Valve's Steam Link App Now Available for Android in Beta

Download Steam Link beta and start playing your PC games on an Android device

Steam Link app now available for Android, iOS version still pending Apple review

First of all, you'll have to download the Steam Link beta app from the Google Play Store. While it is not to be confused with the Steam Link gadget, in practice it more or less does the same thing where users can stream their games on Steam to their mobile devices via the app so that they can play PC games on their phones.

If you've been dreaming of playing your favorite PC games on the toilet without actually bringing your desktop into the bathroom with you, you're in luck.

To get up and running, your PC with the Steam Library on it has to be connected to your router via an Ethernet cable.

Steam Link app now available for Android, iOS version still pending Apple review

Since it's just streaming your PC's desktop while using Steam's existing Big Picture mode as a convenient UI, you can't use the host computer while using the app. An iOS version has been promised, but it may only appear once the Android beta has ended.

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

Steam Link originally launched in 2015 as a hardware peripheral that could stream Steam content from a PC to a TV set wirelessly. Thankfully, the Steam Link app has built in support for the Steam Controller, but support is otherwise inconsistent. 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. Not all options can easily hook up to Android and iOS devices, and one keyboard I regularly use with my iPad wasn't recognized by the Steam Link app at all.
