While the company swiftly killed off production of the original Steam Link box and controller in November of 2018, they have been working in secret on a software implementation of the same concept in the form of Steam Link Anywhere. Of course, people will need high upload speeds from their PCs and strong network connections to their Steam Link devices to take advantage, Valve said.

Anyone who wants to use Steam Link Anywhere can access it by updating their Steam client to the beta build dated March 13 or newer, Valve said. Until, Apple and Steam can works around restrictions with the security framework in iOS, there is unfortunately no iOS Store version of the app as of yet. To jump in on the mobile action Steam have announced their Steam Link Anywhere and have a supporting Android app ready.

For those making games, Valve have opened up the Steam Networking Sockets APIs to all developers. You'll be given a pairing code which you'll need to use to connect with your Steam library on the host PC.

Update: Dec. 20, 2018 - Valve is no longer selling the Steam Link hardware, but it will continue to update and support the Steam Link app going forward.

This service is an extension of Steam Link, which allows users to stream games from their desktop PC to a compatible device over an Internet connection.

Remember that both the Steam client and the Steam Link Android app are in beta, so if this doesn't work for you (or doesn't work that well) don't be too surprised. Steam Link Anywhere is a new service and it greatly expands upon the previous functionality of Steam Link for Android.
