As long as net connections at both ends are "good", Steam users can now play games on their computer from anywhere else, per a March 14 update to the Steam Community website. Most HEXUS regulars will already be aware of Steam Link (and the earlier hardware-only solution) which facilitates Steam gaming on the same local network as your Steam library packing PC. To jump in on the mobile action Steam have announced their Steam Link Anywhere and have a supporting Android app ready. You could only stream games on your local home network, which sort of defeated the objective of having it on your smartphone.
The Steam Link app launched on Android almost a year ago, but there were some restrictions with it. First and foremost is that users need 'a good upload speed' on the network hosting the stream and 'a good network connection' on the one receiving it - neither of which has been quantified in terms of minimal speeds or latencies by Valve.

The move follows more than a year of innovation which ultimately paved the way for users to play PC games on their smartphone, a less powerful secondary Windows, Linux, or Mac device.
Google is expected to show off a game streaming service later this month and we suspect Steam Link Anywhere is a response to that and other remote gaming solutions.
Merely days before the Game Developer Conference 2019, Valve has made two announcements.
