How to Download Steam Games to Your PC From Your Phone

Last Updated: Feb 18, 2024 by

Steam is a popular digital distribution platform for video games, with a vast library of titles available for purchase and download. However, sometimes games are removed from the platform, making them unavailable for purchase. But fear not, there is a way to download delisted Steam games to your PC from your phone. In this article, we will guide you through the process step by step.

Downloadable Content

Before we dive into the steps, it’s important to understand what downloadable content (DLC) is. DLC refers to additional content that can be downloaded for a game, such as new levels, characters, or items. This content is often released after the initial game launch and can be purchased separately from the base game.

Step 1: Install Steam on Your Phone

The first step is to download and install the Steam app on your phone. The app is available for both iOS and Android devices and can be found in the respective app stores. Once the app is installed, log in to your Steam account.

Step 2: Purchase the Game and DLC

Using the Steam app, search for the delisted game you want to download. If the game is still available for purchase, you can buy it directly from the app. If the game is no longer available for purchase, you can still buy any DLC that is available for the game.

Step 3: Enable Remote Downloads

To enable remote downloads, you will need to access your Steam settings. On the Steam app, tap on the menu icon in the top left corner and select “Settings.” Then, tap on “Steam Guard” and enable “Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator.” This will allow you to remotely download games and DLC to your PC.

Step 4: Download the Game and DLC

Once you have purchased the game and/or DLC, it will appear in your Steam library. To download it to your PC, go to your library and tap on the game or DLC. Then, tap on the “Install” button and select your PC as the destination for the download. The game or DLC will then begin downloading to your PC.

Step 5: Play the Game

Once the download is complete, you can launch the game from your PC and start playing. If you downloaded DLC, it will automatically be added to the base game and you can access it while playing.


By following these steps, you can easily download delisted Steam games and DLC to your PC from your phone. This allows you to access and play games that may no longer be available for purchase on the Steam platform. So next time you come across a delisted game you want to play, don’t worry, just follow these steps and you’ll be playing in no time.
