Steam goes mobile

If you head over to the Steam Mobile website, you’re provided with links to download Steam Mobile for either Android devices, or iOS devices. Steam Mobile is still in beta, but if you want to apply you have to install the app and sign in. The app will let you chat with friends, check out sales, make purchases, view screenshots and read gaming news.

“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.”

There’s no clarification yet on when Steam Mobile will exit beta.
