  • Steam China will give Chinese gamers their own platforn

The new Steam chat revamps how your friends list is organized, with a customizable "favorites" section up top followed by friends grouped up in a party or by which game they're now playing.

Valve has announced a new partnership with Chinese video game developer, Perfect World, to release a new version of Steam in China, called Steam China. 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.

"As a result, voice chat uses high quality Opus encoding, voice traffic is encrypted, and all traffic is sent through Steam servers rather than directly to peers", it explained.

CDC: Pre-cut melon cause of multistate salmonella outbreak
Check out the full list of recalled products for UPC codes and SKUs to make sure you're not accidentally eating salmonella. The FDA said it's working with the CDC to determine if the recalled products went to additional stores or states.


The friends list now has a customizable favorites section at the top, for quick access to the people, groups, and chats you care about most.

Within a group chat you have the option to add additional text channels, voice channels, member permissions. This keeps your IP address private, which masks your physical location and also prevents network attacks. As the new overhaul is only available in the client to Steam beta users, interested parties will need to go to the client's Settings and opt into the Steam Beta Update in the Accounts tab.

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.
