In fact, it can be downright difficult. That’s because Netflix doesn’t include its games directly within the Netflix app, but you still need it on your phone.

Instead, users have to basically stumble across them in their respective app stores. Both Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store host them, and you have to download them from there.

We’ll break down everything you need to know below.

How to change your in-game name for Netflix games

If you have an in-game handle you like to using when playing games, Netflix gives you that option. Here’s how to change your name:

  1. Open the game you’d like to play and when prompted to log in, tap the Pencil icon that says Game Handle under the account you’d like to play on.

That’s it, you’ve now successfully updated your Netflix in-game name. You can also do this from within a game at any time by tapping on your profile picture.

Netflix has a real opportunity here

While it is true that the company doesn’t do a great job of marketing its games (much like its movie and shows), this is honestly a great (kind of) free perk for Netflix subscribers.
