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.
