    My chromebook isnt working. I converted my surface 4 to a chromebook with cloudready, so maybe it’s different. No need to be so rude.

    Ah ok. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I was mainly speaking to someone else, but I’ll see what I can do with your link.

    The browser version doesn't work for me. Literally tried all I could.

    I happen to have a makeshift Chromebook myself: a Toshiba laptop I used to run Windows on. I'm having problems running Discord on my own system, too; the moment it tries to load, the browser instantly displays the Oh Snap page. My Dell machine runs the web app just fine on Windows, though. No such problems on that.

    This sounds a pretty cool idea, for the moment however, it's possible to use the web app as a workaround

    Second the motion. I use a Chrome tablet on the road for light tasks and would love to be able to use all of Discord's features. The web interface is less than optimal on chrome.

    Everyone says to use the available versions, but there are a couple of issues I find with it:

    • It lacks the right-click functions that are found on the desktop version
    • It runs slower than the desktop version, sometimes to the point of it being too laggy
    • Users are not able to display what game they're playing
    • Android version is not optimized for Chromebooks
    • There are less glitches on the desktop version, such as switching between Online and Idle
    • Permissions from Google Chrome may screw up Discord's microphone
    • New glitches from the updates may occur more frequently than on desktop version
    • The site's lack of Chromebook optimization results in some very slow speeds when trying to use text while in a voice or video call

    So there's really more than the reason to ask for an app. While some of these problems can easily be ignored, some are quite needed. I personally like having the convenience of being able to display what game I'm playing without having to turn on my computer, but my bigger problem is trying to chat through text while in a voice/video call. Chromebook optimization is needed.

    I first read this post when it was new and didnt comment at the time because I had no big issues with the browser version, but for the last month or so, using it in chrome browser is horrible.  It gets laggy to the point that my messages arent sent, and i have to open a new tab. this usually takes about 30min or so, but if i search through emotes or join a voice channel, it happens instantly, can not ever send text when in voice and people cant hear me cause im just lagging. have tried everything i can, but chrome browser is screwed for discord. the discord for chrome app doesnt allow mic, so there is really no way for me to talk clearly on discord on my chromebook :(

    Pushig this Thread

    just purchased a laptop with chrome os cause i was curious but didnt think of the incompabaility with some programs, including Discord. Would love to use it as a normal programm, not in the browser or the "mobile" app that you can install. While using the browser version is the best experience imo it just enables push to talk if the tab is in focus unfortunately and that sucks if you want to talk to your buddies but cant reply quickly because you gotta switch tabs and stuff.. Anybody please recognize this request!

    At this point, using the web client is just annoying and a pointless suggestion. It's too slow, it's still sometimes glitchy, and I can never get it to run smoothly with just TWO TABS OPEN.

    We really need an optimized app for Chrome OS ASAP. The sooner, the better because the web client is gradually becoming less reliable with more updates that come.

    " ... Would love to use it as a normal programm, not in the browser ... "

    So you're saying *not* a web application? Your options are a web app, an Android app -- and if you have a newer, high-end Chromebook (e.g., i5 and 8GB RAM) -- a desktop GNU/Linux application, via Crostini.

    I'm not sure what the status is on audio capture -- I think hardware acceleration works now for some devices? Anyhow, Crostini development seems pretty constant (USB devices, native Files app integration -type stuff keeps getting added). I reckon the Linux app will work swell at some point in the not-too-distant future -- maybe a few tricky things to sort out, what with the fact that you're running GNU/Linux in a container, inside a virtual machine.

    Or do you just want them to put way more effort into a super-modern desktop Progressive Web App -- more performance-optimized, prompts you to "install" the app, and all that?

    The last point you have there is what we're looking for. Something that runs off your Chromebook rather than the web, something that has been optimized for ALL Chromebooks, and something that includes all the features found on the desktop version of Discord.

    That's not possible because of how Chromebooks work.
