Valve's Steam Link App Hits 2 Million Installs, First Week on iOS Nets 300K Users

Game streaming app Steam Link from Valve Software hits a major install milestone according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence estimates.

Steam Link

A year after it was initially rejected for release on the App Store, Valve's Steam Link app, which enables computer gamers using the company's Steam application to play their libraries via mobile devices, was finally given the green light by Apple last week. Store Intelligence data shows that more than 330,000 users have installed the iOS version worldwide since then, pushing total downloads of the app—which include the Android beta launched on Google Play last year—beyond two million globally.

Installs of the iOS app have largely come from China and Japan thus far, with those countries accounting for 57 percent and 14 percent of downloads, respectively. The United States is a distant third at about 6 percent of installs.

Looking at the Android version on Google Play, the app's installed base there is predominantly U.S. based, with 22 percent of the app's nearly 1.9 million downloads of the platform originating there. Total U.S. installs of both the iOS and Android version stand at an estimated 430,000 to date.

Since its launch on iOS a week ago, the Steam Link for both platforms has been installed approximately 52,000 times per day on average.
