Obviously, you'll also need either the physical Steam Link that was discontinued past year or the Steam Link app.

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 means that as long as your internet connection is stable and you don't mind having a computer running while you're out, you should theoretically be capable of playing games literally anywhere.

Steam Link is available to download on the Google Play Store, except for the iOS App Store. This was only really useful for those times when you want to play a game on your couch. The service works with Android, Raspberry Pi, and the discontinued Steam Link box. You could only stream games on your local network at home. You'll have to opt into the Steam client beta with the date of March 13 or newer, and then you can connect to any computer by selecting "Other Computer" from the search.

Steam Link Anywhere promises a more versatile experience, one that you can take with you. well, anywhere, and doesn't require additional hardware.

Valve's Steam Link hardware might be dead, but Steam Link as a service is getting a pretty major upgrade. For both the host PC and the Android device.

For what it's worth, I was able to get this going without issue on my OnePlus 6T with my Steam library hosted on my Windows 10 PC.

Steam Link running on Android with the touch controls enabled rather than a paired controller. Regardless, this is an exciting development from Valve that represents just how powerful gaming will be on the 5G networks of the future, with fast speeds and low latencies.
