Steam, the major PC gaming platform, recently released a mobile game streaming app called Steam Link to the Android Play Store, allowing users to play games by streaming them to their smartphones off their computers. Building on top of the original app, there is a new iteration called Steam Link for Galaxy which is a modified variant meant to work best with Galaxy devices. Only available in US and Korea, users residing outside are unable to view it on the Galaxy app store or even Google Play store. Fortunately enough, we have a quick workaround. You can manually download Steam Link for Galaxy 1.0.1 app APK and install it to your device.
There has been a consistent demand for game streaming through Steam platform but only recently has the brand addressed it. Through Steam Link, your device can relay gameplay by streaming it from your computer. All you need to have is your device and computer to be connected on the same network along with a Bluetooth controller as computer games have detailed control layouts which cannot be recreated on a touchscreen. For Galaxy users, you can use the Steam Link for Galaxy app for better performance and playback.
This app is dedicated for Samsung Galaxy devices, if you are looking for the generic Steam Link app, download here from Play Store.
