A listing for an official Steam app for Windows Phone has now popped up on the Windows Store, lending credence to previous rumors that an app was on its way. Though the app isn't yet available for download, its description notes that it will include and authenticator, along with community features and more.
Update: Some users are now reporting that they are able to download the app; we're still not having luck on our devices, so your experience may vary
When it is available, here's a look at what you can expect from the official Steam app:
- Ensure the security of your account with Steam Guard multifactor authentication
- Send and confirm trades with friends
- Sell your in-game items in the Steam Community Market straight from your Inventory
- Browse the Steam storefront and keep up with the latest games, promotions, and sales
- Remotely download and install your games straight to your PC at home
Curiously, the app isn't a Windows 10 Mobile app; rather, it's build for Windows Phone 8.1. It's also unclear when the app will become available to download, but its version notes do mention this is an "initial, limited functionality, release."
In any case, be sure to check out the Steam listing on the Windows Store and let us know what you think in the comments!
