UPDATE (November 10th, 2021):
Just a week later, Netflix Games has been expanded to iOS devices. It means you will be able to play any of the Netflix games even on your iPhone or iPad. These games will be accessible from within the main Netflix app. The titles are the exact same ones as the Android counterpart that we have covered in the original reporting.

Original (November 3rd, 2021)
After a bunch of rumors and initial testing, Netflix Games are finally available for everyone around the world. There are currently five titles available for Android smartphones and tablets. The team has plans for the iOS release as well but there is no definitive timeline for that yet. The good thing is that these games are completely free to download and play with no in-app purchases.
The current catalog of Netflix Games includes Stranger Things: 1984 by BonusXP, Stranger Things 3: The Game by BonusXP, Shooting Hoops by Frosty Pop, Card Blast by Amuzo & Rogue Games, and Teeter Up by Frosty Pop. All of these games can be downloaded via the Play Store but starting November 3rd, these will also be accessible from the Netflix app.
The app will list all the games in a dedicated row as well as a dedicated category. It is a gradual rollout which means it may take some time before it becomes visible on your particular device. Tapping on the name of the game will take you to the Play Store so that you can download it. Once this is done, you can choose to play the game either by tapping on the game icon on the home screen/app drawer or directly from the Netflix app.
As mentioned in the beginning, all games are free and part of your existing Netflix subscription. These games can be accessed only through adult profiles and are not meant for kids. Netflix says it is working on more games that will be added to the library at a gradual phase.
