Valve is set to launch a new Steam Link app this month that will enable users to play their PC games on their Android and iOS devices.
The app will be released the week of May 21st and can be used across phones, tablets and TVs. Users will need to connect via a 5Ghz network or wired Ethernet to the host system, such as a Mac or PC.
Android access will initially be available in Beta.
In terms of how users will actually be able to play their games on these devices, it’ll work much like Steam Link already does. The game is powered by the host system - PC or Mac - and then streams that content to another screen.
The Steam Link app will come with support for the Steam Controller, MFI controllers and more across iOS and Android.
It’s an interesting move given the popularity of hit PC releases on mobile in recent times, particularly the likes of PUBG Mobile and Fortnite - the latter featuring cross-play.
On top of this, Valve also revealed it will launch a Steam Video app in the summer. This will let users watch movies and shows on Steam through their Android or iOS device. Content will be available to stream, as well as offline.
