• Steam to Enable Remote Downloads

    Discussion in 'News' started by Chris_D, May 2, 2012.

    jasonr has posted over at the Steam Users' Forums details of a Steam Client Beta which is available.

    This one is of particular interest because it allows you to remotely download and install games. If you leave your main PC running with Steam logged in, then you can log on from any other PC and trigger a game to be downloaded.

    There are conflicting reports over on their forums that the feature is still not working, even with the Client Beta enabled. However, this is certainly going to be an ideal new feature for some, and hopefully a precursor to having similar functionality built into the Steam mobile client.

    The day Steam gives me the ability to remotely turn on my computer to start downloading games then I'll be truly impressed. ;)

    I can't say I'm really a fan of leaving my computer on all day in case I want to download something. Big waste of electricity. :p
