How can we improve Discord?

Recording Option for Voice Chat

It would be a great addon to the program to have a preset recording option for voice chat, just like other applications (Teamspeak for example).

Simply, you start the recording with the click of your mouse and at the end it would be coded in a common audio file (.wav or .mp4 for example) and stored in the folder you have selected.

To identify that someone is recording in the chat it could activate a notification by means of written text or an icon in the user who is recording. Of course this option should be add to the configurable permissions. So you could choose which rooms you can record and who can record.

As Podcasters ( we have been waiting for this option to exist in the application so that we can finally move to it for the recording of the programs. Thank you very much!

    :Craig: Bot does the job pretty well!
    (but ofcourse an integrated option would be also nice)

    I responded before to this, but I have a thought on the matter now:

    > In channel settings there is a 'recording enabled' setting.
    > Those channels come with a white dot in their name that turns red when recording is in progress
    > Joining a channel with recording enabled brings up a warning dialog that can be permanently disabled.
    > Channels with a white dot are considered 'passive recording' channels; a means of saying 'This channel may be being streamed/recorded externally'.

    The above would make it clear when recording is being done in-app and avoid ethical problems with such channels if someone joins without being aware it's recorded.

    Adding a feature of this would allow for more security for

    I was already going to put this as an idea, but someone beat me to it. This is an idea I've wanted since I first started using Discord, so hopefully something comes soon!

    I've been RPing on a Discord server via voice chat (my character's a demon and I use a voice changer app to provide the right atmosphere), and I would love to have recordings in the future of these sessions!

    Would it be illegal to record people in Discord? I know there are laws against stuff similar to that.
