Valve has released the public beta of Steam Chat, a new client that allows users to chat on the Steam platform easily. The company said that many of these changes would also let it make more updates to web-based Steam components in the future, which should help improve the core experience offered by the nigh-ubiquitous game marketplace. It's free. You don't have to chat like it's 2004. Steam, meanwhile, is one of the world's largest digital distribution platforms on PC, offering over 20,000 games to people around the world.

China is now the world's biggest video games market, valued at more than $25 billion in 2016, according to a report from IHS Markit. Open up a conversation with a friend or a group chat to send and receive messages with text, pictures, video, tweets and voice calls.

The new friends list enables favorite friends, groups, and chats to be maintained at the top of the list, where they're easily accessible, and they can also be grouped by game or by party, making it easier to keep track of who's playing what, and who's playing together. Soon, the AOL-esque chat of yore will be gone, replaced by the slick, fancy Discord chat of the present.

That depends on the signing committee and the coach. "I'm just saying that to win the Champions League you need to have the best". And he is very good, " Messi was quoted by Goal to have told Sport .

It is easier to start a voice chat now to get everyone join the same channel within seconds of posting the voice chat link in group chat. Your IP address is private in the new system to prevent attacks and privacy issues. Valve says that Steam Chat will be available to all Steam users in the future.

In many ways, the new Steam Chat resembles the popular voice-chat service Discord, so gamers already using that service will likely be familiar with the functionality already.
