With the GOG Galaxy Beta, you can install your games in one click and keep them up to date automatically, the beta currently supports this feature in all but a couple of titles available here. You can also perform backups easily by downloading a standalone installer through GOG Galaxy. The beta features a friends list, game time tracking, achievements, and chat. You can now talk to each other, connect with your group of friends, and see what everyone is playing. You can also try out our online multiplayer & matchmaking solution that, in select titles, includes cross-play: platform-independent multiplayer between gamers on GOG.com and Steam. If you download a patch that breaks something or if you just change your mind, the app will soon feature a unique rollback option to restore a previous version of your game.

GOG Version 2.0 coming soon and will be in Beta soon.

Sign up here to try to get into GOG Version 2.0 Beta - https://www.gogalaxy.com/en/

So, besides GOG games that have this stuff built-in, it's built for cross-platform stuff across other platforms.

So it'll also let you manually add Non-GOG Games (or games w/ no client support to any client) and Customize your Library; do stat tracking and Time-tracking; Cloud Save Support; try to unify your Friends list and chat lists across platforms; and other stuff.

Basically, besides being GOG Galaxy - it's also trying to be PlayNite (https://playnite.link/) and GamePlay Time-Tracker (https://www.gameplay-time-tracker.info/en/default.aspx) built into one app.
