### What is Steam Remote Play? Steam Remote Play comes in two variations: Together and Anywhere. With “Remote Play Anywhere,” you can run games on your main computer and stream them to another less powerful device. You can then play normally on the second device because the inputs are again streamed back to your main computer. This usually works directly through the Steam client or the Steam Link app. “Remote Play Together” follows a similar process, but with some differences. As the host, you can play a game with local multiplayer, simultaneously running on your computer and someone else’s device. Both computers can then control a character in the game. This allows you to play games that may not have an online multiplayer mode but still play together online. The Steam network simulates that both people are at the same computer. What may sound complicated at first can actually be summarized quite simply: With Steam Remote Play Together, you can play almost any game with a multiplayer mode online. For more information about its features, visit the official Steam website.
