One of the major new features is the ability to send images and the ability to more easily make group conversations. In addition, the call functionality is said to have received significant upgrades, increasing the quality of audio and lowering latency.

The new chat user interface can also be accessed via the web by visiting a special Steam chat page and logging in.

The new user interface is said to be the first part of a larger Steam redesign. This redesign will be making use of the same frameworks that were used to build the new Steam chat.
