Steam Music Player is Now Officially Available to Everyone

By   /   Sep 25, 2014

Want to listen to some music while you play games on Steam? Now you can with this Steam Music Player.

Valve’s Digital Distribution service went through a lot of major changes recently with its Discovery Update and another new addition came just yesterday in the form of Steam Music Player.

Over the summer this feature was rolled out to some beta users but is now available to anyone who is running the latest client. Just guide the music player towards your MP3 collection and the client will integrate itself with it.

The music player is accessible in Steam client overlay and you can play music without having to alt-tab your way back to the desktop.

If you want to hear soundtracks from your favorite games then you will have to download them as game DLC. Which means you can not download and play tracks separately. For example if you don’t have Half Life 2 installed, you won’t be able to listen to its soundtracks.

In addition, to celebrate the launch of Steam Music player, Valve has made some soundtracks free if you have their base game installed. Free soundtrack DLC includes tracks from Half Life , Half Life 2, Portal and more. You can check out the full list here.
