Valve launches Steam Link Anywhere beta

  • Valve extend Steam Link out of the home and networking API to all developers

Today, Valve dropped a surprise update for the Steam Link app.

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

Valve has taken the wraps off of its latest expansion to the game streaming app Steam Link, with the whole thing now rebranded as Steam Link Anywhere. For those playing games instead of making them, Steam Link is now officially usable outside of home networks, albeit in open beta. 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.

Steam Link Anywhere, by contrast, has no such restriction: With a name that again leaves little to the imagination, Steam Link Anywhere effectively replaces Steam In-Home Streaming and allows for games and other software to be streamed from any network to any other network - including, potentially, mobile devices on a cellular network.

WTI Crude Oil and Natural Gas Forecast
Continued supply reductions would further support oil prices, which are up about 25 per cent this year at $68 a barrel. But oil prices have been capped by concerns that an economic slowdown will soon start denting growth in fuel demand.


A beta update to Steam Link rolled out earlier this morning, adding support for "Steam Link Anywhere".

Steam Link Anywhere faces the same infrastructure limitations as other streaming game services-you won't get anywhere without a fast, firm network connection-but if Valve can get the performance to a reasonably good level without requiring network speeds that 95 percent of the world doesn't have access to yet, it could be a very exciting step forward.

So, even though the Steam Link is gone, it seems Valve wasn't planning on letting Steam Link's functionality disappear too.

The Steam Link app launched on Android almost a year ago, but there were some restrictions with it.
