  • You can now upgrade a Steam account into a VRChat account, or merge a Steam account into a pre-existing VRChat account! You can find the button to Upgrade Account in your Settings menu, in the bottom right. You will only see this button if you are logged into a Steam account. Follow the steps as you're prompted
    • If you already have a VRChat account, you will be prompted to "merge" your Steam account into your VRChat account
    • If you do not already have a VRChat account, you will be prompted to make a new VRChat account, and then merge your Steam account into the new VRChat account
    • The merge process can take up to an hour, so keep that in mind
