Remote Play is the single most convenient feature that you can utilize to play PC games anywhere. This aspect of playing PC games from one computer to another computer, mobile phone, or laptop has been gaining a lot of popularity as of late.

The number of new applications pouring in that is focused on this gaming remote feature has increased significantly. Now there are foundations in place that allow you to remote play your favorite PC games without any major lag or delay.

Therefore, the general interest of the people in remote playing their favorite PC games on other devices has increased significantly especially since setting up the whole process is quite easy.

Among the many remote play applications, I have chosen AnyDesk today for demonstration purposes. The reason for choosing this application over others is because of its ease-of-use factor.

What Is AnyDesk?

AnyDesk is an application that allows you to connect to and access a device from another device without needing to connect them physically.

The connection is established wirelessly and also can be made from a faraway or even when you are at another location and the computer is another location.

We refer to this sort of connection as remote play and the applications that provide this feature are therefore called remote play applications with AnyDesk also being one of them.

Requirements for Using AnyDesk to Remote Play Games

Before we get all excited let me tell you that there are certain requirements that you need to fulfill in order to secure a stable AnyDesk connection.

Hardware: You will need a proper well-kitted computer if you have any hopes of remote playing the game smoothly.

If you are using an older generation PC, then it might be a good idea to upgrade. For upgrading your machine, the prebuilt PC route is preferable for most amateurs.

Prebuilt gaming PCs come in all varieties, but I reckon the most you need for streaming is a prebuilt gaming PC under 800 dollars. A PC in this price range will provide you with the capability that you will ever need for remote playing PC games.

Network: Since AnyDesk establishes connection wireless by using the Internet for pairing, it is important that you have a fast and stable internet connection. Without a fast and stable internet connection, the remote play screen will be quite grainy and laggy which is something you definitely want to avoid.

Application and Game Settings: Proper settings for both the game and AnyDesk are crucial if you want to set up a smooth remote play. Since every PC is different here you will need to tweak the settings according to PC until you find the correct balance.

How to Use AnyDesk to Setup a Remote Connection for Playing PC Games

Setting up AnyDesk is easy and can be done with the following simple steps

  1. Down and install the application on both your PC and the other device
  2. Login into the application as a guest user
  3. Enter the user ID and password of your PC’s AnyDesk on the other device’s AnyDesk.
  4. Click on connect and voila now you will be able to use and see the screen of your PC on the other device.
