    But there is another advantage to this system that many are not aware of. Because you have the option of casting anything from your PC to your mobile device, you will be able to get your PlayStation games over there as well. The PS4 allows the streaming of games to your PC. If you have the Steam Link app installed, you stream the games that you’re playing directly on your Android device.

    The hardware requirements that need to be met in order to make Steam Link work are as follows:

    • A host computer that runs a SteamOS or Steam Big Picture Mode on Windows, MacOS or Ubuntu.

    • You will need a network with a minimum speed of 15 Mbps. According to Steam, the best results can be achieved if everything takes place in a 5GHz network.

    • The last thing that you need is an android device, a phone or tablet will do. Though it is possible to play some games without a controller, that is not the recommended course of action. You can use a Bluetooth controller (a keyboard and mouse).

    Following the instructions given below will allow you to learn what you need to do in order to play your PS4 games on your PC:

    1) Set up Steam Link for Android

    • Open Steam.
