Steam Link Anywhere beta drops Steam Link's local-wifi-only restriction

Steam Link Anywhere beta drops Steam Link's local-wifi-only restriction

Steam Link Anywhere means that as long as your internet connection is stable and you don't mind having a computer running while you're out, you should theoretically be capable of playing games literally anywhere.

This streaming of games is one of the use cases for 5G. Now, Steam Link Anywhere allows you to stream games, you guessed it, anywhere.

A beta update to Steam Link rolled out earlier this morning, adding support for "Steam Link Anywhere". Go to the Steam Link computer settings and select "Other Computer".

The games were adversely affecting the studies and the overall behaviour, conduct and language of children, the notification said. In fact, 16 students have reportedly been arrested in India for playing the game.

Steam Link is available to download on the Google Play Store, except for the iOS App Store.

Steam Link Anywhere was announced ahead of Valve's GDC 2019 talk. Part of this is better development tools, but more importantly, Valve are letting developers route network traffic through Steam's own infrastructure now. Initial compatibility with PCs running the Steam client software was expanded by the creation of a dedicated low-priced microconsole dubbed the Steam Link in 2015, pre-installation on selected smart TVs in 2016, and finally Android and iOS mobile devices in 2018. It normally works by connecting a mobile device to a host computer via a local network.

The new addition is still in beta and requires a few extra steps such as downloading the most recent version of the software on your Android device and enabling the beta build of your PCs Steam client. This should (in theory) lighten the cost load for midsize and small developers, making it possible for them to host multiplayer games without having to worry about some of the big network pains, like latency, on a far-less-than AAA budget.
