Valve has announced that Steam will have a mobile version and it is in beta right now. The app can be used for Steam chat, general information on elements of steam and the ability to browse Steam offerings.
“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.”
The Steam app will be available for free on Android and iOS.
