Today Steam is seeing a lot of unplanned downtime that are not available to users for several common services. There are several social media posts claiming that nothing works. The society and retailers are inaccessible. The Unofficial Steam Status Twitter report still reports that the community is down at 12:43 p.m. Valve has yet to issue and officially comment on this matter, so nobody is sure what happened. This account is not a Valve affiliate, but it is a community-based project designed to track service status.

Steam is a video distribution service developed by Valve for those who are not aware of it. It was introduced as a way for Valve to automatically provide updates to all its Games since September 2003. The service was subsequently extended to include titles from third parties. The online and mobile digital storefront was also included in Steam. It also provides management of digital rights, video streaming, matchmaking and social networking.

Some features include game performance, matchmaking, micro transactions and user support via the Steam Workshop.

Steam is currently the leading digital PC gaming platform, with over 75% of the market since 2013.There is currently no word on the end of the unplanned downtime but this situation will be closely monitored.
