Steam is one of the largest digital game distribution platforms, with thousands of games available for purchase. Some games on Steam offer subscription options, allowing you to access premium content or abilities on a recurring basis.
If you have an active subscription through Steam, you may want to view and manage your subscriptions. Here is a guide on how to view your Steam game subscriptions list using both desktop and mobile.
Table of Contents
View Subscriptions on Desktop
To view your subscriptions on desktop, follow these steps:
- Open the Steam client on your computer and log into your account
- Click on your account name in the upper right corner
- Select “Account Details” from the dropdown menu
- Under the “Store & Purchase History” section, find “My Subscriptions” on the right side My Subscriptions on Steam
- Here you will see a list of all your active Steam subscriptions
From this page, you can:
- View subscription details like price, billing date, etc.
- Cancel subscriptions if desired
- Manage payment methods for subscriptions
If you don’t see the “My Subscriptions” section, it likely means you do not have any active subscriptions through Steam at the moment.
View Steam Workshop Subscriptions
In addition to game subscriptions, you may also be subscribed to Steam Workshop content for certain games. The Workshop allows players to create and share custom content.
To view Workshop subscriptions:
- Click on “Community” at the top of Steam
- Select “Workshop” from the dropdown menu
- On the right side, under “Your Workshop Files”, click on “Subscribed Items”
Here you will see all the Workshop content you are currently subscribed to. You can also filter subscriptions by game using the dropdown menu.
View Subscriptions on Mobile
To view your subscriptions on the Steam mobile app:
- Open the Steam app and log into your account
- Tap the ☰ menu icon in the upper left corner
- Select “Support”
- Scroll down and tap “My Account”
- Tap “Data Related to Your Steam Account”
- Select “Subscriptions”
This will display all of your active Steam subscriptions that you can view and manage.
Manage Your Steam Subscriptions
From the subscriptions page on either desktop or mobile, you have a few options:
- View Details: See information like subscription price, billing date, payment method, etc.
- Cancel Subscription: Stop the subscription immediately and deactivate any future payments/billing. You will still have access until the current billing period ends.
- Change Billing Date: For some subscriptions, you may be able to shift your billing date earlier or later.
- Update Payment Method: Change the payment method associated with a subscription.
Review your subscriptions periodically to ensure you aren’t paying for anything unused. Cancel any subscriptions you no longer want or need.
Why Steam Offers Subscriptions
Steam subscriptions allow game publishers to offer continual monetization models rather than one-time purchases. Reasons publishers may offer subscriptions include:
- Granting access to premium downloadable content (DLC)
- Providing monthly virtual currency allowances
- Removing ads or cosmetic limitations
- Enabling multiplayer/online features
- Offering early access to new content
As a player, subscriptions can provide great value if you play a game extensively. But review your subscriptions to ensure you utilize them enough to justify the cost.
Tips for Managing Steam Subscriptions
Here are some tips for effectively managing subscriptions on Steam:
- Check subscriptions at least monthly to cancel unused ones
- Set calendar reminders before billing dates to re-evaluate subscriptions
- Take advantage of discounted subscription rates if offered
- Don’t forget about Workshop subscriptions and remove unused ones
- Use parental controls if managing subscriptions for a child
Staying on top of subscriptions will help you avoid paying for something you don’t need or use.
