Valve gets Steam on mobile phones
iOS and Android app now available; beta-invite only.
Valve has released a Steam app for iOS and Android devices today. The app will allow users to chat with friends, see what others are playing, browse titles, view screenshots, and yes, even purchase titles.
“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.”
Although you can download the app now, access is limited to beta-invite only. To be part of the beta, just download the app and try to log-in.
