You can now use Steam Link nearly anywhere

Today, Valve dropped a surprise update for the Steam Link app. However, with the introduction of the Anywhere feature, you are free to choose where you want to enjoy your Steam games.

As the dream of cloud-based gaming comes closer to becoming a reality, Valve has gained new enthusiasm for the idea of players accessing their bountiful Steam libraries while being away from their PC's.

After you've downloaded the Steam Link app on your Android phone - Apple are still blocking it from sale - your phone will then search for a PC running Steam on the network.

The extended Steam Link service (now called Steam Link Anywhere) is currently in early beta, but accessible to all.

Oakland Raiders replace Jordy Nelson with J.J. Nelson
The departure of Nelson comes after the organization gave him a $3.6 million roster bonus in December. He has 613 catches for 8,587 yards and 72 touchdowns in his career.

Steam Link - which previously only allowed you to stream your games around your own home - will now let you bounce your games to anywhere in the world, under the slightly revised name of Steam Link Anywhere.

In order to access the beta, you'll need to opt-in to the Steam client beta on desktop and have the latest version installed. Select that, follow the instructions, and you'll be set. The new Steam Link Anywhere extends the Steam Link functionality, while a sockets API makes it easier for developers to offer secure connections.

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. Prior to this, the app only allowed users to stream their game on an Android device connected to the same network as their host PC. Part of this is better development tools, but more importantly, Valve are letting developers route network traffic through Steam's own infrastructure now.
