Soon you'll be able to stream Steam games to iOS and Android

Soon you'll be able to stream Steam games to iOS and Android

Valve Software is getting ready to launch a Steam Link app for Android, Apple iOS, and tvOS that allows PC gamers to stream their library of Steam games directly to compatible devices.

Steam has long offer in-home game streaming between computers, allowing you to install a game on one computer and play it on another using the host computer's resources. Valve also hasn't said what input devices it would be supporting beyond Steam controllers and MFi controllers.

Given the number of Android-powered smart TVs out there along with Android and Apple TV boxes, if these apps work as advertised they just about make the Steam Link hardware obsolete.

Once Valve provides more information on the Steam Link and Steam Video apps we'll let you know. The company did not mention a possible Steam Link app for MacOS.

The Stream Video app lets you watch video content from Stream even when offline.




Also similar to the physical Steam Link, latency and internet connection will likely be an important factor in the quality of streams on either app.

Streaming games from Steam to mobile devices isn't exactly new, as it's already possible via third-party apps.

The Steam Video app did not receive a tentative release date, but Valve mentioned that it meant to release the app sometime during the summer. You have to be connected via 5GHz WiFi or ethernet for this app to work. The Steam Video app will be available sometime this summer. Steam Link was not yet available on mobile devices.

This may seem like a odd piece of software for Valve to create at first - after all, they're likely not going to compete with the likes of Netflix anytime soon - but the company claims it was developed in "direct response" to customer feedback.
