You can now use Steam Link nearly anywhere

Valve's Steam Link hardware might be dead, but Steam Link as a service is getting a pretty major upgrade. However, with the introduction of the Anywhere feature, you are free to choose where you want to enjoy your Steam games.

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

The platform is compatible with the Steam Link and any device running the Steam Link application.

Today, Valve announced Steam Link Anywhere, which allows users to play their Steam games from anywhere with a decent connection using the Steam Link app or physical Steam Link hardware.

Steam Now Lets You Stream Games From Anywhere

Now, Valve is improving the Steam Link concept significantly with "Steam Link Anywhere", a program that will let you access your Steam titles from a wider variety of devices.

Steam Link Anywhere, by contrast, has no such restriction: With a name that again leaves little to the imagination, Steam Link Anywhere effectively replaces Steam In-Home Streaming and allows for games and other software to be streamed from any network to any other network - including, potentially, mobile devices on a cellular network.

The feature is in beta for the moment and there are a few caveats to keep in mind, but this is a truly exciting update and helps illuminate just how powerful game streaming will be in the next few years. Go to the Steam Link computer settings and select "Other Computer". It normally works by connecting a mobile device to a host computer via a local network.

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.
