Steam Now Lets You Stream Games From Anywhere

Steam Link Anywhere lets you play your PC games wherever you like

Their "Steam Link" streaming boxes can hook up to various displays (such as your living room TV) to grant you access to your entire Steam library from the comfort of your couch.

The feature is now in beta and requires a few caveats, but it's still really exciting.

The update is set to hit Steam Link hardware and apps today, though it'll require users to opt into a beta build dated March 13 or later. Now, with Steam Link Anywhere, it will work outside the home as well. Of course, people will need high upload speeds from their PCs and strong network connections to their Steam Link devices to take advantage, Valve said. For those playing games instead of making them, Steam Link is now officially usable outside of home networks, albeit in open beta. To jump in on the mobile action Steam have announced their Steam Link Anywhere and have a supporting Android app ready. You can do this at the computer itself or you can use a remote desktop app to do it from wherever you might be.

New crew launching to space station on Thursday
For Ovchinin and Hague, it is the first flight since an emergency landing two minutes after they blasted off on October 11, 2018. In the meantime, two spacewalks are scheduled in the coming weeks: the first on March 22 with Anne McClain and Nick Hague.

Update: Dec. 20, 2018 - Valve is no longer selling the Steam Link hardware, but it will continue to update and support the Steam Link app going forward. Obviously, you'll need a good connection on both devices to make it worthwhile.

Before Valve killed it off at the end of previous year, the Steam Link was the best way to stream your game library from your PC to your living room. Valve explain the system here, and among the perks for developers are anonymized network traffic (protecting servers and clients from DDOS attacks) and potentially lower pings through Valve's networks.
