Steam overview

Steam is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute a large number of games and related media entirely over the Internet, from small independent efforts to larger, more popular games. Steam is set apart from similar services primarily by its community features, completely automated game update process, and its use of in-game functionality.

Instantly access your favorite games

  • Over 1,100 games are available to purchase, download, and play from any computer. Check out the new releases, indie hits, casual favorites and everything in between.

Join the Steam Community

  • Find someone to play with, meet up with friends, connect with groups of similar interests, and host and join chats, matches, and tournaments.

Chat with your friends while gaming

  • See when your friends are online or playing games and easily join the same games together. Chat with your buddies, or use your microphone to communicate in any game.

Automatic game updates

  • Hunting for patches and downloading from unorganized Web sites is so twentieth-century. On Steam, your games stay up-to-date by themselves. No hassles.

What’s new in version June 14

  • Updated Steam Client notifications, with additional settings allowing you to choose which notifications you'll see, and where you'll see them
  • Visual and usability improvements in dialogs, menus, fonts, and colors - including screenshot manager, achievements, and more
  • An overhauled in-game overlay (accessible via Shift+Tab), with an updated design, new features, and more customizability
  • New notes functionality with rich text formatting, image pasting, and offline functionality. Multiple notes can be saved per-game, and they are accessible via the in-game overlay, desktop client, and Steam Deck
  • New pinning functionality - panels from the in-game overlay can now be "pinned" (with adjustable opacity) so they are viewable while in-game
  • Updated controller configurator is now part of the overlay when a gamepad is connected
  • Mac & Linux versions of Steam have been updated to enable hardware acceleration

And now it's updated to v020 (164158817). I wish MacUpdate would sort this out. There is no v4.0.
