Do you only like to play games on mobile, but still want to play triple A titles? Great news! Valve is releasing a new app that lets you do just that. Valve will release the Steam Link app on May 21, which will grant gamers access to their Steam library and play games on their mobile devices.
The app will come for both Android and iOS devices (phones, tablets, TVs) and these have to be connected to a system (mac or PC) via either 5Ghz network or an Ethernet cable. The system is of course required to have Steam installed in order for this to work. Valve has said that the Steam Link app will be compatible with the Steam Controller, MFI controllers, “and more across both platforms”. This last bit indicates that they are probably still developing support between the Steam Link app and some other controllers and that we can see expect the app to support more controllers in the feature.
Valve has also announced that they will be releasing another app later this summer called Steam Video, with which you will be able to access the movies and TV-shows you bought on Steam and watch them directly on your mobile devices. All you need is a Wi-Fi or LTE connection and you’re good to go. In response to customer feedback that they received the app will come with both an offline and a streaming mode.
