About a week after Steam announced social changes to make it more like Discord, Discord has announced - launched, even - changes to be more like Steam.

The changes roll out now, apparently, and introduce game launching, news feeds and friend activity so, as on Steam, you can see what your nice mates are up to. Are they playing PUBG like they said they would or are they secretly playing Fortnite instead? It is this year's biggest gaming dilemma, said no one ever.

Discord provided a screenshot of the new Games tab, where you can see featured news items at the top (I'm not sure where they're sourced from), a Quick Launcher bar underneath, and Now Playing and Listening Together areas below. It looks rather nice.

This is for very long screens, long like my face.

Don't forget, Eurogamer has a Discord channel you are more than welcome to join.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
