Quite some time ago Valve added capabilities to stream games from one machine on your network to another. It was possible to use this feature remotely but this complicated the setup through the use of VPNs. With the launch of Steam Link Anywhere you no longer need a VPN to use Steams game streaming tech from “anywhere”.
If you plan on using Steam Link Anywhere you will need a good upload speed on the computer you’re using as the host machine. Steam Link could be an alternative to using an app like Rainway or Parsec for streaming your gaming machine. Currently Valve has a Steam Link app for Android so you can even use this feature on your phone. At the time of writing this article, the iOS app was currently blocked by Apple.
Steam Link Anywhere allows you to stream games to your Steam Link from any computer running Steam, as long as your computer has good upload speed and your Steam Link device has a good network connection.
To use Steam Link Anywhere:
Update your Steam Client to the beta build, dated March 13 or newer
Add a computer and select “Other Computer”
Follow the pairing instructions on screen
This service is in early beta, and we appreciate your patience as we continue to improve the service
