  1. Share System Sound

    So with screen sharing and video calls just hitting discord, what better way to accompany them than by also adding an option to share your system sound like skype can!

    In skype you can share your system sound with your friend without it looping their voice back through, which is super useful for applications such as watching someone play a game, or showing music projects etc!

    Also if the system sound is Stereo that would be a step up on skype!

  2. Enable pop-out video chat, and allow dragging the box anywhere.

    Currently, the video chat function is limited only to when you have discord focused, a 'pop out' button would be a really good idea.

    As well, currently you can only drag the window (While in a chat other than who you're calling) to either the top or bottom right, it'd be nice if you could fix it anywhere on the screen.

  3. Screen Sharing on servers

    It shouldn't be necessary all the trouble of going into a new call with tons of people (who you might not even know) just so you can share some moment.

    Allowing and option to share screen where others could press a Screen Button to watch it would be perfect.

    Or any other functional approach;

    It's all about the experience and this inconvenience is a turn off some of the times.

    I hope one day we can open card packs on servers.

  5. Use phone as webcam

    Hey everyone! Im sure everyone has one or multiple smartphones, but not everyone has a webcam. I thought it would be really cool if you could use your smartphone camera as a webcam, while using audio input from your pc (headset).

    Maybe it could be implemented in the app (or a seperate, lightweight app) that you could stream video and use your pc as audio.

    What do you think?

  6. Movie sharing on Rabb.it

    This would be an integration for servers so we can have movie nights with our friends/subscribers/sponsors/etc. similarly to Spotify Integration. It would be awesome to invite people to movie parties powered by Rabb.it with better voice chat to movie volumes, so that voice chat doesn’t overpower the sound emitting from the movie as it normally does for my community.

  7. Native screen resolution sharing when talking to a Nitro member

    Dear Discord Team,

    I am a Nitro member and me and my friends are using the screen sharing option very frequently. It's okay when I share my screen the others are seeing it clearly but when they are sharing it, all I can see is low res because they are not Nitro members.

    I want to see their screen clearly as well, so could you add such feature if a non-nitro shares screen with a nitro member, please let them use the native resolution as it just ruins the whole experience for me.

    When they share their screens we always…

  8. Keybinds for Video Calls

    How about some Keybinds for:
    - Turn camera on/off
    - Turn screenshare on/off
    - Switch from camera to screenshare
    - Instant share screen 1 (or 2,3,..)

  9. Screen Sharing on Mobile

    So, the recent addition of video calls is a great one if you ask me. I use it all the time. But here's one thing that I think could be improved.
    At the moment, the "screenshare" option is only present on PC. I think it would be a great idea to allow mobile users to share their screen as well.

    If there is some way to implement this, I think it would be a great addition to this awesome app.
    Thank you for reading my request!

  10. Cams in a video call should be like Skype

    One of my Discord friends was one of the lucky few who can now use video calls. Up to now everything works just fine but cams should work like they do in Skype.
    Now you're just able to have one cam large and the other ones are tiny at the bottom or Discord is constantly switching between the cams which is irritating.
    So my suggestion is that you can set the cams by you're own like in Skype. Adjust the size of more than just one cam and have users without cams small.

    Greetings from germany and I hope that…

  11. Screenshare should not force a pseudo refresh rate

    I have a 144hz monitor, so I am acutely aware of exactly how Discord enforces the framerate of the video sent. Instead of simply just recording at the specified framerate (which can't be set outside of the presets by the way), it forces my display to pretend to update at the desired framerate and record that. The weirdest part is that my system mouse cursor flickers out of existence during the monitor refreshes that aren't recorded. This whole thing results in me being unable to screenshare difficult games that run at higher than 30FPS unless I want to be unable…

  12. Screen Sharing Suggestions

    1) Screen sharing from inside the channels would be more ideal rather than leaving the individual channels to make a video call with added friends.

    2) Creating breadcrumbs in said channel(s) for other users to know that a screensharing session is happening and an option for them to join even if they aren't "friends" would be nice.

    3) Add pop out windows for a chosen screen to watch

    4) Screen share on mobile devices with an easier UI

    5) Bigger screen sharing groups for up to 20+ users

    6) Multiple users are capable to type and draw on one screen…

  13. Direct Message User Limit Increase

    I would like to see the number of people allowed in a direct message groups increase. Keep the same cap on number of users in a video call (10), but increase the number of users allowed in the text chat to 15.

  14. VIDEO in a SEPARATE WINDOW so we can actually SEE chat at the same time when fullscreen

    Make video able to be popped out as a separate window when screen sharing or video chatting. This was one thing SKYPE has over discord. You can't even see the chat while video is fullscreen.

  15. Bigger video call view with text-chat still visible

    When we're in a video call, standard view (the half-half split) makes the video a little too small to see comfortably. Full view has a good video size, but then I can't see the DM chat.

    Perhaps while in call other elements (friend list, channel list, callers' avatars) can be minimized or simply the ratio between video view and DM chat be adjustable, so we can see both a big enough video and text chat as well.

  16. Public Call w/ Video Streaming

    Let people start calls that can stay live and people can come and go at will. This way, when I want to stream myself drawing to my friends, they can come and go without me managing it.

  17. Resizable screenshare/webcam window

    When I'm using your new screenshare function or your webcam function (on desktop), I have the option to either have the video at a very small size at the top right (too small to read text in screenshare), OR fullscreen it, which makes the text chat disappear.

    I fully expected to be able to drag the border between the text chat and the video to adjust its size. I REALLY encourage an addition of this feature. Thank you.

    (I need the text chat but I also need the screenshare view to be big enough to read the text within it.)

  18. Make Screenshare/Video Calls togglable

    While it is possible to Mute a user that uses Screenshare/Video Call, you have no option to hide their call.

    I've heard complaints from many about them experiencing Lag in game while the calls they were in had Screenshare activated. At the moment you'd have to stop streaming completely so no one experiences connection problems. With a toggle feature however you'd be able to simply block the stream on your end, while others can still view the Screenshare/Video Call.

  19. Make an invite to screenshare option in servers

    Make it where you can invite people in a server to join a screenshare like how it is for spotify or certain games.

  20. Mirror Camera

    If you start a Camera sharing in Discord, Discord automatically mirrors the Camera horizontally. Pls add a Feature that allows you to Mirror the Camera back.
