Valve introduces Steam Music

Publish date:

Steam is to introduce a brand new bit of functionality – Steam Music.

It's not a brand new store front selling music, however. Instead the functionality offers users the chance to integrate their music collection into their Steam library.

The key here is that gamers will be able to listen to their tunes while gaming without having to have a dedicated music player open in the background. Steam will integrate album art, too.

Those wishing to take part in the Steam music beta should join the Steam Music community group, with members then being invited into the program in waves prior to a full rollout.
