Steam Update Adds Remote Download Function for Everyone

Posted on May 17, 2012 AT 07:53am

Valve has officially launched the new remote download feature for all Steam users after an obviously successful beta test.

A new Steam client will download upon logging into the service that enables the feature. You can set a download running on your PC at home via your mobile’s web browser and the Steam Store. The feature also allows you to re-download past purchases and have them installed for when you get home. This is definitely going to lead to a lot of spontaneous purchases during the commute to work.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
