Steam Link and Steam Video Apps Coming to iOS and Android Soon

Steam Link is Coming to Android and iOS Devices

The company is releasing the Steam Link app which will allow users to play games remotely through their phones.

A beta will offer only Android support at first, and your device will have to be connected to the local network through either a 5Ghz wireless or wired Ethernet connection. This week, it's introducing two new free apps: Steam Link and Steam Video, which will both be rolled out in the next few weeks.

At the moment, the Steam Mobile App provides gamers with several features on the go. It'll also come to Apple TV as well as Android TV, which effectively renders Valve's own Steam Link hardware obsolete. Basically, you'll stream the content towards your mobile device.

Steam Link will support MFi accessories, Steam controllers and more on both mobile platforms. I'm not sure I have anything that can connect to the device, but if I could stream my PC games without having to buy another product, I'm all for giving it the college try.




Steam owner Valve has been in the news of late for a host of reasons.

The Steam Link app will be available the week of May 21, while the Steam Video app launches this summer.

It has been clear for some time that Valve wants you to be able to play titles from the Steam catalog without having to be stuck to your computer.

It is not clear how the app will work with say touch control. The app lets you stream Steam's library of movies and TV shows and download content for offline viewing. Meanwhile, the recipient device can be wired or wireless: A desktop or laptop logged into your Steam account (Windows, Linux, or MacOS), or Valve's dedicated Steam Link set-top box.
