At the end of the month the Steam Link App will be released on smartphones, and most of the games on Steam will be accessible from smartphones in 4k and 60 fps, but only if connected to the same network. The peak of the performance, revealed Valve, will be reached by 5 GHz networks, and not 2.4GHz networks.

The application will be free and will work similarly to the Steam Link device for television, thus allowing you to play from your smartphone. "We've received a lot of requests from customers, asking to be able to stream elsewhere in the house in addition to their TVs," said Valve's Sam Lanting, "The bathroom has often appeared as a request, oddly enough."

Lanting added that there will be some latency that could jeopardize competitive games and that it will be preferable to use a tablet screen, especially to read texts and enjoy details.

At launch the application will support all iOS devices that use iOS 10 or newer and all Apple TV with tvOS 10.3 or newer. As for Android, Valve initially wants to release it in beta, so you can conduct more in-depth tests. At the beginning the beta will run on Android 5.0 or newer.

The quality to which the app will be 1080p and 60 fps, but with a good network will be possible to exhaust in 4k and 60 fps.

The app will adapt the reports to the screen with black bands, and you can zoom freely with your fingers from the touch screen.

The release date is May 21, it will support the Steam Controller, MFI controller and more.
