View Full Version : Auto-download of Steam mobile purchase

I've noticed that you can be logged into one PC with Steam and still log into the mobile app on your phone. If a purchase is made via the phone, there should be an option to ask the PC client to begin downloading the game right away, assuming there is sufficient hard drive space.

This will be handy for people at work, as they will be able to begin playing the moment they get home, rather than have to manually find the new game in their games list and wait for it to download.

Definitely useful. I'd love it also for web browser purchases.

Great idea, and it should be fairly easily technologically feasible; they can use the same sort of back-end system that powers the notifications for things like inventory updates.

yeah good idea, this will be more helpful.
