Steam Link app hopes to blow your mind with mobile game streaming

  • Steam Link is Coming to Android and iOS Devices

In theory, that means you'll be able to play any game in your Steam library on your mobile phone by automatically utilizing the power of your full PC or laptop. The apps will support the Steam Controller, MFi-certified iOS controllers, and a lot more - including mouse and keyboard. The app will be available on May 21, though the Android version will launch in a beta state.

The bigger of the two apps, Steam Link, would allow users to stream games from their PC or Mac to devices ranging from phones and tablets to Apple TVs.

The Steam Link App will be followed by a Steam Video App that allows people to watch Steam multimedia content over Wifi or LTE. While functionality will likely be similar, performance through the Steam Link app probably will not offer the same 1080p, 60 FPS stats of the Steam Link box. Though we won't be surprised to see specific games be disallowed from Steam Link.


Valve's in-home streaming tech will soon be available for Android devices in the form of the Steam Link app. You cannot play on the road. Along with streaming over a data connection, you'll also be to download shows for offline watching.

Steam is making it easier to access your library of games even if you are away from your desktop. It's just a way to watch video content purchased from Steam on your Android devices. But the platform now doesn't have a large enough arsenal to compete with Google Play, iTunes, Vudu, and other digital media platforms.

It is also reported that the summer will be released another app for iOS and Android - Steam Video. Steam Link and Steam Video will release for both iOS and Android, though not at the same time.
