Read All "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.

It's a good thing when you can play your games in more places and soon we'll all be able to stream out Steam games to our phones and tablets. I have a crazy fast 5G wireless router and a wired PC and when that's streaming to the Steam Link on wifi in the living room it's a great streaming experience. Soon my iPhone 6S will be able to play my Steam games and i'll be able to use my Steam Controller to play them? If it works well that sounds honestly pretty awesome and sort of begs the question...
Is Valve Gonna Release A Linux Steam Handheld?
With the Nintendo Switch doing so well and Valve founder Gabe Newell recently saying that they admire what Nintendo does as a company with hardware and software I wonder how closely they are looking at making a competitor to the Switch? Steam now has a bunch of native Linux apps, great controller support and now the ability to stream games that are not on Linux over wifi.
STEAM HANDHELD CONFIRMED?
Hardly, but it's fun to dream.
Also, I have Apple TV I think now I don't need to have my Steam Link connected to my TV anymore. If the app is just as good this would free up an HDMI port and make everything a bit simpler. When the apps drop expect to hear a few things from me about them.
Oh and they are also releasing a Steam video app so you can stream all your movies on your phone or tablet. Not sure i'd buy a movie on Steam but it's pretty neat anyway.
