SteamVR 2.0 Beta

Valve announces SteamVR 2.0 is in beta, offering enhanced support for the world of virtual reality, which is also still in beta. Word is the goal of the update is to bring current features from the more mainline side of Steam to your HMD:
Greetings! Today we are shipping SteamVR 2.0 in beta. We see this is as the first major step toward our goal of bringing all of what's new on the Steam platform into VR.

Users who opt into this beta will notice a new UI with lots of added features:

  • Most of the current features of Steam and Steam Deck are now part of SteamVR
  • Updated keyboard with support for new languages, emojis, and themes
  • Integration of Steam Chat and Voice Chat
  • Improved Store that puts new and popular VR releases front and center

This is just the beginning of SteamVR 2.0's journey, and we'll have more to share in the coming weeks and months as we collect feedback and work on the features mentioned above. This beta will give us a chance to iron out the kinks as more and more people try it out. As with all betas, this means SteamVR 2.0 will get better and better as we prepare it for its eventual full public launch.
