Steam Mobile app to get a lot of new features
Valve has been pushing Steam on a lot of mobile devices lately, and it has plans to add plenty of new features to the app. They want to make it comprehensive, and allow you to access Steam conveniently on a mobile device.
“In general, we have a healthy list and expect it to grow, with new opportunities presenting themselves as the list becomes more robust,” said Valve engineer Kutta Srinivasan to Gamasutra.
“In an upcoming [update], the Steam app will be able to act as a two-factor authentication device to bolster the security on your primary Steam account,” he added.
“If your phone is lost or stolen, simply changing the password on your account will invalidate the tokens used by the application to access Steam.”
He said that the main target with this application was to get current Steam customers connected to the service when they’re away from their PC.
“Phase one was just about getting existing customers connected when they’re away from their computers. As we discover the ways they interact with what we’ve provided, we expect to learn more about how to make it more universal.”
