Valve releases Steam Link SDK to allow for native app development

Now that the Steam Link SDK is out there, we could soon see some native apps running on the device.


Steam Link has been on the market for a little over two months now, and this week, Valve has released the Steam Link SDK to allow for native app development.

In a post announcing the Steam Link SDK, Valve revealed the Steam Link hardware features a single-core ARMv7 processor running at 1GHz, uses hard-float ABI, and supports neon instruction. It also contains approximately 256MB of available RAM and 500MB of usable flash storage.

The SDK should now allow developers to create custom applications that can natively run on Steam Link. That means we can soon see the likes of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, and other similar apps running on Steam Link, that is, if there’s enough interest.
