As usual, the latest Steam update has been posted, and this time it talks about the delivery service’s “Friends system” which is nearing the end of its beta phase.
Friends allows you to see when your friends are playing games, and lets users chat with each other both inside and outside of many Steam games. There are also a number of additional features we’ll be adding to it over time. Early next week, we’ll be updating Steam with a convenient way to join the Friends beta.
The update also discloses word that Valve plans on updating older Counter-Strike: Source maps and adding HDR support to them.
