It's pretty just ridiculous, but not everyone can install Discord on their phone. Some users just being stuck with a Linux phone or being locked with a old android phone or an old iOS iPhone. So there why Web Mobile versions should exist. Has the same way that how YouTube works.
YouTube use both PWA and Native app to perform well. But with the advantage of PWA is due to the lightweight and the portability of the app when the native one is kinda heavy and not flexible and when an device get older, it's become a problem due to obsolete OS where you cannot upgrade your OS. Soo the idea is all about to bring an mobile web version of Discord for misc. mobile devices when the app is not available to install.
I saw some modded clients use the similar technique from ElectronJS that use chromium based. So idk why Discord cannot build his own PWA that could make things more available to Chrome OS, older android and iOS devices? If Discord can build an ElectronJS App based on same technique to PWA, why there no mobile versions with PWA available?
