Valve launches a new Steam Labs experiment known as News Hub

Valve has released a News Hub for Steam as a Steam Labs experiment.

The new feature - found here - keeps users up to date with the latest news regarding live streams, events and content updates.

"Whether you're at work, on the bus, or playing at home, you can now browse a personalized hub to easily find the updates, announcements, and events from the games you play and games you are interested in," said Valve.

Furthermore, Steam users can adjust it to their personal preferences. There are various options you can tick - recommended, following, wishlist and more. If there are certain pieces of news that consumers have no interest in, they can opt-out of getting those stories.

The News Hub will look at your library of games to determine what stories it shares, including sales and new games that are related to already played titles.

The new feature has been designed for use on both PC and mobile devices.

Last month, a Steam Labs experiment to make it easier to filter searches was fully released. A new experimental feature - Play Next - was launched in February. Valve launched Steam Labs in July 2019. It is designed to allow its users to see what innovative features the firm is planning for its storefront.

Since being updated, Steam's library has seen a 300 per cent increase in user reviews.
