The Steam Link App Explained

Steam Link application was created for iPhone, iPad, TV devices, Smartphones, Tablets, STBS with Android. If you want to access STB on the Roku device, you’ll find the need for the Steam Link BTS as it functions as a receiver. On the other hand, Steam Link for the Roku device can’t be connected. 

The reason for this is that streaming devices like Roku will always show a significant delay that could last for several seconds. Also, synchronizing the screen and sound will be challenging. If you want a consistent audio signal, you’ll need very fast internet connectivity.

A wireless network or audio cables could be used for this.

Users should be aware that Roku does not offer any assistance with synchronization issues. I hope you liked the article.
