From Steam Chat to Steam Link
Steam Chat for mobile app is a solid entry to a crowded market. But it doesn't matter any different. People who already use Steam Chat on the desktop client will manage it, but we can't see people leaving other chat apps for it.
Steam Chat gets hot on the helm of the Steam Link app that lets you play PC games on iPhone or iPad. While Steam Link has been available on Android since May 2018, it took Valve another 12 months to convince Apple to approve the app.
