First talked about in May


 

Valve has dropped a major update for Steam that adds full featured community services to the game-download distribution software.

This move to create a community services to wrap around Steam is a natural for Valve, which claims to have more than 13 million subscribers to Steam. Some of the new features added to Steam include personalized profile member pages, the ability to create groups/clans, game scheduling features, VOIP chat (both in and out of the game) and the ability to track players’ in-game and out-of-game performances. A variety of games that are hosted within Steam can access these features directly from within the game.

Steam users will get their Steam client updated automatically upon their next connection to Steam.
