If you're like most PC gamers, you have a Steam library that's overflowing with games. It's tough to decide which game to play next when there are so many great options! Wouldn't it be great if you could play your favorite games on a device that's always with you? With a Steam Deck, you can stream games from your PC to your phone or tablet. In this article, we'll show you how to set up and use your Steam Deck.
What is Remote Play?
Steam Remote Play is Valve's term for a feature that allows you to stream games from your gaming PC to another device on your home network. The streaming process is very latency-sensitive, so you'll want to use a powerful gaming PC and a stable, fast Wi-Fi network for the best results. The video and audio for the game are both sent from your gaming PC to the Steam Deck, and the commands you're entering on the Steam Deck are all sent back in the blink of an eye.
How to use Steam Remote Play on Steam Deck
The Steam Deck brings all the benefits of Steam to your living room. But what if you want to take the action a step further and play your favorite games on the big screen? The good news is it's simple to use Steam Remote Play on the Steam Deck. You will, of course, need to leave your gaming PC turned on, but you don't need to be in the same room. Simply open Steam's settings and navigate to ""Remote Play"". Click ""Advanced Host Options"" and tick ""change desktop resolution to match streaming client"". Navigate to the game you want to play and you'll see the option to install but next to that is a drop-down click that to see the option to stream.
