If you have opted into the Beta versions of EA’s Origin download and storefront then you may notice some new features. The new client which is available now to those opted into the Beta can control their download speed via the Application Settings section. Electronic Arts have also added an FPS counter which can be put in any corner of your games or disabled altogether via Application Settings > Origin in-game > During Gameplay. You will, of course, need to enable Origin In-Game as well if you have previously disabled it.
The new Origin also allows you to send and receive cross-game party invites.
To get the new features, enable the Origin Beta via Origin > Application Settings > Participate in Origin client betas. Remember, if you plan on using the social features then you’ll need your friends to also opt into the Beta Origin client or wait for the features to be made available to everyone.
