Valve’s Steam platform is arguably the most prevalent source of PC gaming content and digital delivery, and with that is always receiving TLC for new updates, features, and additions to improve the system – in this case, the latest update to the Steam Client Beta that adds some nifty new features and even a (slightly) new coat of paint.

A new update released for the Steam Client Beta includes a variety of new bug fixes and enhancements to Steam overall, such as improvements for the newly-added In-Home Streaming feature, and many other small changes to improve stability. However, the update also brings some more notable features to the service and its Steam Client Beta, such as a slight refresh to the client’s look from previous versions.

In addition, the new update also brings a “Hidden Games Feature,” where users can select (from the “Set Categories” menu) to put their games in a “Hidden” list of their library, whether they want to hide already-completed games from their (ever-growing) Steam Library, remove those shameful titles that anyone would be embarrassed to play, or simply just don’t want to look at the volumes of games in their library that never get played.

The update for the Steam Client Beta are available now, with users needing to opt in to the Beta features through the Steam Client itself: full details on the changes and updates are available here through Valve.
