Steam In-Home Streaming Now Available, Allows PCs to Stream to Other Devices on Same Network

With Steam Machines set to bring a new spin to the idea of PC gaming, Valve is continuing to look at other ways to bring PCs into the living room, and now Steam’s In-Home Streaming ability is one step closer to that.

Announced by Steam in a new blog post, Valve’s gaming service has been updated to include the new In-Home Streaming ability: when logged into Steam on two computers in the same household/network, players will now have the ability to stream a title from one computer to the other. When hosting a stream from one computer (such as a high-end PC), this will allow players to play games on another device in their household, such as a laptop, or even to Mac/Linux-based computers.

In-Home Streaming between Steam-capable devices is now available to host on PC: Mac/Linux-based hosting will be coming soon.
