Steam Now Lets You Stream Games From Anywhere

Valve extend Steam Link out of the home and networking API to all developers Steam Link Anywhere update allows you to stream games on any PC

"Steam Link Anywhere allows you to stream games to your Steam Link from any computer running Steam", Valve says, noting that the only requirements are a "good upload speed" for the host computer and that the Steam Link device has a solid network connection.

The service is free to all who use Steam Link or the Steam Link app, and is now in beta.

This means you can play your Steam games on a PC not tied to your network.

A new version of Valve's Steam Link gives players the ability to remotely access their Steam libraries without requiring the two machines to be on the same wifi network.

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

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

Steam Link Anywhere is an update for the dongle which allows it to stream games from any PC.

This streaming of games is one of the use cases for 5G.

Valve did not state the exact specifications required to stream at various resolutions, but added that it would continue to improve the Steam Link Anywhere experience. Go to the Steam Link computer settings and select "Other Computer".

Remember that both the Steam client and the Steam Link Android app are in beta, so if this doesn't work for you (or doesn't work that well) don't be too surprised.

You'll need to be in the beta branch of Steam to get the update, but you can find instructions on how to enable that here. This should (in theory) lighten the cost load for midsize and small developers, making it possible for them to host multiplayer games without having to worry about some of the big network pains, like latency, on a far-less-than AAA budget.
