The closed beta for GOG Galaxy 2.0 has finally begun. With it comes the much-touted integration functionality, allowing users to launch games without having to go through separate launchers. The current list of launchers available to integrate are Xbox Live, Battle.net, the Epic Games Store, Origin, Playstation Network, Steam, and Uplay. However, the only "official" integration is with Xbox Live. The addition of more Official Integrations should be coming sooner than later, with Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney expressing interest in integration earlier this month, also confirming that Epic Games was currently in talks with GOG regarding launcher integration.

Integrating accounts is a painless process. Opening Galaxy 2.0's settings menu will immediately bring you to the integrations tab.

The features available to each of the launcher integrations varies. GOG separates the feature list between Games (Library, Installing & Launching, Achievements, and Game Time), and Friends (Friends List, Chat, and Friend recommendations).

One of the most popular launchers on PC, Steam, has a majority of these features active.

Curiously, while Xbox Live is considered to be an "Official Integration", there are still restrictions in place similar to the "Community Integrations".

Really sad I didn't get into the first round. Can you customize cover art yet? Anyone know the exact dimensions in use? How about background images?

@Jinx It looks like the Grid view will show all portrait tiles.

Under the Games view if you right click an item and click Edit, you get this menu:

This is a general game view:

There's also a List view:

      New GOG.com policy now allows users extended refund rights to their games, check out this new FAQ with all the details. Some excerpts:
      It looks as if this process is not fully automated and requires individual contact with GOG.com customer support.
      Interestingly there is no specified 'time limit' to how long a game can be played for before it can be refunded (unlike Steam which has an automated 2 hour gameplay limit before the refund requires support to intervene). Hopefully people won't abuse the generosity of GOG.com's policies.
