If you own a gaming console, the first question you might ask is “Can I remote into my home computer and play games there?”. This is possible thanks to Steam, a popular software that allows you to play games on another computer. Steam essentially connects two computers, connected by the same network, so you can play your games on the other console without the need to install software. This software uses your home network to stream video and audio, as well as controller input. Its hardware claims to have the lowest latency of any gaming console on the market.
Windows users can enable Remote Desktop to access their computers. To enable Remote Desktop, they must enter the user account password of the remote computer. They can then launch the Remote Desktop client and log in with the username and password on the remote computer. If your remote PC is Windows, you can enable Remote Desktop by following the instructions below. For Mac users, you can download the Remote Desktop application from the Mac App Store or Google Play.
If you want to play PC games on the remote PC, you should download the Steam app from the app store. Afterwards, you should install the remote PC’s client on your home computer. Then, launch the remote computer’s browser and select the game from its Steam library. The remote PC will display the game in its host PC. It will also show you the streaming statistics. You can view the capture resolution, ping time, and bitrates.
