Steam has updated with revised chat features. The revised functionality was announced last month and has been available in beta, but with the latest update it becomes available to all users. It contains new grouping features, a Favorites tag, and more details about what your friends are interested in.
The Big Chat Update lets you put a handful of friends in a favorite box at the top of the list so you can always see what to do in a moment. Friends will also be automatically grouped by game and party, making it easier to jump in and play with them. The friend menu will show you more detail about what your friends are doing in a game as well. Finally, group cats can be pulled together more easily.
The actual chat also has several in-line features. Videos, photos and tweets are visible right within the chat area, and you can drag new friends and drop them right into an existing group cat. If you like your group, you can save it for future reference. The persistent group cats make it easier to find your friends for a game and the voice will continue while chatting before, during and after the game. This update is now available on the Steam client, but you can also try it out on the web client.
Steam has recently revealed its midnight chart of the best sellers and most popular games, including games such as Jurassic World Evolution, Far Cry 5, and Kingdom Come Deliverance.
