Steam Link Anywhere Lets You Stream PC Games On Other Networks

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

Steam Link Anywhere update allows you to stream games on any PC

It supports the Steam Controller over Bluetooth, as well as other Bluetooth controllers, mice, and keyboards.

American video game developer and publisher Valve is expanding its Steam Link app with Steam Link Anywhere allowing users to stream games from anywhere in the world.

Details are a bit fuzzy right now, and Valve's news post isn't helping much. By installing the Steam Link Anywhere app onto you Android, Raspberry Pi or even Steam Link device, you might soon be able to access any game installed in your Steam client.

Valve's ongoing project to bring streamed gaming functionality to its users via Steam Link has entered a new phase of development as the company moves to remove limitations that tie service to a single Wi-Fi network. It's hard to tell, and we'll need to do some testing.

For those who own a Steam Link device, details on pairing it with a remote computer for Steam Link Anywhere use can be found on the Steam Link forum.

This streaming of games is one of the use cases for 5G.

The Steam Link set-top box (left) was discontinued in 2018, so Steam Link Anywhere may later arrive on mobile. As before, Valve recommends that users are connected to a high-speed internet connection via a 5GHz frequency.

Contrast that to Google and Microsoft's approach, where they invest in the hardware and you just stream the game.

As you would expect, you will need a strong upload connection from your home PC and a strong download connection for the network you are streaming to.

It's definitely an interesting play by Valve though. That latter part's just physics.
