance your user experience
Along with what feels like an endless number of movies and shows, the streaming giant also comes equipped with fun games and other features that can enhance your user experience.
Below, we have compiled a list of the top hidden features that are loaded onto Netflix.
Play hidden games on Netflix
Many Netflix users are unaware that the platform actually contains games, some interactive and some based on popular Netflix original TV shows/movies.
Users can access these games through the Android or iOS Netflix app.
First, open the Netflix app and then type ‘games’ into the search bar.
A wide variety of games should show up, including Stranger Things 3: The Game and Arcanium: Rise of Akhan.
There are also games like Dominoe’s Cafe and Bowling Ballers available on the app.
Just select the one you want to play and click “Get Game” to install it onto your phone.
However, you will lose access to any downloaded games if your Netflix subscription lapses.
Add third-party extentions
One of the parts about Netflix is that it is compatible with hundreds of third-party extensions that can make your experience that much more enjoyable.
One of the best extensions is Netflix Party, which lets you host remote movies marathons with your friends and family.
This extension from Google Chrome syncs up your chosen content to ensure that everyone is watching at the same time.
There’s even a chat feature so you can communicate with each other.
Set a password for your Netflix profile
It’s not uncommon for households to share one Netflix account between several family members.
If you don’t want people snooping on the stuff you watch, you can protect access to your account with a passcode.
All you need to do is log in, and then select ‘Account’ from the drop-down menu in the top left.
From here, select the account you wish to lock.
Under ‘Profile Lock’ click ‘Change’ and then set a password.
Find hidden movies using secret codes
There are loads to watch on Netflix so it can be a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack to find that perfect movie.
Thankfully there is something that can help, with secret category codes.
Netflix’s way of displaying categories isn’t liked by everyone so if you would like things done the old-fashioned way, category codes are the way to go.
For example, if you fancy a food show, put in 72436; for musicals and music-related shows, type 13335.
There’s a full list to try here.
Netflix hosts a number of games on its platform
In other news, the creators of a chilling new horror game say that the title is so disturbing they’ve been forced to censor it on PlayStation.
Apple has announced updates to AirTags following claims that the coin-sized tracking devices are being used to stalk people.
And TikTok has announced new rules, banning users who deadname or misgender others.
