Valve to test redesigned Steam mobile app

Valve refocuses on Steam and releases a beta test of the redesigned app for all Android and iOS users

Tech Desk August 29, 2022

The mobile app of popular video gaming service Steam has been neglected by its owner company Valve for some time now. The app is available for iOS and Android users. However, in a recent blog post, the company invited its Steam clients to test the beta redesign of the app.

The post outlines new features such as intelligent notifications, multi-account support, and a new way to log into your Steam account.

The app now also had QR Code verification for login instead of writing in your login details. According to Valve, "We’ve rebuilt the app on a new framework and modernized the design. (2015 called and wanted their app back).”

The new redesign of Steam has been well received by users, but still has a few blemishes, bugs, and slow performance.

While the release date of the update to the app hasn't yet been announced but the beta version can easily be installed via Steam's website. The iOS beta is, however, limited to 10,000 participants because of Apple’s TestFlight restrictions.
