The Steam Link app, which valve plans to start the week of May 21
While it rolls out at the same time, Android support will initially be in beta. Valve says the app will support both Steam Controller and MFI controllers.
In the summer, it plans to release a Steam Video app to stream your Steam video library to Android and iOS devices via Wi-Fi or LTE – or view it offline.
So far, the only system built for streaming to a complete set of mobile deviceshas had other issues. Others seem to be all ongoing work.

Steam has long been able toto other systems in the same network, but mobile devices are new areas. Unfortunately, there is still a close proximity to a host or dedicated mobile app to from home. But it's a big step forward.
And because it can stream to Android TV, it means you're likely to be able to play on Nvidia'sand its third-party versions, such as as announced at . Assuming they start sending this summer, it's like Nvidia originally promised for its model.
