Steam Link Anywhere beta drops Steam Link's local-wifi-only restriction

Fresh off Microsofts xCloud demo and ahead of Googles supposed game streaming announcement, Valve updated its SteamLink app to allow uninterrupted gaming experience outside of your home. With the beta, that restriction is lifted, though Valve notes that both a high upload speed from the host computer and a strong network connection for Steam Link Anywhere to be functional. That's because Apple has already rejected Steams attempts to get the Steam Link app into the App Store, saying that it represents "business conflicts" presumably because Apple is anxious about people playing PC games rather than those from the App Store. However, my T-Mobile data connection at home wasn't fast enough to actually play anything, but I was able to get connected. After that, you'll see an "Other Computer" option when searching for devices with Steam Link.

At GDC 2019, other competitors on this front are expected to show their take on the whole game streaming service. There's been a lot of discussion about what that future means for game ownership, how it will affect users with limited internet, how it affects people with high-end hardware, and so on. The new APIs bring different advantages for players just as engineers by giving access to Valve's own private system for steering diversion information.

If you have all of those things however you should be gaming on the go in no time.

The move follows more than a year of innovation which ultimately paved the way for users to play PC games on their smartphone, a less powerful secondary Windows, Linux, or Mac device.

The Steam Link app is now better than ever. And obviously playing PC games on a PC is the most natural way to play - even if playing them thousands of miles away isn't hugely natural.
