    I came here to say just this. So yeah, vote this up please.

    Would also be great to be able to resize this pop-out window, and of course it should have a window-bar at the top so we can drag it, but could this bar be skinnier?

    I came here as well just to agree, yes please! This would be very much useful. Especially those who have only one monitor.

    I would really love this feature in my co-streams as it would be so easy to grab the windowsource in OBS :)
    Has there been an reply to our wishes??

    Original post was made 9 months ago. I fear they are prioritizing other irrelevant things such as emoijs or whatnot.
    Screen sharing also needs to be active for servers. 
    In games like Warframe and many others, it would help alot not only teaching the clan/guild noobs stuff but also show builds and see and co-ordinating bossfight positioning of the other team members.

    No idea why this feature that is so essential for a "gaming voip app" has not been given more attention.
    If the ancient (but horribly user unfriendly) skype can do it, Discord should have it long time ago.

    The same goes for mic Audio in Stereo (non game scenarios where musicians like myself would like to be able to jam with my buddies in real time with decent audio quality from our DAWs).
    I dont buy the "bandwidth cost" for that as an argument since Audio uses very little of it.

    Out of Discord, resizable, moveable anywhere, and non-cluttered. All it needs.

    I've been wanting this for so long! When watching multiple friends via screenshare, I could have one on my left and one on my right monitor, instead of having them both side-by-side within Discord...

    As FinnishCoffee said, Discord just needs to do it right.

    I hope they add something like this soon. It shouldn't be too hard to add since they already have something like a pop-out feature (when you cam with someone but then click on a different chat/channel, there's a little pop-out thingy).

    Honestly, simply making it so we can hide the sidebar where we can click on channels/direct messages/etc would be amazing as well. That way we could resize discord itself.

    Thank you for trying to help. Your app however, after I downloaded it, when I am trying to install it, I get error - The system cannot find the file specified.

    It has been out for a while now. The pop-out resizable and dragable stream/screenshare that is...
    It's just called (LIVE) rather then screen sharing and has replaced the older screenshare unfortunately.
    I have yet to find a way to do a plain simple screenshare to server chats. That part only works in private calls now.

    BUT - As for now, Pop-out only works with Windows 10 I think.
    Something about how Win 7 is lacking the correct subroutines or something. I dunno, But I have been using it for a few weeks now.
    It's still in some form of BETA though because the volume slider is not there as it was for screen sharing.
