Stream your PC games from anywhere

Steam Link Anywhere lets you play your PC games wherever you like

Previously, you could only use Steam Link from home. The new Steam Link Anywhere extends the Steam Link functionality, while a sockets API makes it easier for developers to offer secure connections. Until, Apple and Steam can works around restrictions with the security framework in iOS, there is unfortunately no iOS Store version of the app as of yet. The service works with Android, Raspberry Pi, and the discontinued Steam Link box.

Less glamorous than cross-network gameplay, the boring-sounding news about the addition of new APIs to the Steamworks SDK is actually quite notable: The extensions give developers access to Steam's network backbone and packet management skills - honed via its DOTA 2 and Counterstrike: Global Offensive experience - for multiplayer games.

Before Valve killed it off at the end of a year ago, the Steam Link was the best way to stream your game library from your PC to your living room.

'Israel to Face Tough Response If Threatens Iranian Tankers'
Hatami said such confrontation would be considered as "piracy" and warned that "if it happens, we will firmly respond ". Iran's navy has extended its reach in recent years, dispatching vessels to the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden.

Steam Link Anywhere faces the same infrastructure limitations as other streaming game services-you won't get anywhere without a fast, firm network connection-but if Valve can get the performance to a reasonably good level without requiring network speeds that 95 percent of the world doesn't have access to yet, it could be a very exciting step forward.

Now, you should be able to connect to your PC that hosts your Steam library through your Android app. Valve explain the system here, and among the perks for developers are anonymized network traffic (protecting servers and clients from DDOS attacks) and potentially lower pings through Valve's networks. You'll be given a four digit code to pair the two devices, and Steam will then run a bandwidth test, starting at 5mbps and going all the way up to 100mbps.
