Steam Remote Play now supports URL link sharing
Players can now invite anyone through URL links for Steam Remote Play.
Steam Remote Play now supports URL invite links for players to invite anyone to play with them. The new feature also doesn't require invitees to have a Steam account. It will however require them to use the Steam client on Windows, MacOS or Linux, or the Steam Link app available on Android and iOS.
The host of the game on Steam Remote Play will have to own the game with local multiplayer support, and install it on their system. Then the host can share the URL link of the game from the Friends list, and send it to anyone they wish to play with, even those without a Steam account. They can immediately join the game, and start playing remotely together. Steam Remote Play supports up to four players for local multiplayer but the count can extend to more in some games.
Steam Remote Play launched back in 2019, and it offers thousands of games with local multiplayer modes, shared screen, and split screen. It also supports passing the controls among players in some single player games.
Steam is also hosting a ‘Remote Play Together Sale & Streaming Event' on March 25 at 10 am PT (10:30 pm IST). This event will have games up for grabs with hundreds of discounts till March 29. It will also feature popular streamers including Lewis, Squid, Zain, Sohinki and Sips demonstrate Remote Play Together in action. Players can also join the games in progress through links that will be shared in chat on Steam, YouTube, and Twitch.
