As of right now, only Raspberry Pi, devices running Android, and the discontinued but still usable Steam Link hardware can support the Steam Link Anywhere beta. Their "Steam Link" streaming boxes can hook up to various displays (such as your living room TV) to grant you access to your entire Steam library from the comfort of your couch.
Steam Link Anywhere means that as long as your internet connection is stable and you don't mind having a computer running while you're out, you should theoretically be capable of playing games literally anywhere.More news: Gunman opens fire at New Zealand mosque, several casualties
The Steam Link app launched on Android almost a year ago, but there were some restrictions with it.
Game streaming is becoming more and more popular as time goes on. You'll also need to be enrolled in the Steam client beta, and have the latest version installed. You can do this at the computer itself or you can use a remote desktop app to do it from wherever you might be.
Steam Link Anywhere promises a more versatile experience, one that you can take with you. well, anywhere, and doesn't require additional hardware.More news: Chancellor calls for cross-party compromise — UNITED KINGDOM Brexit
While Microsoft and Google are getting ready to duke it out over their cloud gaming services, Valve still has a foot in the market.
Steam Link Anywhere is an update for the dongle which allows it to stream games from any PC. You'll be given a four digit code to pair the two devices, and Steam will then run a bandwidth test, starting at 5mbps and going all the way up to 100mbps. 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.More news: Michael Bennett On New England Trade: "I Used To Hate The Patriots"
