    how do you actually get the audio from discord so your viewers can listen in?

    untick the "Disable Sounds" option

    unticking "disable sounds" does not fix this actually

    This should be an opt-in feature. Does no one else find it unsettling that Discord is monitoring other apps in the background?

    @InsaneFirebat It is opt out. You can choose not to have Streamer mode on at all. Additionally, we only compare processes you run to a list of ones we have, so we're not collecting data or usage stats on what you're using.

    I just got Discord and know little about it. What is OBS and Xsplit? I just want to screen share with my friend right now.

    @Gear_Storm OBS and XSplit are streaming platforms that allow you to broadcast your computer streaming website. Discord doesn't have screen sharing just yet, unfortunately.

    Why does Discord automatically put me into my general voice chat channel when streamer mode is enabled? How can I change that to a different channel or even disable it without completely disabling streamer mode?

    Question is: Why did streamer mode enable itself? I logged into Windows (launching Discord on startup) and it says to me that "Streamer mode is enabled".

    @Saiasanc Streamer mode doesn't auto-connect you to a voice channel at all. This may have been Discord doing it normally when you restart; though we just disabled that function.

     

    @Peekofwar: There's a setting that has Streamer mode auto-detect if you're using XSplit / OBS. You can turn it off in the menu settings listed above.

    The thing is: I am streaming but it never shows in that zone where it shows Online, offline do not disturb. Im streaming but that thing never makes purple to show everyone. any fix?

    @ICyclicall What are you streaming on/ The streaming status only works for Twitch streams.

    Is there any way to disable the popups without disabling the orange taskbar icon when you get a new message?  I currently have it just as sound, and I'd like a visual signal but those popups interfere with a lot.

    @JATMAN It sounds like there may be an issue with the audio configuration! I'd double check your setup for Discord and OBS in the System Audio Capture source!

    @Eleanor 🍂 Unfortunately when you disable notifications you disable both the sound and the visual notification, but I can definitely forward that suggestion to the team!
