Interesting. So are you logged into two different accounts?

I get disconnected on the desktop-pc when i start steam on the macbook, but the macbook can somehow still se the desktop is online, and wich games are installed.

and no, i use the same account.

All games or just some? I'm curious as I'm trying to see if I can get the same thing. So far yet I can't.

Oh. I didn't know you could be logged into the same account from two different machines o_O
Confirmed. I get the same thing. Try to login with my laptop and it bumps off my desktop but then the streaming options appear but don't work yet.

I think it lists all the games installed.

Well you can't and thats the problem, as soon as you connect from another computer you lose connection on the first computer. And that why i can't authenticate i the stream i think.

Try starting steam on computer 1, minimize and leave it there for a couple of mins. before starting steam on computer 2 :)

Can confirm here also. Just can't get past the authentication step. I thought perhaps two accounts linked through family sharing on the same LAN would be able to do it, but no such luck :( It looks like the stream option only pops for simultaneous sign in of the same account. Here's to hoping we'll see the feature soon!

To those who are trying to replicate and mess around with it, make sure both machines are running the beta steam client and are authorized family sharing devices.

This also seems to change the default library filter options. "Installed Games" now lists everything installed on both on my machines, while a new "Local Games" filter appeared that has just the stuff on that actual machine.

so sad it still doesnt works :/
i have tried this on my PCs (both windows) and i got authentication error as well
at least we know this feature is almost in our hands now! :D

Awesome. I'm looking forward to seeing how well this works.

Awesome, hopefully this means we are one step closer to the beta!
