Steam Link App For Linux Released For The First Time Ever By Valve

Valve is significantly expanding your ability to share games at home and with your friends for free using Steam Link app.

Valve released a Linux version of its Steam Link app, allowing the connectivity system to work on even more devices than before. This is just the latest in a line of operating systems made available to work with Steam Link.

Steam Link lets you stream games from a computer to a device with the Steam Link app installed on the same local network. This new Linux version means that you can now stream games from a computer to a Linux-based set top box hooked up to a TV, for example.

Valve launched a option to allow you to play video games with mates who don’t have a Steam account. Remote Play Together feature lets you stream games on your computer over the internet so you can play them with friends.

If you want to try the feature which is in beta at the moment, follow the instructions here.

Steam Link Anywhere would appear, at this point, to be the most simple and powerful alternative to all other game streaming services the world over.

You’ll be able to download and load the Steam Link app for 64-bit x86 Linux systems now, available through Flathub.
