To add a friend, tap on the ‘Search’ icon at the top right corner of your screen. Here, you can search for your friend’s username or their email address associated with their Steam account.


If you don’t know their username or email address, ask them to share it with you. Alternatively, they can also give you a link to their profile that will allow you to add them as a friend directly.
