Not gonna get into the entire new UI issue but I will say that I already don't like it. The color and font is worse and straining to look at, but many people have already discussed this. My problem is how, at least for my Android, they made it harder to post images. It was already bad enough when they added the nitro giftbox icon next to the images a few months back (honestly still hate that one and continue to accidentally tap on it to this day, had to put a password verification behind purchases out of sheer fear of accidentally buying it while the app lags) but they somehow decided to change something yet again.
Before this new update, if I wanted to post an image on my phone that wasn't very recent, I could access my Gallery app from Discord itself, find the folder, scroll to the image, and post it. It was the best way for me to find images that were from too long ago, but now the feature to access the Gallery app is just... gone? For some reason, they decided to use My Files instead, from what I can tell.
My Files is way more cluttered and difficult to find things, I already have to press multiple things just so it doesn't show exclusively my Downloads folder, but accessing any folders is way harder since it's only the name and nothing else, no sample images to accompany the folder, it's on a very awkward list that's difficult to scroll through and find what you're looking for, since folders aren't even organized on names or your own personal order that you set, (like Gallery does, how convenient!) and it takes way longer to find the image.
That last part was a lie though, but here's where it gets even worse. The folders are organized by which last one was "modified" as in I guess which one last got a new image on it. You can also set how it's ordered by "name" or "size" (guessing that's file size) so problem solved? No. Because there are 3 issues. One, I never had my folders organized like this in any way before, so it's still a problem no matter what, even if I organize it by name. Two, organizing it by name or anything else ruins finding images altogether, because inside the folders, images are named after the file name! I don't know about anyone, but I never ever bother checking what the image I'm downloading has for its filename. It doesn't matter! So I really have to organize it by name back to modified just so I can find a folder, then the image? But the worst part is three, because no matter what, this entire system will always auto back to last modified, forcing me to have to change it to whatever I want every. Single. Time. And I already have to make it leave off my Downloads folder if I got the image off Twitter, for example, but I guess this ruins the entirety of how I've organized images and folders in the past just to try and find them easier.
This is completely backwards. I don't even understand why the Gallery support was removed entirely, but it's a mess to try and find images now. This entire update was a complete and utter mistake, and I am very dissatisfied. I've left feedback before on other infuriating new changes made, got upvoted a lot but was never addressed or fixed, so am I really just supposed to get used to this horrible new system? I don't want to, and I shouldn't have to. This update was my breaking point. Change the color back, change the font back, and put back the Gallery support. I don't want any new stuff to re-adapt to, I literally just wanna talk to friends and laugh at dumb memes.
