  • Steam’s app for streaming PC games to your phone works like a charm

The app lets Steam users stream their games to an Android device, providing they meet the requirements.

Steam Link is now available in beta on Google Play, Valve announced Thursday.

I was stunned at how well the stream held up when playing games like Far Cry 5, Doom, and Rocket League on my iPad.

Since it's just streaming your PC's desktop while using Steam's existing Big Picture mode as a convenient UI, you can't use the host computer while using the app. With the app, you will be able to stream full Steam games to your mobile devices, but there are some steps to follow.

On the Apple side, we support any iOS device running iOS 10 or newer, and any Apple TV running tvOS 10.3 or newer.

Both the iOS and Android version are free to download and use - Valve has no plans, at this point at least, of charging for any of it.

Speaking of Wi-Fi, Valve heavily recommends that you use the app only on a 5GHz Wi-Fi connection or connected via an Ethernet adapter to your router - try to use a 2.4GHz signal, and you might not get the most optimal streaming experience. To that end, the Steam Controller works pretty well, once you've updated its firmware by plugging it into your PC with a microUSB cable and selecting the option in Steam's settings.

The dedicated Steam Link hardware units support a wide variety of input devices and are specifically designed for low latency streaming to your TV. I imagine Android-based smart TVs share a similar advantage, and this app will stand as one of the best possible ways to stream your PC to a big screen.
