Redeem Steam Codes Through Web Browser (Mobile & PC)
If you want to redeem a game key or use Steam codes, you can’t do so through the mobile application; in fact, you can’t use Steam’s mobile app for any codes at all. The only way you can redeem Steam codes on mobile is using your browser and not the Steam’s application. Here’s how you can redeem Steam codes and keys on mobile and PC:
- Go to Steam Activate a product page.
- Now Sign in to Steam your account.
- Enter the redeem code.
That’s it. You have successfully redeemed your code!
It’s frustrating that you can’t currently redeem a game through the Steam app on mobile. However, Valve might add that feature in the future.
