New App Will Let You Play Steam Games on iOS, tvOS

Steam Link is Coming to Android and iOS Devices

Those who have already shelled out the cash for one of Valve's physical Steam Link devices (which largely accomplished the same thing as the app) might, perhaps understandably, be disappointed by this news.

Two free new apps - the Steam Link app and the Steam Video app - are preparing for launch in the coming weeks, both created to extend Steam's suite of services and accessibility.

Regardless of how you use the Steam Link app, it will support the Steam Controller, MFi controllers, and other input methods. However, your device must be connected via a 5GHz network or wired Ethernet to a host system (Mac or PC). Android support will launch in beta form.

Valve now plans to release a beta version of Steam Link the week of May 21st. I wouldn't be surprised if the Steam Link's not expected to sell well once you can reproduce that functionality on a tablet or phone. This means that you won't likely be playing games on the go. In addition to phones and tablets, the app will also be available for Android TV.

Steam Link has existed for quite some time as a service attached to a proprietary set-top box and through Samsung smart TVs, but now the service will be available to anyone with a mobile device, free of charge. Did you know Steam offered video content? This app will allow streaming over 4G LTE along with Wi-Fi, so it isn't as limited as the gaming app. The app will be available on May 21, though the Android version will launch in a beta state.

As for the Steam Video App, it will be arriving sometime later this summer.
