Twelve years have passed since Valve has released the Steam application. Well, it seems that the company has just released the application for Windows Phones and we’re pretty sure that this will make many users very happy.
If you have never used the Steam application, you should know that this digital distribution platform has been developed by Valve Corporation and it is offering social network services, multiplayer gaming and digital rights management (also known as DRM).
Once you install the Steam application on your device, you will be able to purchase games, install them on your device and even play them with your friends online. Steam also comes with friend lists, groups, game voice and chat functionality and more.
In addition, Steam is using Steamworks, which is an application programming interface (API) that includes in-game achievements, networking, matchmaking, micro-transactions and many more. The good thing is that Windows Phone users will be able to use the Steam application in order to chat with their friends, purchase games or even make trades.
Steam was available for Windows Phone for quite a while, but it was not functioning properly and this was the reason why the developers had to delay the “official” release date of the application. In addition, we remind you that until now there was no mobile authenticator for Windows Phone handsets, which made Steam trading a hassle on these mobile devices.
The Steam application for Windows Phone can be downloaded and installed from the Windows Store. Once you install the application, you will need to use your username and password to log into your Steam account.
