Steam Mobile App Redesigned by Valve, Available in Beta: Here’s How to Test the New App

Apple guidelines allow only 10,000 users at once to test out apps in TestFlight.


There is a very good chance that gamers who regularly use Steam have forgotten that there is also a Steam Mobile App. Valve seems to have also taken note and have now redesigned the mobile app from the ground up to include new features while retaining some of the old ones such as being able to browse games, your Library, and get Steam Guard codes.

The app is still a ways away from launch and Valve in inviting “invested users” to beta test the app. The beta will be available on both iOS and Android and will allow users to use the full functionality of the app prior to launch.

With both PlayStation and Xbox having up stepped up their game significantly when it comes to their mobile app – it is about time Valve gets with the times on mobile.
