Valve's Steam Link Mobile App Has Problems, but It's Also Crazy Cool

Steam Link app now available for Android, iOS version still pending Apple review

Steam Link app advanced settings

Following its announcement earlier this month, a beta version of Valve's Steam Link game streaming service has arrived on the Google Play store.

You can now test your setup to see if you can play Steam games on your Android smartphone using Steam Link.

When we heard Valve was making an app version of the Steam Link, we were surprised - shocked, really, that Valve would have the audacity to shrink the hardware it worked so hard on to the size of a mobile app.

It is possible to play on your Android TV set-top box as well.




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. When it does launch, it will reportedly support any device running iOS 10 or newer, and any Apple TV running tvOS 10.3 or above. This means that gamers with Android devices will be able to take it for a spin, but note that since the app is in beta, it means that there might be some kinks that have yet to be worked out, and features that aren't necessarily guaranteed to make the final cut. In addition to that, if you want to stream to your mobile device, it needs to be connected to a 5GHz Wi-Fi network. Naturally, the best experience will come when paired with a separate Bluetooth controller (or the official Steam Controller), and don't worry, there are plenty of those on the market.

Compatible with devices running at least Android 5.0, the application is neatly designed.

List of supported controllers will be released soon, as per Valve.
