There are some situations where it would be useful to be logged into your PC and Steam Deck at the same time. For example, you may have a friend at your house and want to play a game with them. Does Steam allow you to do this? Let’s jump in and find out.
Can You Play Steam Deck And PC At The Same Time?
No, you are unable to play on the steam deck and PC at the same time on the same steam account. Unfortunately Steam only lets you be logged into one device at a time and the Steam Deck is no different.
The main reason someone would want to do this is likely to play with a friend or a family member. If your friend has a Steam account and has the game you ‘s want to play together he can log into his steam account on the Steam Deck or PC. This is the easiest way to play with each other.
There is however one workaround for this. Playing your device in offline mode.
Play Your Steam Deck In Offline Mode
If you wanted to play two separate games on your PC and Steam deck you can do so by putting the Steam deck in offline mode.
When you play the Steam Deck in offline mode you will be able to play any offline games on the Steam Deck while someone else can access the rest of your library on PC. This works great if you don’t plan on playing online with each other.
So, unfortunately, you will not be able to play games on your PC while a friend plays on your Steam Deck. The only way to get around this is by having two different Steam accounts but that means purchasing games on both accounts.
