Rumours have been going around for awhile now that Valve, the company behind PC gaming service Steam, is working on an app for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone. Today, we are happy to confirm that these rumours are correct.
A store listing has appeared that details a 'Steam Official' app, being published by Valve Corporation.
According to the listing, the app is not a Universal Windows 10 app, but it does support Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile. It will come packed with many features that Steam's apps on other platforms also offer, such as:
- Steam Guard Authentication
- Trading (trade items with your friends)
- Community (forums and messaging)
- Remote downloading of your games, so that when you get home, they're downloaded to your PC
The first release of the app will be a limited release, with it not coming packed with all the features you'd expect from a Steam app, but it looks like Valve will be keeping it up to date. It is not currently available to download from the store, but by the looks of it, we won't have to wait too much longer.
A screenshot of the app is also available:
