Valve has expanded Steam’s search function. It is now possible to search by tags, developers, publishers and franchises. Also, the PC game store’s search engine is less sensitive to misspelled words, Valve claims.
For example, if users search for the term “dungeon crawler,” they can view a list of games with all games that have that tag. The same goes for when users search for specific game series, or developers and publishers. Previously, it was only possible to search for games via the main Steam search bar.
In addition, Valve says that typos or misspelled words can be better processed. If you search for ‘hgwart’, Hogwarts Legacy will still appear between the results, while no results were found before. The search changes apply to both the web and mobile versions of Steam.
In April, Steam released a new Steam Client beta with some major additions to the game platform’s UI. For example, the in-game overlay has been given a toolbar with various new apps and widgets, including a digital notepad for the specific game that is currently being played.
