Steam Mobile Now Features Remote Downloads
Start your PC downloads on the move.
Great news for those PC gamers on the go who make use of the Steam Mobile app: you can now queue up game downloads from your mobile device so that they're ready to get stuck into just as soon as you've finished doing boring stuff like visiting your grandmother or going shopping.
As well as allowing you to download those juicy new games remotely, you'll also be able to view the progress of the download, so you can decide whether to dally a little longer at lunch or rush home to get stuck into the latest blockbuster.
Previously, Steam's mobile app was limited to making store purchases, viewing news updates and managing your friends list. Of course, you'll need to leave your PC running at home in order to take advantage of this brand new feature. Remote downloads can also now be managed from a web browser, should you find yourself anxiously counting down the hours at work!
