Is there a reason Steam's "recently played with" feature does not work? I have been playing online games and it is still blank.

I have over 116 hours on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds since I got it this past month, but none of the people I've met and played with on it show up in the "Recently Played With" section, and I have no clue why. It just stays blank like in the picture. I've read online that Valve may have broke something, but I'd like to be sure it is not on my end.

If I go to the main Steam display, click View and then Players, I only have people I played with on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 68 days ago.

  • @KingsleyZhong Not much else to say. I play online with people and the recently played with still looks like the picture above. Jul 11, 2017 at 2:41
  • You might want to take a look at other posts of errors around the site. Most of them add version, sometimes logs, what happened before this, and sudden changes and differences. There are many factors that can be considered. I am currently thinking of 8 different possibilities for what could have happened. BTW, you might want to add the tag "Technical-issues" Jul 11, 2017 at 2:44
  • @KingsleyZhong I added an example but I will also add what you suggested. Thanks. Jul 11, 2017 at 2:50
  • AFAIK, it's only showing recent friends you're playing with

This is a Steam API feature that developers of may or may not implement in the multiplayer games that they publish on Steam.

In other words, the game must "reveal" to Steam the information that certain players have played together in a multiplayer game. Steam does not determine that on its own.

PUBG does not implement this feature, while CSGO does.
