Stream your PC games from anywhere

Goodbye productivity

You can check out more details about Steam Link Anywhere here. Now, Steam Link Anywhere allows you to stream games, you guessed it, anywhere.

Today, Valve dropped a surprise update for the Steam Link app. This was only really useful for those times when you want to play a game on your couch.

According to the announcement, Steam Link Anywhere is now in early beta and accessible to anyone with beta firmware, or using the Android Steam Link beta app or Raspberry Pi Steam Link app.

The difference between these services is that PlayStation Now and, presumably, xCloud, will be streaming games you don't own via a subscription service model whereas Valve is simply making your own games available to you for free - a model that will appeal to more cost-sensitive gamers and those of us with already-massive Steam libraries. Go to the Steam Link computer settings and select "Other Computer".

Steam Link Anywhere is still in its beta stage, but it should provide gamers with relatively decent streaming experience.

While Microsoft and Google are getting ready to duke it out over their cloud gaming services, Valve still has a foot in the market.

Before Valve killed it off at the end of past year, the Steam Link was the best way to stream your game library from your PC to your living room.

A post from slouken on the Steam Community boards stated that you should be able to stream games to your Steam Link from virtually any computer running Steam. Valve explain the system here, and among the perks for developers are anonymized network traffic (protecting servers and clients from DDOS attacks) and potentially lower pings through Valve's networks.
