The fresh new Steam library design is finally out of its beta stage and is officially available to everyone who uses Valve’s platform.

The new design isn’t just a pretty face, though. There have been plenty of updates to make your Steam experience far more streamlined and convenient than ever.

The brand new Home design now shows you game updates along with your recently played games, what your friends are currently doing, and your collections.

Game pages have also been revamped, making them far easier to navigate. Pages now have all the important information such as developer updates, achievements, community posts, and friend activity all in one place.

You can now also add ‘shelves’ in your game library. Shelves allow you to organise your own games into custom collections, including really custom things like “Games that make a fun beeping noise” or “Games that don’t feature the colour orange.” You can also simply just organise your games by things like play-time or genre.

There’s also a new post game summary feature, which appears at the top of your game details page. This feature makes it easy to see your achievements, screenshots, and trading cards earned during your most recent play session.

If the update hasn’t hit you yet, don’t worry! If you want to try and force the prompt that asks you to update, you can try closing and re-opening Steam multiple times. Alternatively, you can simply wait for it to eventually ask you.
