Another Beta update is available for the Steam Deck, with Valve adding in just a few more "Friday fixes". It's available in the Beta and Preview channels. You can opt into this in: Settings > System > Steam Update Channel.
Here's what's new:
- Improved login times for users with large libraries.
- Fixed links to store/discussions/etc in the Library.
- Fixed crash when trying to view emojis in virtual keyboard in desktop mode.
- Fixed improper DPI scaling on initial load.
- Decreased load time of virtual keyboard and standalone controller configurator in desktop mode after the first time.
- Properly resize virtual keyboard in desktop mode.
- Streamlined joining a voice chat in groups without multiple voice chat channels. The footer button will now directly join or create a temporary channel rather than go to the voice chat management dialog.
As someone with 2,623 games in their Steam Library, I very much appreciate the updates to make the experience smoother because login time and initial load time on Deck is a bit slow for large libraries.
What are you hoping for Valve to fix or add next to the Steam Deck?
ICYMI: the previous Beta had some bigger changes, and Valve clarified fan details.
