Gabe Newell said that it’s going to be a great addition and was a result of many direct requests from their customers.
“The Steam app comes from many direct requests from our customers,” he said
“Seeing which of your friends are online and playing a game, sending quick messages, looking at screenshots for an upcoming game, or catching a sale – these are all features customers have requested. Mobile is changing way people interact, play games and consume media, and the Steam app is part of our commitment to meet customer demands and expand the service functionality of Steam to make it richer and more accessible for everyone” Newell added.
We’ll be giving away 3 Steam Mobile invites later today!
