Steam Chat is now available to test out during its public beta. Pretty much the antithesis of Steam Chat, a clunky and outdated service that's only really used as a last resort. You can join and leave the beta channel at any time by selecting Steam Settings Account. For those of you who still remember Myspace, the new friends list will also let you designate some friends as "favorites", so get ready to compete for that coveted status. The company didn't elaborate on the general improvements, but it did say that you can quickly see if your friends are in a voice chat right from your friends list, and that you should notice "clear, crisp voice quality before, during, and after your games". You can also see what exactly a friend is doing in the game, whether sitting at the main menu or now in a match. It's free. You don't have to chat like it's 2004.

Channels may be added to group chats in a similar manner that they are in Discord or Slack, with new persistent channels bring added for text or voice chat.

Valve will be working with Perfect World Games, a Chinese partner, to make a version of Steam for China.

Ivanka Trump's Proverb Leaves Chinese Internet Users Puzzled
Weibo users who agreed it wasn't a Chinese proverb tried to guess what saying she may have been trying to reference. Others took the opportunity to create their own "Chinese proverb", while some accused her of spreading "fake news".

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.

Discord has become the de facto chat tool for gamers. This keeps your IP address private, which masks your physical location and also prevents network attacks.

Steam Chat is available to trial now and is in beta on both the desktop client and in your web browser. You'll also know if they're grouped up, and where (approximately) they are in the game, so you don't drop directly into a hail of bullets (like usual).
