The future has arrived.  PokerStars has just released PokerStars 7 in public Beta mode to .com, .eu, and .es players, providing many new features that recreational and professional players should enjoy.  The other PokerStars domains should see their rollouts in the very near future.
We got a sneak peek at the new PokerStars client in a teleconference with PokerStars Head of Communications Lee Jones and Senior Manager of the Product Team Stefan Markov.
While the software is still in public Beta, the default is still the older PokerStars you have grown to love.  However, with just a click of a button, you can be brought to PokerStars 7 and will be instantly greeted by none other than PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu.
The new client is more intuitively laid out, with all of the poker play menu options along the top and the application-based features and settings in widgets to the right.  New players or players who just want to get into the game quickly should enjoy the easy-to-use Quick Seat function.
More experienced PokerStars players will most likely prefer the main lobby view, which in itself has a couple of different views.
Recreational players should also love that they can change their player icon as often as possible.  Lee Jones commented, "If you are not seated, there is no restriction on how often the icon can change."
Here is a look at some of the features more experienced players should enjoy about PokerStars 7.
Favorites – This is a new feature that allows players to tag any cash game, sit and go, and tournament they want to see in a separate tab.  This will make it easier to find the games that a PokerStars player typically plays.

Apps – All of the non-poker playing functions that used to be in the "Options" and "Requests" menus in the older client are now in apps.

Live Events – There is now a menu for live events, complete with a map showing where the upcoming events are.  The map also displays which live events PokerStars has satellites for.

Chip Graph – Tournament players can now see any player's progress throughout a tournament in a Chip Graph.  The graph not only shows how a particular player's stack evolved throughout a tournament, but also compares it to the average and chip leader's stacks at any given time.

The older version of PokerStars will still be available for a limited time even after PokerStars 7 is out of public Beta.  But why wait when the future is already here?  Try out PokerStars 7 for yourself today.
