The Steam beta client is available publicly by opting in for the beta branch via the Steam settings window. Those who opt in will see a new user interface that is said to make it easier to communicate with friends.
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.
