Steam In-Home Streaming now available for everyone

Valve today announced that In-Home Streaming, a Steam feature that enables computer-to-computer streaming, is now available for all users.

When users login to Steam on two computers on the same network, they will automatically connect, allowing them to remotely install, launch and play games as though they were sitting at a remote PC.

In-Home Streaming sends video and audio through the user's home network from their high-end gaming PC to another device in their home. From there, mouse, keyboard and controller input is sent back to the remote computer.

The service was open for beta testing late last year. Valve detailed how In-Home Streaming works last November.
