Valve Launches Beta for Completely Overhauled Set of Steam Chat Features

Above Steam is heading to China

Steam now publishes over 20 new games a day

Valve has released the public beta of Steam Chat, a new client that allows users to chat on the Steam platform easily.

All chat features are also available on the Web.

Valve has also urged beta users to report any bugs they find, over here.

Navarro apologizes for 'special place in hell' remark about Canada's prime minister
From a big-picture perspective, there are concerns about how the rest of the world sees the United States globally, he added. The summit ended in disarray: US President Donald Trump said the US would not endorse the joint statement from the summit .

The new Steam Chat's first improvement comes in the form of an upgraded friends list. You can now add favourite friends, groups, and chats to the top of the chat window for easy access.

Once your friends start playing games you will see their status and if they are in a party with other friends.

The friends list now has a dedicated area for group chats, which can range from casual chats with a couple of friends to larger communities.

Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson engaged; Looney Tunes return; Kimmel vs Ted Cruz
VVS1, for those unfamiliar with diamonds, means that only an expert can find flaws in the diamond, and must use a 10X microscope. The timeline of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's whirlwind romance has officially gotten even juicier.

You can start group chats with a click on the plus icon; any chat that you create this way is listed immediately under group chats in the interface.

Improvements include a simplified "favorites" list that will pin certain friends to the top, an expanded detail set for what each friend is playing and where they are in the game (for instance, sitting on the main menu or facing off in deathmatch), as well as organisational changes, such as grouping friends by the game they're now playing or the party they're in.

In-line images, video, tweets, audio, and other media can now be shared in the chat client, and you'll be able to share trade offer links as well.

Greece and Macedonia reach deal in 27-year dispute over name
But Greeks seem cool to any deal involving the continued use of the name " Macedonia " by their northern neighbour. The country was also accepted to the United Nations in 1993 as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

I touched on it before, but Steam's voice-chat feature was horrendously insecure before, blaring out your IP address anytime you spoke. No bones about it: Steam's new persistent group chats are basically Discord. Point your favorite browser to https://steamcommunity.com/chat and sign in to your account to use the new functionality. Soon, the AOL-esque chat of yore will be gone, replaced by the slick, fancy Discord chat of the present.
