Steam Makes PC Streaming Easy and Free
Steam first introduced Remote Play Together back in 2019.
In a nutshell, this feature allowed registered users on Steam to share local multiplayer games with fellow Steam users all over the world. All that they needed was an internet connection and that's it. However, in a recent update, Valve made it possible so that Steam users can share their games with friends, even if they don't have Steam accounts.
For their March 1 update, Steam announced that they will now start to allow Steam users to use the Remote Play Together feature with an unlimited number of non-Steam users. This is an improvement over their earlier update where they only allowed one non-Steam user.

Steam Link Now Available to Linux Users
In addition to this, the March 1 update was also significant for Linux users. In particular, those who've been using Linux on all of their devices. This is because they have finally introduced a Linux version of Steam Link, which helps make the app more functional for a wider range of devices outside of Android iOS, as well as Raspberry Pi devices.
With that said, if you're interested in using Steam Link now, you might want to know a few things first.
For starters, Steam Link is unlike other Cloud gaming solutions. It's not exactly an online cloud game streaming service. Instead, it's more of a local version. It utilizes existing hardware and games you already have available on Steam so you'll need a fairly powerful gaming PC to take advantage of it, which isn't exactly as easy to do these days.
Still, despite not being as useful as it sounds, it's a welcome addition. This is especially if you want to try out streaming your games on your Linux device.
