How to download and play Grand Theft Auto V on Android phones using the Steam Link

GTA 5 enthusiasts are eager to play the game on their mobile devices and frequently ask if it is possible. This is not possible natively because the game has never been converted to Android or iOS. Those who own games on Steam, on the other hand, can use the Steam Link to do so. Steam Link is a web-based application that allows PC gamers to stream games to mobile devices. When using Steam Link, bandwidth and latency between the user’s PC, router, and mobile device will affect streaming performance. This is how players can use Steam Link to set up and stream GTA 5 to their mobile devices.
