New Steam apps will allow streaming games, movies, series and videos to iPhones, iPads and Apple TVs

O Steam the best invention in the gaming world in a long time, and now it's about to get even better: the Valve, developer of the platform, announced the launch of two applications that will take all games on the service (in addition to other content) to the screens of iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs and many other devices through a streaming place.

The main news about the app Steam Link, which will be made available for iOS, tvOS and (in the future) Android and use Steam technology In-Home Streaming which currently serves to transmit the game from a computer to another PC or Mac in your home to take the platform titles to any screen you may wish.

For this, it will be necessary to have a Mac / PC with the app that sends the information to the target device; a 5GHz Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection required for the process. That is, at least for now, the dream of playing your Steam titles anywhere is not yet alive, but this is an important first step.

Steam Link will be compatible with a number of joysticks MFi and the Steam Controller itself, but it will also bring, for touch devices, on-screen controls for a peripheral-free experience if that's your thing.

The second app announced was the Steam Video, which fulfills a similar role but with different films, series and videos that the user has in his Steam library the difference is that, in this case, the application will support transmission via Wi-Fi or 4G, allowing its use anywhere and not in your home network.

Steam Link for iOS and tvOS will be released in two weeks, with the Android version coming later; Steam Video, in turn, will come until the end of the northern hemisphere summer (our winter). Nice, huh?
