Take your Steam friends, groups, and conversations with you wherever you go.
The Steam Chat app includes many key features of the desktop Steam client chat, including:
Friends List – See who’s in game or online at a glance. You'll see your custom categories and favorites bar just like you can on your PC. (repeated above)
Rich Chat – Your chats get even better with higher fidelity links, videos, tweets, GIFs, Giphy, Steam emoticons, and more.
Invite Links – Add new friends on Steam with a link. Generate an invite link you can text or email.
Customizable Notifications – Mobile notifications mean you'll never miss a message or game invite. You can customize your notifications per friend, group chat, and chat channel.
Group Chats - Get everyone on the same page. Groups make it easier to do things like stay in touch with your communities and organize game night with your best friends.
- Added support for fully animated stickers
- Other minor bugfixes and performance improvements

What I think & A Suggestion
First of all, I want to say that I like the chat application and I have never encountered with any kind of problems so far (I am using iPhone XR. ) I don’t know why some people are complaining about Valve making a separate chat application instead of updating the mobile application with the new chat. I believe that Valve / Steam Team or who developed this app should have released it before but I know that they are taking their time and making sure it works well.
Here’s a suggestion (I don’t know how to explain it properly so I will try my best to explain it.) I know that we can use the “/store” command to show a game to our friends, and when we do that it says “view store page” but we should be able to view the game’s store page in the application instead of opening the store page from Safari application.
I'm quite happy with this new app. The previous, outdated "Steam Mobile" app would not send messages 50% of the time, and the chat would go offline constantly.
This new app actually solves those problems, and also adds the ability to tap links to view them in safari, rather than having to copy+paste them like in the old Steam Mobile app. It also lets you see Steam emotes, and view pictures from the chat itself.
I'm rating this a 3 out of 5 however, simply because they should have updated the old Steam Mobile with this as opposed to making a whole new app. Now I have to have both apps - one for Steam Guard Mobile Authentication, one for chat.
Another gripe is the fact that I can't select chat history to copy it.
If the latter problem is fixed, I'll raise my rating to 4 stars.
Firstly, I can’t understand why you would release this, instead of give the steam app an overhaul with this rolled up in it. Having 2 apps now, I don’t like it. Also, why are steam chats so... inconsistent? Start a chat in game with someone on the PC, even on the new iOS steam chat, no conversation. Then, there’s voice. Many of us have been using discord for voice, and using it happily on our phones and iPads. I would honestly love to ditch it and use steam more or less exclusively, but until it has mobile support, no can do. Now I realize steam is more of a sales platform, and for that I can’t be too harsh on the company itself for providing inferior inter connectivity tools, but the voice and text chat and overall social support on mobile is bare bones and clunky as it is.
