Valve launching Steam Link, Steam Video apps for iOS, Android devices soon

Rejoice Steam players! Valve today announced that a pair of iOS and Android Steam Link and Steam Video apps are just around the corner.

What does this mean? Well with the Steam Link app, Steam players can stream their library of Steam games from their host Windows or Mac machines directly to their iOS and/or Android devices. The app will support the Steam Controller and other input devices and will be available beginning on May 21st. The Steam Video will be available a bit later on this summer and will allow video streaming in a similar fashion.

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.

Steam is a leading platform for digital entertainment, offering thousands of games, movies, and films to millions of people around the world. For more information, please visit
