Steam Experiences Coming To Mobile Devices

Steam Experiences Coming To Mobile Devices

Streaming games from Steam to mobile devices isn't exactly new, as it's already possible via third-party apps. Like Steam Link, Valve's video app will be available on Android too, but a firm release date has not been announced yet. Steam Link will expand the feature to phones, tablets, and TVs. Like the standalone Steam Link box for TVs (see below), your PC does all the heavy lifting and streams the video/audio to your Android device-the phone is just a dumb screen.

Elsewhere, in today's media release, the company announced a new Steam Video app is also slated for release on iOS and Android later this simmer. Steam Link and Steam Video will release for both iOS and Android, though not at the same time.

Not to be left out, iOS users can also use the Steam Link app on their iPhones, iPads, and Apple TV devices. 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. Phones obviously don't have the luxury of an ethernet port though, so hopefully you have a robust home network and thin walls. Steam Link is compatible with the Steam Controller, MFI controllers and more. Now, Valve is extending their "service offerings" by introducing two apps for mobile devices that will allow players to play their games and watch videos on their phones and tablets. The app will support the Steam Controller and other input devices and will be available beginning on May 21st. Don't get too excited, though, as that'll come with a few limitations.
