Steam is bringing their game streaming to Android

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

Valve has launched a beta for Steam Link Anywhere, the logical extension to its Steam In-Home Streaming which removes the "in-home" requirement and allows gamers to stream from anywhere to anywhere.

To use Steam Link Anywhere on your Android devices, you'll need to install the app and pair your device with your host PC. There's no indication on when Steam Link Anywhere might roll out of beta and into full release, but since Valve says this is an early beta, that'll probably take some time.

The service is free to all who use Steam Link or the Steam Link app, and is now in beta. You could only stream games on your local home network, which sort of defeated the goal of having it on your smartphone. You'll also need to be enrolled in the Steam client beta, and have the latest version installed. That the device to which the gameplay broadcast worked on the same Wi-Fi network as the computer.

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.

The feature is in beta for the moment and there are a few caveats to keep in mind, but this is a truly exciting update and helps illuminate just how powerful game streaming will be in the next few years. Now, with Steam Link Anywhere, it will work outside the home as well.

If that's your bag, you can get more detailed information at steamcommunity.com, and Valve will be talking about the new feature in-depth at a Game Developer's Conference panel next Thursday, March 21.
