If they're really going for the "discord but on steam" route they really need to make their voice codec better cuz that shit draws twice as many resources as discord does.

looking at the beta it seems pretty damn cool also noticed they put your profile name where your account name used to be. Definitely a bit more streamer/youtuber friendly in that case.

I hope there will be an option for a small icon mode or something for the friendslist though, can't quite just eye ball my friendslist anymore if a bunch of people are online.
-slightly smaller font
-smaller avatar
-remove the Online (Blue that it currently is) / Busy (Lighter Blue/doesn't seem to be an option in the beta UI anyway though) / Away(Dark Blue it currently is in beta) / Offline(Gray) text and just use a color scheme for it

knsumeIf they're really going for the "discord but on steam" route they really need to make their voice codec better cuz that shit draws twice as many resources as discord does.

Do you mean the new one? Or the old one? Because they updated it:

Valve
  • Voice chat updated to new WebRTC-based backend
  • Voice chat uses high quality Opus encoding
oblaPossible end to Steam skinning if this guy speaks the truth?
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/metroforsteam#announcements/detail/1645384648842466293

I don't see how that's an end. It's obviously not supported at this time, but I would expect Valve to add official support for customizing CSS so that it isn't replaced at a later point.

google document links are still deleted;

friends categories are still there, but it's still not possible to order them. They are alphabetically sorted, and that's it. Besides they always appear below the new friends-in-game thing.

HuggesApparently there are multiple reports of getting a mighty increase in fps after installing the redesign beta.
https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/8qn8pd/new_steam_client_beta_update_improves_my_fps_a_lot/

Anyone got any benchmarks?

My FPS increase is only single digits, but I do notice the much lower usage of my CPU while idle.

Agreed on the lack of options sucking but even if they don't add the options to change that you can CSS edit them away anyways (just have to re-apply it after every update).

I've noticed that when I put my computer to sleep and then log back in, all my steam friends who have played games during that time will all pop up in the lower right hand corner and it's really annoying.

Already unusable, message windows blink and then disappear and can't be reopened from a specific person on my friends list. Super annoying when I'm actually trying to actively talk to that person. Guess I'll remain on the old client until it's actually fixed.

I never bothered trying this until today when valve apparently decided to make this the official client.

why is everything so laggy and how do i get my friends list to sort my personal grouping tags above the automatically generated who's playing what game groupings

edit: start steam with -nofriendsui to not have the new ui for the friends list at least

edit2: steam metro has a fix https://steamcommunity.com/groups/metroforsteam/discussions/11/1697176044371961193/?ctp=2#c1729827777336589731

- takes more clicks to get to your own profile

this isnt the whole redesign, im hoping the performance issues will be fixed when they revamp everything else. but maybe not who knows

also read this for skins https://steamcommunity.com/groups/metroforsteam#announcements/detail/1645384648842466293

and this is the pull request that added beta support to my skin, it looks like its pretty easy to ensure everything but your friends menu is still skinned. no guarantee it works on your skin, idk which of those colours and stuff are defined within air
