Valve indicates that users should enjoy a satisfactory experience as long as "your computer has good upload speed and your Steam Link device has a good network connection". However, with the introduction of the Anywhere feature, you are free to choose where you want to enjoy your Steam games.
American video game developer and publisher Valve is expanding its Steam Link app with Steam Link Anywhere allowing users to stream games from anywhere in the world.
It's not limited to PCs running Steam, anyway.
Though this extension of capabilities is now limited to the Steam Link device itself, it is expected to eventually roll out to the official Steam Link Android app.
Previously, one could already play games on their mobile phone but only on their home network.
Getting started using the feature is easy enough though and simply requires users to update their client the most recent beta built - noted as being dated at March 13 or newer. Now, with Steam Link Anywhere, it will work outside the home as well. That the device to which the gameplay broadcast worked on the same Wi-Fi network as the computer.
Valve's Steam Link hardware might be dead, but Steam Link as a service is getting a pretty major upgrade. Look for "Other Computer", select it and then follow on the pairing instructions on screen. To install it you go into the settings of the app and change the setting within the "Beta Participation" menu item to "Steam Beta Update".
Regardless, this is an exciting development from Valve that represents just how powerful gaming will be on the 5G networks of the future, with fast speeds and low latencies.
