No more frantic alt-tabbing.

Sick of having to fire up a secondary music player to play your tunes while gaming? Well so are some of the engineers at Valve apparently, because Steam is soon to deploy an inbuilt music player that you can activate through the Steam in-game overlay.
Currently the planned beta for the feature will only support .mp3 files, although this is set to expand in the future. Users will be able to create playlists, sort by directory, artist, album or track, and play/pause/switch it all around without leaving the game.
If you’re interested in being invited to the beta as soon as possible, you want to hit up and join this here Steam group to try and score access.
Check out more details and an explanation of how it works here.
