Steam Link game streaming now supported on Raspberry Pi

13 Dec 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

You can now stream your PC games over the home network to a TV screen via the Raspberry Pi 3 or 3 B+. Steam Link has launched in beta.

Steam Link on Raspberry Pi

Last month, Valve discontinued its Steam Link hardware to focus on software solutions. The first software solution to emerge after the strategy change is Raspberry Pi.

Steam Link is available in beta on the Raspberry Pi 3 and 3 B+ running Raspbian Stretch. It lets you stream your PC games from Steam over the home network – WiFi or Ethernet – to a larger screen.

- “The Steam Link app is now available in beta on the Raspberry Pi 3 and 3 B+ running Raspbian Stretch,” the company said. “The first time you run it, it will download the full app and create a desktop shortcut, and automatically update as needed.”

Valve’s Steam Link system is also available as a built-in solution in Samsung Smart TVs. More recently, the company launched an app for Android TV and Android mobile devices. Valve had also planned to bring the solution to Apple TV but Apple rejected the app over “business conflicts”.
