  1. Microphone Mute Reminder

    We've all had that moment where we've been telling jokes, really good ones, too - but after a couple of dozens of minutes, you realise you've been sitting at a one way window talking to yourself - because you hit that dreadful mute button.

    I propose, to you.. *drumroll please*

    Mute Reminders. What are mute reminders, well, to be honest, I'm not quite sure - but here's how it COULD work.

    It could either remind the user if they've been in a channel for 15 minutes (as an example) but have had their microphone muted for that length, Discord can…

  2. Make attenuation fade in and out instead of being instant

    I like that feature, but I keep annoyed when music etc just cuts instead of fading

  4. Auto-mute microphone when the user is idle

    sometimes the user forget his mic open and this may exposing the privacy of the user, so we need an option to let user determine after how much time the discord will auto mute his mic.

  7. Add attenuation on Linux

    The Discord app on Windows (and maybe OSX?) has an option to lower the volume of other applications while users are talking. I'm requesting the feature be added to the Linux client.

    Attenuation should be added for when others speak as well as yourself.

    This is possible via PulseAudio and Mumble already supports this feature on Linux.

  8. Allow deafen to be toggle without muting the user

    Allow users to deafen themselves and not mute as well.

    One scenario this is handy for is when streamers use a discord channel for viewers to get immediate audio, and allowing the others in the channel to converse without interupting the streamer.

  9. ALSA instead of PulseAudio on the Linux client

    As PulseAudio fucked me over multiple times I decided to get rid of it. Sadly Discord uses Pulse for voice. I don't think it would be hard to switch to ALSA for the linux client, so if it is possible please consider doing so.

  10. Share System Audio w/o Screen Share

    Reduction: Allow the use of sharing system audio without needing to screen share.

    Rationale: This can let users share audio without needing to give up feed of their webcam, or can be used in audio calls without using up too much bandwidth. This can let people share background music or sample audio while still able to access other Discord functions. Can be a toggle or setting under the Voice & Video menu to include system audio with mic audio.

  11. Add The Ability To Mute Screenshare Audio, But Not The Person Sharing Screens.

    Please add this, or an adjustment to lower the volume. Sometimes in a group call my friends share screens and I'd rather not watch / hear it and still talk to them.

  12. Discord VC mini-window status

    https://puu.sh/B8W29/16c811dda9.png
    This is a concept I made for a Voice mini-window preview/control thing. It allows you to disconnect from the call, mute/deafen, see who's in the call/voice chat/channel and time elapsed for non-public calls. I would love to see something like this implemented and I think that people with one monitor would find it especially handy.

  13. Audio test service

    There should be built in bot that you can call and test your microphone with. Similar to Skype, but I'm sure that you could put your own spin on it. Make it so it will record your voice and play it back to you. This would make it easier because you won't have to bug your friend to have them help you test your microphone. Thank you for reading.

  14. Fully lower audio

    We should have the volume (Overall) decrease when talking to someone on Discord. We already have it for if we or the person talks, but what about in general?

  15. Volume control defaults for videos sent on servers

    So everyone knows the problem where you click a video and get deafened by it because discord doesn't set a default volume.

    So I'm proposing we can set a default or it just remembers what we set the previous ones to as it's actually quite scary if someone sends a loud video and it plays at 100%

  16. Type in percentage of audio instead of sliding the bar.

    Instead of having to slide that annoying bar all the time to adjust someones audio level you can have a bar where you type in the percentage you want someones audio to be at! It can be super annoying to slide that bar.

  17. show the mute sign when a hardware mute is detected

    when nothing is detected through a mic (ie muted in a way outside of discord) show the mute sign or a slightly different one the same way it shows up if you mute through discord.

  18. priority

    Priority speaker for voice activity would be ideal for streamers in multiplayer games when they want to say something and just shut everyone up, without having to hit buttons for push to talk. Please also add the option to actually *mute* non-priority people rather than just turn down their volume.

  19. Give users client side options to change audio quality

    Those of us with slower internet really have to micromanage our connections, and thus any loose end really hurts.

    Such users would benefit greatly from client side options for audio quality, so that our connection could more easily handle discord.

    -On a side-note if this gets noticed, same goes for video quality.

  20. Lower my microphone volume when I start to rise my voice

    I don't see how to do it from the technical point of view, to keep low latency voice chat, but it would be nice to have a feature, that will allow me to automatically lower my microphone output volume when I'm raging or screaming (I know, I'm annoying when I do so, but I've tried and just can't keep myself calm when I'm a volleyball ball instead of a heavy tank with a massive armor and shield, if you know what I mean). I don't know, maybe to pass the voice through a 1-2 seconds buffer and analyze it, and…
