Steam Games to be Playable on Mobile Devices via Free App

10 May, 2018, 06:57 | Author: Tara Reeves
  • Steam Link is Coming to Android and iOS Devices

Essentially the app will enable streaming via a via 5Ghz network or wired Ethernet. Many might be unaware that Steam even has a video section, but you can buy a ton of different films on the digital service. As for how you'll be playing these games away from the comforting clacking of your keyboard, the app will support "the Steam Controller, MFI controllers, and more across both platforms". The app can also be used to purchase games, chat with friends, and remotely install games to your home PC among a host of other features.

Valve also announced the Steam Video app, which will provide access to Steam's video library on the same platforms.

The Steam Link app will be available the week of May 21, while the Steam Video app launches this summer. As latency is much less of a concern, you'll be able to stream video over Wi-Fi or LTE.

This may seem like a odd piece of software for Valve to create at first - after all, they're likely not going to compete with the likes of Netflix anytime soon - but the company claims it was developed in "direct response" to customer feedback.

Novartis Paid More than $1 Million to Firm Linked to Trump Lawyer
The source also said the payments were for "actual work done", adding: "And it wasn't to pay for access to the president". Clifford was paid $130,000 by Essential Consultants to keep quiet about the alleged affair with Trump.

Valve today announced it would be releasing two new apps for Android and iOS - both of which would allow you to access your Steam libraries from your phones or tablets.

Valve now plans to release a beta version of Steam Link the week of May 21st.

For PC gamers that use Valve's Steam as their primary source for gaming goodness, the company has just released some pretty epic news for those on the go.
