SteamVR Home will see players finding their avatars and wearables in a new space, with virtual environments being in high resolution that "support animations, sound, games, and interactivity".

 

If you happen to find a new VR home that you like, you can choose to open it up to the public - or keep it for yourself, and invite friends for some VR hangs. In order to opt into the Steam VR beta, you'll need to :

 

  • Open Steam on your desktop
  • Find SteamVR in your Library under Tools
  • Right click and go to Properties
  • Select the Betas tab and pick SteamVR Beta from the dropdown
