Steam Deck Update Lets You Skip Opening Movie


Valve has released a new Steam Deck Beta update that allows users to skip the device’s opening movie and jump right into games.

Detailed in a blog post on Steam, the update is only available if Steam Deck users have opted into its beta and preview channels, meaning features are still being tested but will be released. probably soon widely available.

For those who do participate, however, pressing the B button during the opening movie will now jump directly to the Steam Deck’s main menu, reducing the vital seconds of startup (or 90 minutes for the user who set Shrek to he plays his opening film, below).

The update also added automatic correction of search results in the store and the library, support for the Games to Play Together function, the possibility of adding custom menu icons and a menu option to display the components in the Steam Deck.

Various quality of life changes were also made, as Valve improved responsiveness to LAN connection changes, removed the “Connecting to Steam…” delay when loading an offline game, and improved support for support third-party PlayStation controllers.

A handful of bugfixes were also made, including an issue where audio played quietly even when the volume was set to high and a crash caused by enabling the performance graph with some languages.

The Steam Deck got off to a slow but steady start when it launched in February, but has since ramped up after Valve pledged to improve its production of the device, and customers can now simply purchase a Steam Deck without having to register on a waiting list. .
