Steam Remote Play Together Officially Launched, Support for iOS and Android Devices

Published

on

Last month, Valve rolled out the Steam Remote Play Together feature in Beta that allows users to stream their game to a group of friends over the internet across Windows, Linux, and macOS computers. Today, Remote Play together is officially released for everyone allowing players to stream their game and either all play together at once, or pass control of the game around to emulate the couch co-op experience. The feature also works via the Stream Link mobile app, so you can play on iOS and Android devices as well.

According to Valve, the host player has to start the game, and the friends on PC will be able to join in via Stream Remote Play or on mobile with the Stream Chat and Stream Link apps. That means only the host needs to actually own the game.

The feature is also available for iOS and Android users, but it is not known if network latency might be an issue while playing an action-packed game. This will likely to depend on the host’s internet connection and the distance between them. In a promotional stream, Valve is hosting to show off the feature in action and it looks pretty smooth. There were only a few minor frame drops here and there.

Steam is conducting a sale on multiplayer games to celebrate the launch of the new feature. Some highlights include Death Road to Canada, Spelunky, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Overcooked and Guacamelee which you can buy for less than £5. There are also other games on the sale, in which different titles are being showcased in Valve’s stream over the event. You can find it here. The sale will continue till Monday, November 25 at 1 PM ET.
