Steam Games on Mobile Coming This Month
Today, Value announced to mobile apps that’ll be hitting virtual stores “in the coming weeks”. The apps are intended to allow you full access to your Steam library on the go, with support for mobile play.
First is the Steam Link app which launches the week of May 21, with support for Apple devices including an iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV. Andriod support will “initially be offered in beta” so there’s no clear release date there. The app will allow you to use 5Ghz wifi or ethernet to stream games from your Steam library to your mobile device. Currently, the app will support a Steam controller, but Value says support for more controllers will be included at launch.
Additionally, the Steam Video app has a release date later this Summer. You can watch any video included in your Steam library from the app via wifi or LTE. You can also download content for offline viewing if you have the bandwidth to do so.
