Steam Link Update Offers Game Streaming Anywhere

Steam Link Update Offers Game Streaming Anywhere

It supports the Steam Controller over Bluetooth, as well as other Bluetooth controllers, mice, and keyboards.

Although Valve did ultimately kill off the hardware aspects of Steam Link, the new Steam Link Anywhere feature goes a long way toward fulfilling the promise the project has always centered around. Valve didn't provide specific network requirements but said you'll need "a high upload speed from your computer and strong network connection to your Steam Link device" in order to use it.

Details are a bit fuzzy right now, and Valve's news post isn't helping much.

It's not limited to PCs running Steam, anyway. Previously, you could only use Steam Link from home. And then previous year, Valve made it so you can stream games to your phone-but again, only over your local network. This was only really useful for those times when you want to play a game on your couch.
