MULTIPLE CHAT TABS

    For this i suggest that it should be possible to "pop out" some windows/features.

     

    Example: If you are in a voice channel then i want the option to pop it out as an extra window. So can see when poeple leave or come. I cant make the window rlly small - i only get it around 20% of my screen. Thats uncomfortable for streamers or people with many open windows. In Streamer Mode i cant hear people coming or going so i intend to see it (and no i dont was to shut down the streamer mode because i think it would be annoying to always hear the discord system sounds.

    So gaian i want to pop out the part i am using atm so its waaaay smaller, less information and all i need.

    Yeah that would be nice, kinda sucks running the Stable and Canary client at once.

    Yes this is something I badly need. I usually am active in two servers at once, so having a split-screen view with two channels would be really helpful. Switching back and forth after each message is kinda annoying.

    A thousand times this, yes. I use Discord on a desktop, and this feature was the only thing keeping me using Skype at all. Now skype has killed that functionality with its HORRENDOUS new update, can Discord PLEASE introduce it? Let me pull chats out of the hub to become their own windows and I'll never use another chat app...

    I would suggest using the browser version, just pin as many tabs as you need.

     

    ...The lack of this feature in the gutted Chromium browser that is the standalone version is a big part of why I prefer the browser version.

    This is a bit of a necro but I think this is probably one of the best ideas that could be added to discord at the moment. A lot of mobile phones already support cross-app multitasking, and it would make sense that a feature akin to that allowing for participation/monitoring of multiple channels at once would be rad and useful. I'm in a DM with one person and chatting in a server at the same time, so to do both without scroll, click, type, scroll, click, type, would be a huge boon to UX

    I really like this idea. I had come up with it myself a moment ago and before I made this post I noticed that the website identified your post as a similar idea! As a result, I will post my (crude) representation of what I think this would look like here. I originally made this for my own post, but this seems to be a much better place for it.

    The way this would function is by simply clicking and dragging a discord server from the left of the window over to the center. I have also considered having the user list on the right just show whichever server you're currently focused on, just because I think it would look better with the Discord UI.

     

    There is one problem I haven't quite figured out how to get around yet as far as UI goes, and that's what should happen if you click a server while you have multiple tabs open on the main screen. Normally, it just switches which chat you're looking at, but if you are looking at multiple chats, which one does it change? Just the one you are currently focused on? I think that sounds like a decent solution, albeit perhaps a little bit clunky.

    This should also be possible to do with direct messages, by the way. Being able to do it with servers is nice and all, but the main reason I would like a feature like this in the first place is because it's difficult for me to moderate a server and chat with my friends at the same time.

     

    Another idea I had thought of was to allow the "split" to happen vertically instead of horizontally. That would work kind of like how windows allows you to drag a window to the edge of your monitor to create a half-screen window, except in our case it's just a chat box within the discord window. This is more of a quality of life improvement to the idea I already listed. Some folks would like it, others wouldn't get any use out of it.

    I'm curious to hear others' thoughts and hopefully get some word from staff about whether this idea is viable or not.

    Would be nice to have the option for split windows, one for the contact list, menus, whatever, and another for any chat you want active at the time. That was a given in the old skype, then they gradually abolished that feature, even if it's far better manageable. I miss it.

    Hi, we definitly need this functionality for PC users?

    Something like Skype in the past 
    -comptact mode
    -Windows mode

    Really annoying to switch with the mouse all the time for private msgn différents servers, channels...
    for now the only way to have a "multi window" option, is to use navigators.

    Quite a shame when you have a pc app...

    Came here to suggest this exact thing. Being able to pop-out chats/servers/DM's/etc would very handy instead of having to go back and forth if your messaging multiple people as I am currently.

    You can do that in a way if you right click a server and open it in the web browser. Then with Windows, put one on one side and an other on the other (or what ever you need 3 Or 4 windows)

    yass having the ability to do what mirc did with channels would be amaze, if integrating this, it would be much wow if channels from different servers can be setup. Maybe "pinned channels"?

    Technically on the pc you can your app of discord open and a browser tab both on different chats- however, it should be implemented so that we don't have to do that. Would be much more convenient.

    Bumping this thread because a tab/pop-out/splitscreen view of chats would be incredibly useful in my workspace.

    Yes, you can do this within your web browser with multiple tabs, but this ends up taking up a lot of system resources and isn't necessary, it is also a mess when trying to split two discord windows on a smaller monitor.

    I am in a lot of servers and it would be nice to be able to keep up with multiple chats at the same time.

    This would be ultra nice to have on discord, especially for moderation. When I'm constantly bouncing back and forth between 2 servers with multiple channels and people DMing me it gets really hectic. something like steam's individual user chat windows being an option would be really nice
