Steam Link app now available for Android

Steam Controller

Both the iOS and Android version are free to download and use - Valve has no plans, at this point at least, of charging for any of it. With it, you can play your collection of Steam titles on your smartphone, provided you've a powerful computer to run said games and you're under the same roof.

What technology is the Steam Link app using to stream games to phones?

Similar to the physical Steam Link, and much to my disappointment, your streaming device does have to be on the same network as your host PC. Available on Google Play, it's created to allow PC games to be streamed and played on smartphones and tablets.

Steam Link now supports Android 5.0 and above and features support for the Steam Controller and other Bluetooth input devices. Thankfully, the Steam Link app has built in support for the Steam Controller, but support is otherwise inconsistent.

You'll also want to use a Bluetooth controller for the most part: touch input is recognized, but it's not ideal, and most games don't support it for actual gameplay (even if it works in menus and such).
