Default Steam Link beta App released

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/201...s-android-ios/

Tried it briefly on my Samsung S7, booted up Witcher 3 and ran around a bit, didnt pair a controller or anything.
It has some mouse emulation for touchscreen and some gesture stuff, didnt look very closely at it.

Seems to work fine, a bit pointless on the phone but if you have a device that can output to a TV you got a free Steam Link.
Specially if you have an ethernet option.

Anyone with a Android TV device tried it? (not sure it´s out there yet tho?)

Valve says the app should support 4K at 60 fps, but that 1080p at 60fps will be the standard quality bar for most titles
That´s a nice upgrade over the Steam Link box.

The only thing that bothered me with the app was the sound driver it required to install on the host machine. That itself is fine, the problem was that it did not revert back to the realtek driver as the default output device, so I had no sound in Assassin's Creed on my PC when I decided to play, had to manually reset the sound output.

The steam client side of things should be business as usual, and sound swapping has worked on my bothers steam link for ages so you possibly just got some bug there. Or quitting out "wrong" possibly.?

No, I quit the program normally. It is a beta app after all.

The app is sure, but the steam client that would do the swapping isn't, was my point.
And the old steam link box worked the same way with the same audio driver afaik.

I just took "stop streaming" in the big picture interface and that worked fine.

I have a shield and can fire Steam Big Picture from nvidia's gaming app. Pretty much any any game tagged with "Full controller support" has worked fine.

I'll give it a try later today and report back.

Is the steam link beta app available on the shield?
Not clear on the eco system on that thing, does it have Google play or some Nvidia store?

Considered getting one instead of a steam link and a Chromecast, specially since the link box doesn't support 4k.

Tried it once with Witcher 3 on my Shield Console. About 2 minutes in, the stream froze for whatever reason/ After hitting the home button and going back to the stream, it unfroze, however, lost sound.


Soo, it needs some work. The nv game stream app works better and has less input lag, even when using it to stream Big Picture to launch Steam games.
