Shopping Cart and private games – Now out of beta

The latest shopping cart update is out of beta and is now available to everyone on Steam across the desktop client, Steam Deck, and mobile.

Here’s a summary of the new features if you missed the initial blog post.

  • Inline gifting: Gift to multiple friends in one go, with streamlined messaging for hassle-free checkout.
  • One cart across all devices: Your cart now follows you seamlessly anywhere you’re signed in to Steam (including Deck and mobile), ensuring a unified shopping experience wherever you go.
  • Private purchasing: Maintain your privacy by marking games as private before purchase, giving you control from the start.
  • Private Apps: Mark selected games as private so they are only visible to you, giving you more control over what you share with friends. This lets you keep your Steam Library visible to your friends, so they can see what you are playing and join in, yet also keep a few of those games just to yourself.

During the beta period we made improvements and fixed bugs – thanks to your feedback! DLC for private apps will also default to private, but you can customize that from App Properties in the game’s Library Details page. And when you’re playing a private app you’ll be reminded of your status with a privacy indicator at the top of your Friends List.

You’ll find these new features next time you sign in to Steam – including on mobile devices and Steam Deck.

Your feedback is essential as we continue to improve. Share your thoughts with us, and stay tuned for more updates to checkout!
