    The new size makes small displays look even smaller. Please turn it back.

    Well, yes, I agree with this.
    I think the best case is to be able to manually configure it, but in the case that isn't possible or will not be done, I think too the font size was just fine before and now it looks too big.

    Disgusting, everything is so big, I have been using smaller system font and now it's ruined.
    Thanks

    I have sought out a discord feedback site (this) specifically to voice my complaints about this update. It breaks the flow of a conversation and is incredibly distracting, as well as in my opinion, makes the entire chat look a little less clean and tidy than before. At the very least, please employ a user scale, so we can decide on our own text sizes.

    Like all the other comments are saying, please add a scale or get rid of this update completely. It's very jarring to look at, and I lose focus a lot when trying to read conversations, especially with the big servers I'm in.

    A temporary solution to this problem is to revert to before this update was implemented. It's quite easy to do for an app like this. A simple guide: https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/06/03/go-back-older-version-app-android/
    Once there, you can use the link provided to access a website where you can find earlier version of apps. Search up Discord, then select version 8.2.6 or previous (whenever this update was done) and download it (make sure Discord is not downloaded before doing so). You may have to tamper with security settings for downloading apps but it is perfectly safe (trusted website). After you have installed the older version you just have to login and bravo, you have the normal size we know and love.

    I agree completely; the new font is very distracting even on larger screens, though it should be noted that on screens below 5.5" it becomes more notable.

    Pretty pointless change, it was perfect the way it was. If these new font/display picture sizes are staying, give us options, either on a slider or a simple revert option. Some (if not most) of us were perfectly fine with the old sizes.
    Experimentation is good, but if it isn't broke...

    I too would like to vote for a configurable font size; the new one makes longer messages way more uncomfortable to read and as someone with a screen that isn't huge I preferred the smaller fontsize. Please consider reverting the change or giving us an option, thank you.

    My Android just updated when I had to restart my phone due to keyboard issues and
    The new size for usernames is seriously messing with my vision and hurting my eyes. P l e a s e at least give us the option to toggle back to the previous size.

    I agree completely. Everytime I have to look at these awful monstrous names, I feel offended and disgusted.

    Yes please, change it back or give us the option to scale it. Its really distracting and I cant imagine how annoying it would be in huge servers.

    It's so bad. I can barely stand to look at discord on mobile now because it's so cramped and gross looking.

    Please fix this it doesn't look good at all. I've spent the last half hour trying to figure out how to get rid of ot and realized I can't. Add a scale or anything that will make this feature optional.

    If anyone is on Android and wants to go back to an earlier version until the problem is fixed, I recommend checking out this article: https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/06/03/go-back-older-version-app-android/
    You want to go back to at least 831, potentially earlier. I downloaded version 823 and it was back to the normal size.

    Yes, the current font size was obtained before by changing your phone font size to large, now normal size is large.

    This needs a hotfix this asap. For now i downgraded to 8.1.9 because it's just unbearable.

    Edit: Almost a week and still nothing changed... it can't be that hard to change a simple number determining the font size and recompile the apk.

    Small? The update has made my font massive compared to before. I don't understand why they can't let the system dictate the font size, like every other app.

    It's so distracting, I can't look at anything without it diverting my attention.

    New font size is way too big. Please give us the option to make it smaller in device. Doesn't look like any changes were made on the computer version. Please don't change it

    Augh! At least be consistent with your sizes! If you're upsizing text that's the same size as other text resize the other text!
    But actually this should be configurable! Good grief!

    I like the idea of a configurable control, similar to what we have at Desktop, but I'd rather keep the actual sizes

    This was a completely unnecessary change and just makes everything look more crowded than before.

    Wow this is annoying! At least before it obeyed the system font size, now it just overrides it to a default font so all text on my phone is one smaller font and Discord is bigger. Also now the font size changes every time i open the app. Some sentences will be big and some small on the same page. It looks awful and buggy

    The fact that there is no option to change the size of the avatars and names in the app is the most frustrating thing about this. That and the incredibly tiny margins that completely contradict what the large names is trying to accomplish. All together, a terrible decision that got pushed through before it was vetted enough.

    The bigger font size is good for those users who have a hard time reading the text. However, there are those people, we, who prefer having small front size since we are used to it and it is more convenient for us. I hope there would be a setting where you could change the size of the texts instead. That way, it will be more convenient to both parties. Or atleast enable the app's font size to adjust with the phone's font size.
