If the app allows as much control customization as Steam itself does (which I have to imagine it will be identical, you're just passing input into the PC) then this is amazing. I can finally play a real 4X on my phone

Sony XBR series all run Android OS. Samsung got its own special steam app, but if it the new one goes on the google play store or can be loaded via apk it can hopefully run on Android TVs.

I just assumed it was for all android TVs, I didn't bother looking it up since I have a steam link.

A bunch of people on the interwebs have said most Android TVs can already install the app, apparently. My TV isn't android but kinda moot as it's wired as an optional output to my PC anyway :p Just need to wait a couple weeks and try and muck about with the phone app. The S8+ isn't THAT big so might not be fun at all, but it makes a Note or some such even more appealing

I think I'd rather use that on a tablet over a phone.

Are there any really beefy tablets out there these days?

Pretty sure the Nvidia Shield is still the best tablet out there

Does a phone using the app need to be that beefy if it's just streaming video, essentially?

I'm not sure, my phone got super hot when I tried to play PUBG on it and my thumbs hurt like hell the next few days. I'm not sure if that was in my head or if I legit burned them.

I'd want the biggest screen possible to play on though, especially if I fly to Thailand this year.

Just need a good net connection if it works like similar services (ps4 remote, etc). The whole point of these streaming clients is making the host do all the work.

The way you put it makes me wonder how this took so long. Remote desktop on mobile isn't new.
