The latest Steam Client Beta has some interesting features for gamers with local friends. Valve has added CO-OP Steam Link streaming for multiple devices simultaneously, but the feature requires a high quality 5 GHz WiFi network. Don't worry about purchasing additional controllers for all of your friends as now they can disable the audio and video on their Android phones within the Steam Link app and use them as touch controllers! Also the version of Chromium used in Steam has been updated to 68.

Starting on September 25th, Valve is now offering game developers the option to use Valve's moderation team to review posts reported by community members. Valve has reassured developers that they won't be actively moderating their community discussions; only the reported posts and content. Valve says that they have been moderating content such as images, guides, reviews, etc for quite awhile and this is just an extension of that practice. Many developers have been asking for help and Valve has been busy implementing the human power to handle the task. Developers can opt out of the service.

For quite a while now, our moderation team has been reviewing and taking appropriate action on many forms of reported community content across Steam, such as screenshots, artwork, guides, user profiles, community groups, and user reviews. In the past, we've been hesitant to get involved in the moderation of individual game discussions, as we didn't want to step on the toes of game developers that want to have their own style of communication with players and their own set of guidelines for behavior.

I've got 2 steam links & 2 win10 vms. Does this mean I can play "lego starwars" twice on the same account to play co-op?

The occasional (and brief) sessions of Lego star wars with my 3 year old is literally the only thing i use my steam link for.
