Steam Adds Game Broadcast Streaming

Valve is going head-to-head with Amazon-owned game streaming platform Twitch by launching its own equivalent through its digital distribution system Steam. From today, users of Steam Beta can stream and broadcast games between other Steam friends.

The Steam streaming service is more personal than Twitch’s or YouTube’s offering, since it is designed to be exclusive to friends only, meaning strangers will not be able to view your gaming stream.

Using the new streaming function couldn’t be easier. Steam Beta is available for download through the website. Once installed, streams can be easily shared through your Friends List. Right click on a friend’s name and click the ‘Watch Game’ option. The person then has the option to accept your request. If they approve, you get instant access to their live stream.
