    Steam's pushed quite a big update on their beta channel - I'm not sure whether I like it or not.

    Off the top of my head, I can see these needing fixing:
    • The new message sound isn't great - stick to the old one!
    • Steam UI is still incredibly clunky, probably because it's just a glorified Internet Explorer
    But really, it does have some positives:
    • Much easier to see what your friends are doing at a glance
    • Voice chat seems to be more like Discord or TeamSpeak, using channels rather than 1:1

    Screenshots?

    I've only seen little bits of it and I don't want to opt in to the beta since I'm on Mac and Steam only manages to work half of the time as it is.

    It wasn't quite stable enough to use so I quickly changed back.

    Messages are quite broken on it, the window keeps disappearing (or it did wehn i last used it)

    Seems I'm now on it, it's alright.

    Will report back when I've had more time with it.

    Yeah, it was a joke - it works fine it's just an awful app in general.

    Doesn't it just run a really crappy version of internet explorer? Or Chromium
