The next Steam Deck Client update for the stable branch arrived yesterday, and if you tend to use Bluetooth devices with your Deck often, you will find a lot to love here. In the new update, we can now see battery information for Bluetooth devices that are connected, as well as toggle which devices are able to wake the Steam Deck up from sleep. Both of these can improve using the devices with the Deck, which I am extremely happy about.

We have a bunch of bug fixes too, like web browsers showing blank page entries when navigating backwards and fixing games with file names containing spaces not exiting when forced to. The magnifier scale can now be configured in the Display Settings, gyro to mouse behavior has been improved in Steam Input when connected over Bluetooth, there's now a one time pairing for Remote Play, and the app activity feed should refresh more reliably.

All in all, this is a welcome update, and you can download and install it in your System Settings on the Steam Deck.
