Steam Link beta for Android brings your game collection to your mobile

Steam Controller Steam Link beta for Android brings your game collection to your mobile
Sandra Phillips | 18 May, 2018, 16:00

Valve recently announced that its Steam Link PC game streaming service is coming to Android and iOS through a dedicated free app. This means that gamers with Android devices will be able to take it for a spin, but note that since the app is in beta, it means that there might be some kinks that have yet to be worked out, and features that aren't necessarily guaranteed to make the final cut.

Then, you must connect your Android phone/ tablet to your local computer running Steam, but in order to achieve a seamless experience, a connection over 5GHz Wi-Fi or wired ethernet is required.

After I followed all the setup instructions in the Steam Link app on my phone, I was good to go.

Fortnite: Solo Showdown Limited Time Mode Announced, New Star Power Emote Added
Placements in this limited time mode will be specially tracked and determine rewards you receive at the end of the event. You have to play at least 50 matches to be eligible, and only your first 50 will be counted to your score.

List of supported controllers will be released soon, as per Valve. Naturally, the best experience will come when paired with a separate Bluetooth controller (or the official Steam Controller), and don't worry, there are plenty of those on the market. Obviously, we're talking about streaming your games from the PC/Mac to a smartphone, not actually running them from the Android or iOS device. It's a robust option for playing games that don't have built in gamepad support without a mouse and keyboard, but a half-measure for ones that do unless you spend a whole lot of time tweaking and getting comfortable with it. For now, it doesn't solve problems the Steam Link already had (and even introduces a couple of new ones), but hopefully this is just the start of continued support for a cool and versatile tool.
