Once a active client is running on Mac or PC gamers can then manage games, download pre-loads, new releases, or any new purchases, as soon as they’re available. Steam explains how to get started with the new Steam Remote Download service:
“To kick off a remote download, simply visit your Games list on the Steam Community site, which can be accessed from your own profile using a web browser or the Steam mobile app on iOS or Android. If logged into the latest update of the Steam client on a PC or Mac, there you’ll see which games are currently installed, and have the ability to install others from your library. Or, seamlessly complete your online purchase with remote installation: When a remote session is detected, the Steam store will ask whether you’d like to download your new purchases immediately. “
