You can now use Steam Link nearly anywhere

It should be added that iOS users are now out of luck, as Apple keep rejecting Valve's attempts to get the app on the App Store.

You can check out more details about Steam Link Anywhere here.

Steam Link Anywhere faces the same infrastructure limitations as other streaming game services-you won't get anywhere without a fast, firm network connection-but if Valve can get the performance to a reasonably good level without requiring network speeds that 95 percent of the world doesn't have access to yet, it could be a very exciting step forward. Prior to this, the app only allowed users to stream their game on an Android device connected to the same network as their host PC. For those playing games instead of making them, Steam Link is now officially usable outside of home networks, albeit in open beta.

The new feature gives users the ability to stream their entire Steam game library anywhere.

According to the announcement, Steam Link Anywhere is now in early beta and accessible to anyone with beta firmware, or using the Android Steam Link beta app or Raspberry Pi Steam Link app. However, my T-Mobile data connection at home wasn't fast enough to actually play anything, but I was able to get connected.
