For those of you who don't know how to add friends to Steam yet, we've put together a guide covering everything you need to know.

Why add friends to Steam.

Adding friends gives you the ability to quickly replay another person without having to wait for random matches at some point, plus it will allow you to invite people you already know to your online games and join friends in games with multiplayer, giveaway games, and make text and voice calls on your computer or phone, as long as you know how to add friends.

How to add friends to Steam.

The best way to add someone you already know is to send them a message with a "Friend Code" generated by the platform.

For this the first thing you have to do is access the platform and select the "Friends" section in the toolbar or in the menu bar at the top of the screen if you are a Mac user and open where it says "Add a friend".

You can send a Friend Code to a friend the way you want, copy and paste the code in the text field and when the small pop-up window appears with your friend's username, press "Send invitation".

After they accept your invitation they will appear in your friends list and on the "Add a friend" page you will access a code to send and a text field to place the received codes.

You can also make use of a link that can be sent to anyone and that when opened, is added to your friends list, the link will be valid for 0 days and can only be used once and you can send it to anyone.

In some games you can access someone's profile and send the friend request, while in others you can search for their username to try to find the account with the same profile image you see in the game and add it.

 This way we come to the end of our guide on how to add friends to Steam, which we hope has been very useful and you can get the most out of it by sharing with new friends in these times of pandemic.
