In Valve’s latest update for Steam, the company added a new Broadcasting that allows users to broadcast their screen to their friends while playing their game without the need to use any third-party services. All you need to do is go to your friend’s profile and click the “Watch Game” button, once they approve, you’ll be able to watch their gameplay.
Valve activated Steam Broadcasting on Tuesday, which allows Steam’s millions of PC users to broadcast live gameplay to their friends without downloading any additional software. It’s a simple way to share your screen while gaming or to watch other gamers play. Just click on “watch game” from a friend’s profile; then, like with Twitch, you’ll see a smaller chat window appear that displays the game. You can also reach broadcasts from the Community tab in Steam. Broadcasting is even easier. Set your privacy settings; you can let anyone or just friends watch your games. (Alternatively, you can have friends watch if they request first.) Then, if you start playing and someone starts watching, you automatically start broadcasting.
