The Updated Steam Link App Allows You To Stream Games From ANYWHERE

Valve extend Steam Link out of the home and networking API to all developers

Steam Link Anywhere update allows you to stream games on any PC

Valve has launched a beta for Steam Link Anywhere, the logical extension to its Steam In-Home Streaming which removes the "in-home" requirement and allows gamers to stream from anywhere to anywhere.

In other words, assuming you have a strong enough data connection, you can play your Steam games on your Android device from anywhere in the world.

At the moment, the Steam Link app is not available on iOS, so if you have an iPhone or iPad you won't be able to enjoy the new feature for now.

Though this extension of capabilities is now limited to the Steam Link device itself, it is expected to eventually roll out to the official Steam Link Android app.

In order to access the beta, you'll need to opt-in to the Steam client beta on desktop and have the latest version installed.

You can now use Steam Link almost anywhere

The Steam Link app launched on Android almost a year ago, but there were some restrictions with it. However, the devices no longer need to be connected to the same network for it to work.

This streaming of games is one of the use cases for 5G.

Microsoft also just unveiled its upcoming xCloud game-streaming service in action and announced game streaming from PC to Xbox consoles in the same local network.
