About this app

Features include:


- Watch featured Steam community broadcasts
- Watch friends play Steam games
- Interact with members of the Steam community with live chat.
- Search for broadcasts by Steam game name e.g. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG
- Follow your favorite broadcasters so you can watch their live streams whenever they're online
- Share a broadcast to your friends so they can see who's live and who's stream you're watching right now!

Your privacy is important


- Authentication is done through the Steamworks API
- All data is stored on the device and will be deleted when the app is deleted.
- We do not track any personal user data.

Watching broadcasts through the official Steam app can be slow and tedious, with this free Steampowered broadcast and chat app, free Steam games have never been so easy to watch.

The great thing about Steam broadcasting is how simple it is to start up a broadcast and go live. Not everyone has the technical skills to use OBS or other broadcasting software but live streaming Steam games is just one click away. This makes it that much easier to watch smaller streams and chat with the Steam community, or just spectate your friends while they play.

Good for what it does. Had issues with bugs booting me out of stream, chat being laghy, the UI just being a bit ugly and not great to use. But it lets you watch your friend stream while you're on your phone, and that's super convenient. Definitely worth getting, and functions well enough. My main issue is it freaking out and needing restarts if you switch from data to wifi or vice versa. But I'm sure that's tough for a developer to work around

First off, I'm giving you 4 stars because I believe it's hard to maintain a free app like this. Must've taken a lot of effort, and since it's the only app of the kind it's a blessing for the people who are using this without any issues. Although, I have faced a couple of issues. 1. Shows a lot of friends are offline when they aren't. Shows only a couple of friends as in-game when there are more. 2. Can't tap on a few friends that the app shows as offline to view their broadcast when they are actually online and in-game because not all of them are shown on the app. I have about 400 friends on Steam and seems like the app only shows about 150ish. 3. Can't use the vanity name feature because the 'following' page buffers forever. Never loads. I have tried reinstalling the app a few times hoping that it would work. Even tried relogging in to my account and switched to other accounts. For the most part, it only works when the friend is shown on the list as offline. Sometimes lucky when it shows as in game. I have also made sure they have their broadcast settings enabled. Good luck to you guys and I hope this is fixed soon; my 4 star rating is the only, small way I could show endorsement to you guys. I really appreciate your effort into making this app. Edit - okay initially I gave you 2 stars accidently, lol, my bad

It's been a while but we've found more info about why accounts were appearing as online/offline esp in relation to friends. Your friends have to have their "Game Details" privacy set to public or 3rd party apps (like this one) won't be able to see them online

Became fully loaded with ads to a point where you can't even load a video. I don't recommend using the app. It was perfect in the beginning, saved lots of time and has a very high quality video but now very bad due to the ads. [UPDATE] The Developpers Kindly replied back and they fixed the issue, glad they did. I can now watch my friends when I'm away. THANK YOU. (Definitely Giving The App 5 Stars Now)
