Some of you probably realize that Valve enforced secure trading on Steam by forcing users to use their mobile authenticator if they want their trades to go smooth.
Turns out the app is only available for iOS and Android. All other people have to wait 3 days until their items are delivered to the buyer. There are also Steam Community discounts for people with this app and if you don’t have the app you can’t partake in those.
I really had hope that someday soon we would see an universal app for Windows 10 Mobile which could be used on phones and tablets – with respective UI designs for each. There is a huge demand on Steam Community forums, here is a random thread with hundreds of replies.
Windows 10 Mobile is installed on 7% of all active Windows phone devices (including my Lumia 640 LTE) and it didn’t even officially come out yet on the older devices.

“At this time we have no plan to implement a Steam Mobile app for Windows phone, but we have made updates to make such of Steam now accessible via your mobile web browser. I’ll make sure the mobile team knows that users like you are interested in the app specific features.”
Here is a nice reddit post with the source of both images. What do you guys think?[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
