Steam is one of the top digital game distributors around on Mac and Windows. There is also an Android app that allows you to connect to your Steam Account. From the mobile app, you can view content, make game purchases and redeem codes

What Is a Steam Code?

There are two types of Steam codes that can be redeemed on the mobile app, computer or on the website. The first is the code you receive when you purchase a game on Steam. You will then use this code to activate and install the new game on your Steam Account.

The second is the best gift you can get as a gamer! This code comes in the form of a gift card or wallet code. Your Steam account will be credited with the amount of the gift card or wallet code by redeeming this. You can then use this for games or other items on Steam
