Steam Mobile App Finally Significantly Updated; Improved Viewing, Design, Browsing & More

Valve has announced that the Steam mobile app has finally received a significant update, completely changing its design, so it doesn’t look like it’s from the early 2000s anymore.

The official blog post highlighting this update has listed the following features:

  • 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”
  • Authorized 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
  • Customizable 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
  • Customizable tabs

Signing in via a QR code is also now possible with caveats dependent on 2fa verification. Additionally, the separate chat app will receive continual updates, with Android already having one and iOS soon to follow.

The following steps are explicitly stated to be coming next:

  • Bringing QR sign in to Steam Deck
  • Adding new notification types
  • Bringing the Authorized Devices list to the Steam Client and browser

The Steam Deck has recently been made available to purchase without reservation in several regions.
