Yes, you read that correctly. Strangely enough, you can now play games on Netflix. The streaming giant announced a mobile gaming feature is being added to the mobile app, and honestly, we are so confused. 

Netflix is the world's most popular streaming service with over 200M subscribers, but it seems as though the platform is branching out into, er, gaming. Just last week the streaming platform announced an expansion of the service that will allow subscribers to play a range of games, with some games even being based on series on the streaming site, such as Stranger Things. Even though the games sound super cool, the internet is completely baffled by the news. Want to stream but have nowhere to watch?
