Steam In-Home Streaming is now live for all users

Steam In Home Streaming

Following months of beta testing, Valve’s In-Home Streaming service is now available to all users.

Valve’s gaming platform, Steam, has launched its In-Home Streaming service to all users. The streaming service was previously only available to users that opted in to the Steam client beta. In-Home Streaming allows you to play games on your older devices (a laptop or PC) by way of streaming the game from your more powerful gaming PC, for instance.

It’s simple to get started too; all you need to do is log in to Steam on the PC you wish to stream your game from, and then log in to the device you want to stream to; access your Steam Games Library from the second device, and choose the game you wish to play – voilà, you’re playing games through your older laptop/PC by way of computer-wizardry.

You can currently play your Windows-based games, via the streaming service, on your Mac, Linux, and SteamOS devices too. The info page on Steam’s website also notes that support for more systems will arrive soon.

For more information you can head on over to the In-Home Streaming support page – go on, give it a try and let us know how you get on.
