Stream your Steam games to your laptop!

Steam just launched In-Home Streaming. This is rather a breakthrough, you can now stream your Steam games (or pretty much anything from your gaming computer!) to any device that supports Steam (excluding Google Android I guess).

Have an old Linux laptop laying around and want to play Titanfall or have a quick session in Dota 2? Or maybe you have an older PC with Windows XP running? No worries, you can now stream games from your gaming rig to that. No bullshit, it works! Wanna know how? Read below.

Open up Steam, click on Steam>Settings. Under the Account tab enable Steam Beta Update and restart the client (you have to do that on all machines you want to use!). After the update open up the Settings once more and click on In-Home Streaming.

Now go to your second device. Once you’re connected click on the Library and select Installed from the drop down menu (to see games actually installed on your laptop/other device select Local).
