Now that Steam has more competition than ever, especially with the arrival of the Epic Game Store and its exclusives , the people of Valve seem to be putting more effort into improving and renewing their platform .
New and improved Steam Library with Renewed Design
Recently it was the chat application, which has been evolving significantly so as not to be left behind in the era of Discord , and now the one that is renewed is the Library, although for now the new aspect is only available in beta, so we tell you How to try the new Steam now .
To test the new design and features of the Steam library you have to join the beta, you can do it directly from this link , which will open the parameters window of your Steam client. Needless to say, it is necessary that you have Steam installed on your computer first .
Participate in the Steam beta
From the Steam Client Parameters section you must change the Beta Participation status by clicking on the button that appears just below, there you must select Steam Beta Update .
Once you do this you should simply restart the application when prompted and upon returning you will see your new and renovated Library. It is important that you know that it is only the library that has a new design, the rest of the sections remain the same.
Among the new developments are the new collections , these are groups of games that you can create yourself with the games you choose, you just have to give it a name and start dragging games.
Another great thing about collections is that you can create them static or dynamic, the latter will update intelligently as your Steam library grows. In addition, these collections can be added to the home page of your library as Custom Shelves .
And it is that the new main page not only shows your games without more , but at the beginning you will see news about the games in your collection, a list of recent games so you can continue where you left off, and below your complete collection of games.
Another novelty is that you can organize all your games by multiple parameters : alphabetically, by release date, hours played, disk size, friends who play, and even by Metacritic score.
In general there is much more information and customization options , hopefully this is just one of several updates and future improvements for the Steam client, which although it is quite good, it would always be great if other aspects of the client also be renewed.
