  1. Add text chat to the overlay

    Right now, the overlay's only able to access voice chat. I use Discord mainly for text communication - would be great to access that in-game.

  2. Add an Icon to show us when we're talking

    I would love to have an Icon that displays when discord is picking up volume from your mic, Kinda like TeamSpeak has with the blue bubble, I normally have discord minimized so I cannot tell when discord is hearing me and I feel like it could be a great addition.

  3. Allow Overlay outside of games

    Does it what it says on the tin, able to used outside of games, as an always-on-top floating window.

  4. Overlay: Hide Discord icon

    Would be cool if there was a way to remove/hide the icon from the overlay ( http://take.ms/lsjwB ). It takes away important screen space.

  5. Show if muted

    Hi,
    I think it would be nice to see on the overlay if the current user is muted or not.
    Something like a red line diagonally across the image and letting the user displayed while muted.
    As a voice detection kind of user I often forget that I am muted and this would probably help me a lot :D

  6. Mac OS X overlay full support

    I would love to see Overlay working fully on Mac OS X just like windows users have it.
    Pretty straight forward

  7. Overlay visibility (PTB)

    The overlay is nice and compact, and so far works fine for me, but the constant Discord logo + "Shift+`" on the upper left is kinda bad.
    Can we get an auto-hide or a toggle option? Kinda breaks my immersion with something, like Dark Souls, with a clunky logo in corner all the time.

  10. Recording Status (Manually Set)

    One idea that will really add to YouTubers and Streamers is if there is a option to set your status as Recording or Streaming. This way we don't get any notifications from /tts or anything that makes sound that may disrupt the recording.

  11. Chat within the Overlay

    I wish when in the expanded ingame overlay we could switch to the text channel so I can chat while ingame, removing the need to ALT+TAB.

    Thanks :)

  12. overlay mute

    It would be cool if we could see if someone muted or deafened themselves in the overlay. I'd also like to be able to click on certain avatars or users and "hide" them or something similiar. A text chat accessible by making a larger overlay sort of like the steam overlay where we can text. Like the overlay, we should be able to make a keybind to open this.

  13. Minimized Overlay

    Make the overlay so it activates whenever discord window is minimized. it would be good for being on windows and work fine in borderless games. Much like Skype's overlay when you minimize it.

  17. overlay customization

    1. Optional Discord logo on overlay. Right now it's always on my screen and stream - please make it so that it can be either turned off or only comes on when someone is speaking.

    2. Customizable fonts, line spacing, font size, colors. Right now the list of channels in the app and the list of people speaking in channel on the overlay in game take up too much vertical space. There is so much space between each name above and below. I know it's "modern design" but it's just not efficient enough and takes too much screen/game real-estate .…

  19. overlay

    Il ike the new ingame overlay, the only feedback I have is that for example in league of legends when it's there and you click on the discord icon that the server pops up. It's super easy to die because of that.

    Maybe a solution is to have an option in settings to disable the icon of discord in the overlay and that it only shows who is talking/who is in your channel? So the server overlay cant pop up.

    Thanks :)!

  20. "Only Talking" Overlay window for OBS

    A non-hooking overlay window that I can add to OBS as a source and chroma the background would be fantastic. There are many times when I want to show just who's actually speaking in Discord instead of the entire roster in the voice channel. Doing this in a small popout window I can add to OBS would be the best!
