If you didn't know there was a Steam Mobile App in the first place, you're not alone. In fact it's the first thing Valve acknowledges in its flashy new video highlighting its new update to said app. But as someone who does have the app, and honestly felt like it was supremely limited before, this is good news. Being able to browse, purchase and remote download games to my PC from the app is probably the highlight, but there's a stack of other new features...

There's actually the three apps, as mentioned above as well, which could be overkill, or maybe just seen as a better way to navigate and manage each based on your needs.

Here's the dot-point takeaways:
  • Two-factor authentication to ensure you’re the only one with access to your account
  • QR code sign in - Scan a QR code to sign into Steam instead of entering a password or…
  • Sign in confirmation - Confirm your regular Steam sign ins with simple “approve” or “deny”
  • Authorised Devices - Manage access to the devices your account has signed in
  • Easy access to the Store, Community, News, etc from wherever you are
  • Your Library with access to your game content, discussions, guides, support, and more
  • Remote download of games and updates on your PC, managed from your phone
  • Customisable Steam notifications: wishlist, sales, comments, trades, discussions, friend requests, and more
  • Trade and Market confirmations – to ensure items don’t leave your account without your approval
  • An improved Store browsing experience for mobile screens
  • Support for using multiple Steam accounts in the app
  • Customisable tabs
  • The QR Code sign-in addition is also a good one, especially considering the modern environment. You can learn even more on everything above right here.
