Have you been encountering a nasty bug when trying to use Remote Play on the Steam Deck but have been experiencing an infinite loading screen that stops you from using it entirely? Well luckily, this will change right now as a new client update was just released to fix this issue!

Valve released a very small update that fixes the infinite loading animation when you are using Remote Play to stream from another PC, so you should be all set to use it again. There was also a second fix for the "Verifying Installation" message showing up on every startup, or coming from Desktop Mode to Game Mode. And that's about it from this update. It was a very small one, but definitely great to see, considering it had two necessary fixes!

Steam Deck Client Update 2/28/24 Changelog:


  • Fixed the 'Verifying Installation' message incorrectly showing on every startup.

Remote Play

  • Fixed infinite loading animation when streaming from another PC
