Valve's latest experiment on Steam Labs is a chat filter that blocks profanity and slurs on the platform.
In a new blog post, the company discussed its 11th experiment, which takes the filter system it built for its own titles like Counter-Strike: GO and Dota, as well as Bungie's Destiny 2, and brings it to the entire Steam platform.
Users can customise their filter to control whether they see bad language or sluts and each person can customise the words that will be filtered out.
This follows Valve launching Steam Labs back in July 2019. Initially, it was largely focused on discoverability – something that developers had said had become an issue on the platform – with the company bringing these experimental changes to Steam in September of last year.
Other experiments since have included a News Hub, Steam Interactive Recommender and Play Next on the Steam Library. The firm is also bringing built-in beta tests to its platform.
