In all these cases, however, Steam In-Home Streaming has one major disadvantage, and it's right there in the name: The streaming can only happen in the home, on a local area network - preferably wired, Valve's recommendations explain, to prevent bandwidth starvation and latency issues.
Steam says that, predictably, this will only work if your computer that is being used to stream the games has a decent upload speed, but if it does then you should be good to go.
Valve is launching the Steam Link Anywhere feature, which allows you to stream games away from home.
Less glamorous than cross-network gameplay, the boring-sounding news about the addition of new APIs to the Steamworks SDK is actually quite notable: The extensions give developers access to Steam's network backbone and packet management skills - honed via its DOTA 2 and Counterstrike: Global Offensive experience - for multiplayer games.
A beta update to Steam Link rolled out earlier this morning, adding support for "Steam Link Anywhere". Initial compatibility with PCs running the Steam client software was expanded by the creation of a dedicated low-priced microconsole dubbed the Steam Link in 2015, pre-installation on selected smart TVs in 2016, and finally Android and iOS mobile devices in 2018. Go to the Steam Link computer settings and select "Other Computer".
Valve's announcement of Steam Link Anywhere was pretty short and sweet. For Android users you need to be on the beta version that is from March of this year.
