Valve presented an expanded version of the service Steam Link called Steam Link Anywhere. It allows you to stream games from your PC to any Internet-connected device that has the Steam client Link. First of all we are talking about mobile phones and tablets running the Android operating system, reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to overclockers.ua.
It is noteworthy that Valve tried to release the Steam app Link for iPhone and iPad, but Apple blocked it in the App Store. Most likely, in the future companies will be able to settle this question. In addition, Steam Link Anywhere will work on any PC with an installed Steam client.
