You can now use Steam Link nearly anywhere

You can now use Steam Link nearly anywhere”

As a software successor to the original Steam Link hardware that Valve killed off at the end of past year, Steam Link Anywhere allows you to stream any game from your Steam library to whichever of those aforementioned devices you choose.

Steam Link Anywhere means that as long as your internet connection is stable and you don't mind having a computer running while you're out, you should theoretically be capable of playing games literally anywhere. It should be added that iOS users are now out of luck, as Apple keep rejecting Valve's attempts to get the app on the App Store.

It goes without saying that the most crucial requirement for Steam Link Anywhere is a solid network connection.

After you've downloaded the Steam Link app on your Android phone - Apple are still blocking it from sale - your phone will then search for a PC running Steam on the network. You can do this at the computer itself or you can use a remote desktop app to do it from wherever you might be.

Valve extend Steam Link out of the home and networking API to all developers

Steam Link Anywhere is still in its beta stage, but it should provide gamers with relatively decent streaming experience. The new feature gives users the ability to stream their entire Steam game library anywhere.

Remember that both the Steam client and the Steam Link Android app are in beta, so if this doesn't work for you (or doesn't work that well) don't be too surprised. Regardless, this is an exciting development from Valve that represents just how powerful gaming will be on the 5G networks of the future, with fast speeds and low latencies.

Steam Link was originally released as a hardware device in 2015, but Valve later discontinued it in favor of an app for mobile devices and smart TVs.
