Steam Link App Now Available On Android In Beta

Steam Link App Now Available On Android In Beta”

Earlier this month, Valve announced it was working on a Steam Link app for Android and iOS.

The good news is that if you were looking forward to the launch of the app, you'll be pleased to learn that it is now available on Android in beta form.

I was stunned at how well the stream held up when playing games like Far Cry 5, Doom, and Rocket League on my iPad. With it, you can play your collection of Steam titles on your smartphone, provided you've a powerful computer to run said games and you're under the same roof.

Valve released its beta for the Steam Link application, its streaming platform, on Android devices last Thursday, May 17. But while the Android devices can also connect PS4 controllers over Bluetooth and the physical Steam Link has USB ports, iOS devices seem to be severely limited. For streaming on TV, your gaming PC and TV must be connected to the same network.

When we heard Valve was making an app version of the Steam Link, we were surprised - shocked, really, that Valve would have the audacity to shrink the hardware it worked so hard on to the size of a mobile app. The app allows you to stream PC games to your mobile by connecting the PC to your mobile via a 5GHz Wi-fi network or wired ethernet connection. Thankfully, the Steam Link app has built in support for the Steam Controller, but support is otherwise inconsistent. Other Bluetooth-enabled controllers should work, too, but Valve hasn't posted a comprehensive list of supported controllers just yet. I got to test out the iOS version of the app this week, and I've compiled my impressions here.
