Discord adds mobile screensharing, and it’s perfect for casual hangouts with your friends

Discord provides cellular screensharing, and it’s excellent for informal hangouts with your folks

As we speak, Discord is rolling out screensharing to its cellular customers. It’s a sensible transfer; earlier this summer season, the corporate’s cellular app was hitting lifetime highs for downloads each day.

Cellular screensharing means that you could simply share your display screen — and no matter you’re watching — with anybody in a voice channel. Meaning you’ll be able to watch every thing from TikTok to Twitch with any of your folks from anyplace on the earth, in actual time. Whereas chatting.

I noticed a demo of the function lately, and greater than the rest, I discovered the simplicity astonishing. In our pandemic yr, I’ve spent a lot time socializing just about — generally on Discord, generally not — and it’s underscored the significance of informal hangouts; spontaneity is among the many issues the pandemic has taken from on a regular basis life.

Options like this one can return somewhat little bit of that again to social interplay, I believe, as a result of it permits customers to drop out and in at any time when. I can screenshare to a Discord voice channel and any of my associates can simply be part of me in no matter I really feel like doing, be it Amongst Us or simply scrolling by means of my digicam roll.

Something that makes it simpler to be with folks is nice, in my e-book. However given how a lot time I’ve spent with folks in varied Discord servers this yr, a function like this one feels quietly revelatory. I miss hanging out on a buddy’s sofa and speaking about nothing specifically; after this yr, it’s one thing I’ll by no means take with no consideration once more.

This new function is about as shut as know-how can get to replicating that feeling.
