Is scheduling of game updates ever going to be implemented for the bandwidth conscious users, so they can schedule it at off-peak times, for example?

Any chance that one of these days one of these betas will say something about being able to install Steam games to a specific location other than the Steam installation directory?

I went on the Steam app after downloading the beta Steam client, but I do not see any options for remote games management. I'll presume the app needs to be updated before it is available.

Yeah, how do we enable remote management for either "web" (I'm assuming internet browsers?) or mobile devices?

Yeah also now browsers seem to think Steam isn't installed for some reason?

New bug with beta, launching any non steam game shortcut crashes steam with no warning or error. Just closes instantly, and has to be relaunched, also the shortcut doesn't react or launch.

I also had this problem with the last beta, it stopped when the official build came out.

Anyone managed to get remote management working? The community games list is still the same as it was for me. Can't do anything with it.
