Steam Link Anywhere Will Let You Stream Your PC’s Games On the Go
Valve is expanding its Steam Link game-streaming feature in a big way with Steam Link Anywhere, a new service that will allow you to stream your Steam games from your computer to anywhere in the world through Steam Link hardware or the Steam Link app. From a report: Steam Link Anywhere is an extension of Steam Link that will enable users to connect to their PCs and play games from anywhere (thus the name), rather than being limited to a local network. It’s compatible with both the Steam Link hardware and app, and will be rolled out automatically (and freely) to everyone who owns the hardware with beta firmware installed, the Android app beta, or the Raspberry Pi app. You’ll also need to be enrolled in the Steam client beta, and have the latest version installed. Assuming you’ve got all that covered, you’ll see an “Other Computer” option on the screen when searching for computers to connect to via Steam Link. Select that, follow the instructions, and you’ll be set. Valve didn’t provide specific network requirements but said you’ll need “a high upload speed from your computer and strong network connection to your Steam Link device” in order to use it.
