  • Picture 1: Click on Steam, then Settings
  • Picture 2: Click on Account, and then “Change” in the Beta participation section
  • Picture 3: Click on the Beta participation and opt into the Steam Beta Update

It seems that something with the new Steam Client update messed about with the VRChat and we have reports from the community that this fixed the issue for them.

Alternatively, try the following steps if these fail:

  • Use a temp account for VRChat (VRChat or Oculus account)
  • Log out from Steam and then Log back in
  • Reinstall VRChat
  • Reinstall Steam (you won’t lose your installed games, you’ll just need to show Steam where the installation folder is and it will find everything)
  • Wait until Valve fixes this (Thanks Gaben)
