Valve has pushed yet another update to its stable version which brings many audio related improvements. Some of the GNU/Linux client and Steam OS related improvements include addition of “an auto-detect step for audio outputs when booting SteamOS for the first time. You can change the selected output device using the Audio option under settings,” according to changelog.
Other updates include :
- Under/overscan and brightness settings to the initial SteamOS startup UI
- Added support for selecting your sound input device on SteamOS (for voice chats)
- Fixed device volume not being reset to 100% when changing audio device outputs
- Improved the error messages when Steam is unable to adjust system Audio settings from within Big Picture mode
- Updated the Steam Runtime libraries
Steam OS/Linux users don’t have to do anything to get the update as these will be automatically downloaded and installed.
