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!
I recently send mail about this idea, didn't know there is already topic about it, first of all thanks for that and yes, that would be really, like REALLY good for us. Just do it please. This needs to happen.
This would be sooooo appreciated!
Yes please. This is what I was hoping would come with discord's screen share in the first place. It's useless without sound imo. Negates the entire point of trying to show a game or movie to a friend or whatever else you're doing. Definitely need this.

So, facecame and screen sharing is out now. Wouldn’t it be good if they add sharing system sounds like for example I want to show my friend something in a game and I need to show it with audio also instead of taking off my headphones and putting my mic right next to the speaker they should add a feature where you can just click a button and it will share the sounds of your computer until you disable it. Ever since I moved from Skype to Discord, system sounds is the 1 thing I’ll need so discord can finally be a replacement to Skype!
This is so freaking true, this is really needed. Thanks for this
Voted, it can be very interresting in a role play session too, to have an ambiance music.
Well, offcourse it should comes with a specific permission on a role to avoid everyone to do it.
@Me.Hell I have them. it is still a hassle. Having a baked in solution to share system audio would be much better. And if you do it that way you cant use discords voice activation feature, and you have to use voicemeeters voice gate, which isn't the best. Also you have to restart discord whenever you change your mic input for it to actually switch.
Just download "voicemeeter" and "Virtual Audio Cables" last one might not be necessary but for some things it could come in handy.
This is extremely useful for tons of purposes. With screensharing, it makes it easier to share in-game audio and share videos with friends.
Without screensharing, it can be used by DMs to add extra ambience or sound effects to their DnD groups, it'll significantly improve a server's karaoke night, or it can be used for tech support.
Yes, trolling is always a threat, but this could be configured to be enabled/disabled on any voice channel, or could be a role-based permission.

Yeah when we select what to screenshare there would be 2 options, one is without sound and one is with sound
Add the ability to hear sound from the persons computer that is screensharing.
Please. Please. Decent screensharing with sound is the only thing i really want from discord
Please and thank you
I have many friends that leave discord to screenshare on skype because of the audio so if you implemented this then it would be great!

This would be pretty sweet c:
Would turn it into a viable coaching platform for competitive games (OW, LoL etc). Support!
Yes really need this! Whenever I show someone a clip I recorded whilst playing a game, it's so much better when I play it with my system sound on.

That would be great to make music together. It would save a lot of time! HYPED
We must have this! It's a lot of effort to work around that atm. Do it! Do it now! :)
please add this :c
As someone that uses Discord to do some live DJing, I see this as a great improvement to what can be added to Discord, as I tend to get feedback if other people are speaking at the same time.
I totally agree with this!
