Valve’s quietly added a new feature for those set to receive beta updates in Steam, the ability to remotely manage content downloads. Yes, that means you can manage your Steam library from any computer, or even via your mobile phone. Instructions are as follows:
* Log into your Steam account online from your computer or mobile device at www.steampowered.com
* Visit your Games list by navigating to the Community and then clicking GAMES in the secondary navigation bar. If you’re logged into the Steam client, the games list will reflect the installation state of your library on that machine.
* Locate your game and tap the install button to initiate your remote download.
To enroll in Steam’s beta program, simply navigate to File -> Settings, select the Account tab and open up Change… under Beta Participation. From there, click the dropdown menu to opt-in. Once again, this goes to show why Steam is several steps ahead of the competition.
