Valve Announced Steam Link app and the Steam Video app


Quote:
Two free new apps — the Steam Link app and the Steam Video app — are preparing for launch in the coming weeks, both designed to extend Steam’s suite of services and accessibility.

The Steam Link app, slated to launch the week of May 21st, allows gamers to experience their Steam library of games on their Android (phone, tablet, TV) and iOS-based (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV) devices while connected via 5Ghz network or wired Ethernet to a host system (Mac or PC), with Android access initially offered in beta. The Steam Link App will feature support for the Steam Controller, MFI controllers, and more across both platforms.

Later this summer, the Steam Video app is targeted for release, allowing users to enjoy the thousands of movies and shows available on Steam directly via their Android and iOS devices over Wi-Fi or LTE. In direct response to customer feedback, it will offer the ability to enjoy content in offline and streaming modes.

Like we needed more ways to browse all the shitty shovelware that makes up the bulk of Steam's store these days.

Would be super excited for this if I had anything newer than my now ancient Iphone. But I do love the wired Steam Link with my giant 4k tv. You aren't restricted to Steam games so everything on the PC I'm able to play through the tv. My entire GOG library (currently going through Witcher 3) and older adventure games like Blade Runner and The Dig to Brutal Doom with hundreds of megawads and even classic console emulators run brilliantly. Looking at it I think the majority of games I use on it are non-Steam games.
