Steam Remote Play Now Works Between Different Networks

Steam Remote Play Now Works Between Different Networks

The Steam Client was patched Thursday, the 13th. Most significantly, Steam In-Home Streaming was re-branded as Steam Remote Play and has now been expanded to work between different networks. The inter-network play is currently an experimental feature. Steam Remote Play, not to be confused with Steam Link, is the capability that allows players to stream from one computer to another.

Steam In-Home Streaming is experimentally available outside the home, and is now known as Steam Remote Play. Your Steam clients can now stream games from each other wherever they are, as long as there is a good network connection on both sides and they are close to a Steam datacenter.
