Don't make users instantly join channels if they didn't "disconnect" upon turning off their computer. Teamspeak nor skype does this.

    As a convenience we reconnect you to the channel you were last in if Discord launches again within 5 minutes of being quit without first disconnecting from a voice channel.

    This is great when you're traveling somewhere and connecting to multiple different places, or having network issues, it saves a lot of time.

     

    I agree.

    I agree with OP, and quite a number of people do.

    The function doesn't work consistently at all.

    Inconvenience > convenience, btw who would actually mind a manual reconnect, please add option or just remove function.

    "When Discord closes"

    Why would it close while you're using it? I meant that once you close the app, it doesn't disconnect you from voice channels, which is confusing and annoying.

    Why are you trying to leave voice chats by closing Discord?

    @Pospesel I believe it is just easier to assume every app will terminate properly when you shut down.

    I could ask you the same, why are you trying to reconnect me to voice without an option or permission? Why do you think I need your help to automatically reconnect? 

     

    By the way 5 months and no update on this issue from discord. Please add option to turn off auto reconnect. Thanks

     

    Also I keep waking up my PC and see myself added in the same voice chat. I switched away another login position  last night for an hour. Came back this morning to the PC who had disconnected,  found that I was automatically joined. Your timer doesn't work consistently. Please fix everything.

    I just want to mention that, although I personally love this feature when it works as intended, it's potentially disastrous when it fails to work correctly.

    I was in a private call on my desktop, internet cut out for maintenance so I turned off the desktop and switched to laptop to finish the call and went to sleep. The next day when I went back on my desktop the call ended up getting restored.

    And I mean completely restored... All the sudden both of us were back in the call we had finished a day earlier without having pressed anything. Worse yet, his client didn't show that he was in the call at all.

    okay sure it can be a “convenience“ when it works properly and when you’re in the certain situations where you want it to work.

    my internet cut out for a few hours one day so i shut off my computer and then when i was able to log back on, as soon as i opened discord, it automatically joined me in a call when i did not want to join one.

    i am 100% certain there are many instances like this that happened to others. my internet cut out again when i was in a call and now i have to worry about rebooting my pc and everyone in the call hearing the things going on in my house.

    also, if you are really calling it a feature out of convenience, why not just make it an option to turn it on or off? i dont really see a problem with making an option that gives people the freedom of whether they want this so called “convenience” or not.

    This "feature" is quite aggravating on many levels. For one, it goes against the norm. Why? If a user MANUALLY closes a discord, then severe all connections. If the user is disconnected, then sure; quality of life reconnect it for them. Forcing actions upon users is bad. This literally makes me go back to Teamspeak, the behavior there is as expected among all other related platforms. Being different isn't always for the better, don't force assumptions onto us. In the very least, how is this not a toggle option to remove? The annoyance is enough to cause me to find somewhere to make this post. This coming from 11 year web developer, user experience is a thing and very much so should be.
