The new Steam Mobile App sees its framework revamped completely, and it’s been redesigned with today and the near future in mind. The updated version of the Steam App keeps everything that worked for its users while adding QR code sign-in, smarter notifications, and an improved library. You can also add multiple accounts to the Steam App (not limited to Steam Guard like the older version) with the newer and better rendition.
Steam says they’re pushing a limited beta first in order to get feedback from the users, and when they gathered enough information, they’ll work on what’s necessary, polish the product and release it in full.
The gaming platform specifically encourages users who have been using the Steam Mobile App already and are willing to send feedback, preferably as soon as possible to speed things up.
