Importing your music into SteamOS and Big Picture Mode is quite easy and only requires the user to tell Steam which directory the music is stored in. Once Steam knows where to look for the tunes, the app will build a music library in steam and users can build out playlist, and even control tracks the same way they track achievements while in-game. At the moment, the new feature is only being rolled out to those who have opted in to test it, however, anyone can join the test group by visiting the Steam Music group in the Steam Community.
