I enabled Steam broadcasting because it was an annoying option in my way on the in-game Steam menu, although once I enabled it I realised I did not know how to disable it. How do I disable Steam broadcasting?

  • Have you tried exiting the game and loading it up again?

In the client, go in the Settings panel, Broadcast's tab.

enter image description here

Here's the support page for broadcasting on steam :

The first time a friend requests to watch your game you'll be presented with the broadcast privacy settings. To make a change at any time, access the Steam Client's Settings panel and select the Broadcast tab to view your privacy settings.

Available settings:

Broadcast is disabled
Friends can request to watch my games (default)
Friends can watch my games
Anyone can watch my games (public broadcast, can be found in the game hub)

I was confused at first but I realized at the bottom means click the box with the downward facing arrow and a drop menu pops out and you can select broadcasting disabled.


However, what isn't mentioned, is that when you restart you PC (and steam restarts) the broadcasting is enabled.

There doesn't seem any way to PERMANENTLY disable broadcasting.
