Netflix is continuing its expansion into interactive media by launching a daily trivia show in April called Trivia Quest

The show is based on the popular Trivia Crack online game and will give viewers 24 multiple-choice questions every day in April. The questions cover a variety of topics like science and pop culture. As you answer questions, you help an animated character named Willy rescue folks from Evil Rocky, the villain of the show.

The show will be available on smart TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, computer browsers, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. 

Netflix has dabbled in interactive media before, most notably the award-winning Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. Todd Yellin, vice president of product at Netflix, said in 2019 that Netflix was “doubling down” on interactive content.

In 2021, Netflix expanded into gaming with the release of ad-free mobile games at no extra cost. Netflix has indicated it wants to enter the console gaming market too. 

Netflix isn’t the only streaming service moving into games. Amazon, home of Prime Video, invested in Luna, a cloud gaming service, as well as its own gaming studio. Google, owner of YouTube, has the game-streaming service Stadia. And Apple, which has Apple TV Plus, also offers the subscription service Apple Arcade

While these other services offer their gaming services as standalone products, Netflix’s games come standard with a subscription.
