Valve is bringing the Steam platform to mobile devices. Today, the developer announced the beta release of a Steam mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
Gamers can download the Steam app today from iTunes or the Android Marketplace and log in with their credentials to express interest in joining the beta. Valve said users will be added to the beta as the service "ramps up."
When the Steam app launches in full, it will allow users to chat with their Steam friends, browse community groups and profiles, view screenshots and user-generated content, read news, and keep up with sales Steam may be running.
With its new mobile app, Valve joins the likes of Bungie, Microsoft, Activision, the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, and others in offering an on-the-go dedicated application for its service.
