“Family Sharing” Limited Beta Coming Soon To Steam

“Family Sharing” Limited Beta Coming Soon To Steam

RequestingAccess

It has been revealed today that Steam will soon begin their Family Sharing program, which will be available in limited beta.

Similar to Xbox One’s now-discarded policy, family members and close friends will be able to request access to a game (as long as it doesn’t use a third party account or subscription, e.g. uPlay) from someone else’s account using a shared PC. One account may authorise the feature on up to 10 devices, and only one user can access the shared library at a time. Users can also access the DLC, and their saves will be saved onto the Steam Cloud.

Similar to their trading card beta, you can have a chance at entering the limited beta by joining the Steam group.
