  • Valve has released a limited beta version of the updated Steam mobile app.
  • The beta modernizes the application by tweaking the UI and framework.
  • Included in the beta are a few new features like a new notification system, authenticator, library view, and more.

For years, Steam has been one of the go-to platforms for PC games. While Valve’s desktop app is widely popular, the mobile app is a different story. However, that may change when users get their hands on the new beta version of the Steam mobile app.

In a news post on the Steam website, Valve revealed that it is rolling out a limited beta of the updated app. According to the company, it has “rebuilt the app with a new framework and improved its design. Despite the major changes, Valve ensures that users will still be able to do things like browse the store, get Steam protection codes, and make trades.

In addition to the update, the update brings several improvements to the user experience. These improvements include:

  • A smarter notification system
  • New steam proof
  • Support for multiple accounts
  • Improved library view
  • Improved business verification
  • A customized news feed based on your library
  • Better store navigation

In its news post, Valve explained the reasoning behind updating the app:

The sooner we get your feedback on a product, the better. So when we’re far enough along, we’re asking invested Steam users to try something out and give us feedback. This helps us test our assumptions, learn what they like and don’t like, and find things that need to be fixed. This application is very important when it can be used on different phones and devices.

If you want to try out the updated mobile app for yourself and see how it’s improved, Valve encourages users to download it and provide feedback. The Steam mobile app beta is available for both Android and iOS.

For Android owners, just visit this link on your phone and Google Play Store will provide a link to join the beta.

For iOS users, clicking this link will first prompt you to install Apple’s TestFlight app. Once installed, the beta will automatically install. “Per Apple’s guidelines, iOS beta participants are limited to 10,000 and those slots fill up quickly,” Valve said. We’ll be adding more slots as the beta progresses, so make sure the slots are full.

Although it is a limited beta, we were able to successfully join the beta using the Google Pixel 6 Pro. The UI looks sleeker than we’ve seen so far, notifications are easy to find, and logging in is super easy with the QR code login option.
