Valve activates bluetooth in Steam Controller

Steam Link Steam Controller Bluetooth

It recently announced the expansion of its Steam Link system that would allow Steam games to be streamed to Android and iOS devices.

The Steam Controller is there to give mobile users a way of playing games like they would do on a PC, Xbox or PS4. In a new post in the Steam Controller Steam Group, though, it seems that Bluetooth Low Energy will be enabled via a firmware update that you simply install through your PC. It requires updating the firmware of the controller which will also wipe out any and all existing pairings, so you have to reconnect the Wireless Receiver afterwards.

How it works is pretty simple.

While the new feature will benefit more gamers in general, Valve advises Steam Controller owners to stick to the original wireless connection whenever possible. It will switch on in Bluetooth mode.

You can easily switch between modes whenever you want as well. But you'll be hard pressed to find a full-sized USB connection on the majority of tablets or mobile phones, and so Valve is rolling out an update that will bring a Bluetooth Low Energy connection to its pad.

All that we can do right now is wait for the Steam Link app to be officially launched and see if Steam users will actually be able to play classic PC games such as Quake Champions and Pillars of Eternity 2 on their smartphones. With emulators becoming more commonplace on Android, you should be able to use your Steam Controller to play a huge variety of games on the go without having to use an OTG cable! Once the process has been completed, you can then power up the controller in your desired wireless mode using the corresponding button combination which will then be remembered until next changed.
