As the name suggests, Steam Remote Play Together allows you to play local multiplayer games across a variety of devices. Valve advertised the feature as only available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, but it looks like it also works for Android and iOS. According to a report by The Verge, Steam Remote Play Together runs on Android and iOS. The outlet said the following.
