When one thinks of Steam, its chat capabilities aren’t often the first thing that comes to mind.
Still, it’s clear that Valve considers chat to be an integral part of Steam, as it now has its very own app.
Valve has launched a new Steam Chat app on iOS and Android, allowing you to always have that aspect of Steam at your fingertips.
Of course, chat was already available on mobile through the main Steam app, but it never really felt like a fully-fleshed out feature.
With this dedicated Steam Chat app, it seems that Valve is attempting to emulate the desktop chat experience as closely as possible.
That obviously means that you can see your friends list – a chat app wouldn’t be very useful without that – so you’ll be able to see which of your friends are logged into Steam and what, if anything, they’re currently playing.
