While Steam is still a hugely popular platform for game shopping and gaming, its mobile app hasn’t had a refreshed look in years. That ends today as Steam releases a new limited beta of mobile apps for users.
Today, Steam announced to users that a new app has arrived, complete with a new user interface and built on a brand new framework. The new app gets a brand new look that blends well with the awesome SteamOS available on the Steam Deck .
When using the new app, there are a few new features that make the app even better . First of all, the notification system has been overhauled. It’s easier to see exactly what’s going on in your group of friends without skipping a beat. Secondly, the library view has a new and improved look. However, you will now receive a news feed to help you discover similar games you might want to try.
There Is Now A Brand New Authentication System
The important innovation that has been expected for a long time is a brand new identity verification system . Prior to the new Steam app beta, the Steam Authenticator had sequential codes with a limited time to new login. This has already proven to be a frustrating system that keeps you safe at the cost of time and patience.
The validator for the beta of the new Steam application is quite simple. Simply scan a QR code to sign in to the new location . You also have the option to tap a confirmation button when it looks like Google’s 2FA system if you don’t want to do that.
