Steam remote downloads system entering Beta

/ 7 years ago

A new Steam feature that allows customers to remotely set new purchases downloading has just entered beta, Valve has announced.

As reported by Rock Paper Shotgun, the new addition lets you purchase a title on Steam from anywhere in the world and immediately have it start downloading on your home machine, providing you’ve left it running.

It’s currently only available via Steam’s beta client, which is accessible via the Settings menu on your account page.

There’s a little more detail of how to get started over on Steam itself.
