I've already voiced my opinions on a thread on the Steam Beta forums (will share links on the bottom of the post, if you want to see what I think along with give official feedback), but I'd like to hear yours.

If you don't have it but are looking to maybe try it out now, that may be a good idea if you want to start getting used to the big changes to Steam chat being made now, though I don't particularly recommend it otherwise.

Steam Chat Beta forums: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta/discussions/3/

Thread I made there:

First thing that happened on my end was that the chat window I was typing in wasn't even a window. Couldn't find it under Steam in the taskbar. That's all it took for me to opt right back out of the Beta. I'll leave the whole Beta-thing to the people who get less frustrated with the expected issues. =D

Yeah to be honest I may opt out of the beta too, I really prefer how it is now (non-beta). Though on the other hand, referring to what I said in my original post, this is going to happen either way, as developers always want to "improve" their platforms (like how YouTube is making all of those changes that everyone hates), so I figure I should just get used to this now. Though to be fair, this beta has a lot of objectively better features added to Steam chat, so I wouldn't entirely call this a "fixing what isn't broken" scenario.

I prefer the more simple steam chat system which could use a couple of improvements, they just changed everything and made it more complicated and broken apart from being a shitter version of discord.

it's too laggy. made me sound like a fucking robot

also 20x worse than discord, but it's basically discord when it was beta, change my mind.

I guessbits pretty nice to have it in steam but you'd be better of using discord tbh.

Its dog shit, extremely intrusive and too complicated to use.

Also i cant join via friends list on the beta nor check what server my friends are in, which is shit.
