Beta Version of Steam Mobile App Released

Share |

Valve today announced the release of a Steam mobile application for Android and iOS devices, giving users a chance to chat, browse community groups and profiles, view screenshots, read news and stay up-to-date on sales. The app is currently in closed beta status and more users will be added as the service ramps up. There is no mention of Steam mobile supporting mobile games and apps at this time but one has to wonder as it seems like a logical step.

The Steam app comes from many direct requests from our customers,” said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. “Seeing which of your friends are online and playing a game, sending quick messages, looking at screenshots for an upcoming game, or catching a sale – these are all features customers have requested. Mobile is changing way people interact, play games and consume media, and the Steam app is part of our commitment to meet customer demands and expand the service functionality of Steam to make it richer and more accessible for everyone.”
