Today, steamVR 2.0 was released as a beta release. We see this as the first major step toward our goal of bringing all of what's new on the Steam platform into VR.
If you sign up for this beta you will get a new UI with lots of new features:
Updated keyboard with support for new languages, emojis, and themes.
Improved store that puts new VR releases front and center.
This is 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 will give us a chance to iron out the kinks as more and more people try it out. As with all betas, SteamVR 2.0 will get better and better as we prepare it for its eventual full public launch.
To test out the new UI, choose between the SteamVR Beta and the Steam Client Beta.
