How can we improve Discord?

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!

    im getting tired of having to use screenshare so people can hear me cuz if i dont turn it on then nobody can hear me

    Tried Discord Canary. Every time we went turn on 'share system sounds', Discord Canary would crash. So much fun.

    It's out on Canary, but you can't talk while screen sharing. You can get around it by using the normal version of Discord to be in a voice server with whoever you're screensharing with, and just muting everyone else in the screensharing call, but it requires everyone to have both normal Discord and Discord Canary

    To add to this, in case the devs may not know this, you can remove the voice of participants in the call from system sound by taking the audio that is playing on the sharing system from discord, inverting it, and layering it onto the system sound that is being shared back. This should effectively noise cancel any participants.

    This addition would be very benhefitial to me so i can finally share my Clone Hero gameplay with the music actually hearable for once

    P.S Even on Canary, my friend cannot hear my volume. So it literally does not work.

    Pretty sure this has been implemented and is slowly rolling out. I remember having a feature saying "Share System Sound" saying it's experimental. It's now gone however..

    If this is implemented I'd like a way to just share audio as well without the screen share. That way if I just wanna play music for me and my friends to listen to while we play a game (Great example is building something in minecraft together to cover any drops in planning and such.) It'd cause less lag then sharing audio and visual or even just visual. would be awesome <3
