Steam’s dynamic cloud sync allows players to easily play across PCs

Steam is adding a new feature that makes it easier for players to access video games “seamlessly” from different PCs. Valve announced a new feature, called Dynamic Cloud Sync, via a blog post. The feature was added as part of a series of updates to support its upcoming Steam Deck console, but will benefit any player who has the option enabled.

Valve says the feature will “automatically upload all modified saved game data to the cloud before the device goes to sleep.” That means if you close your Steam Deck without exiting the game, it doesn’t matter: You can get it back from anywhere on any other PC device. When you return to the Steam Deck, that progress will be uploaded before waking the console.

“We anticipate that users will frequently suspend their Steam Deck without exiting the game, which is often the case with other handheld gaming devices,” Valve said. “With Dynamic Cloud Sync, if they later choose to play on another device (whether a PC or another Steam Deck), their progress will be there waiting for them.”

Of course, for players to benefit, developers need to enable this option for their games. If it’s not enabled, Valve says “Steam will still monitor when game save data is changed on the Steam Deck,” but will prompt players who paused their games on the Steam Deck to go back there and close. game before playing on another device – otherwise they will continue without saving progress from the Steam Deck.

Valve’s Steam Deck Announced July 2021. The handhold console is expected to ship in February after being delayed in November. Steam Deck devices range in price from $399 to $649, depending on storage capacity. Not all games work on consoles, but Valve has an easy rating system to determine what will work well.
