Steam Link app now available for Android, iOS version still pending Apple review

The Steam link app, which is currently in its BETA and free for all Android users, is now available to download from the official steam webpage, the app allows PC players to experience their Steam game library on their smart devices, as long as they are connected within the same 5Ghz wireless network or preferably a fast wired ethernet connection.

Streaming video games over LTE will not be an option, however.

When we heard Valve was making an app version of the Steam Link, we were surprised - shocked, really, that Valve would have the audacity to shrink the hardware it worked so hard on to the size of a mobile app. Valve's Sam Lantinga said the quality bar for streaming is 1080p at 60 FPS with good quality for most scenes.

While the Android version of the app is available now and will spend the next week in beta before officially launching on May 21, Valve says the iOS version should be coming soon, but is "pending further review with Apple". The app supports the Steam Link controller, or whatever other Android-compatible controllers you happen to have lying around.

It will also allow users to download content for offline viewing, similar to services offered by Netflix and YouTube Red.
