Discord needs a LITE version!

    An idea. "Discord-CLI" for low-end machines and tinkerers on Win/Linux with support for ARM boards and older x86 x64 machines. Could allow for coding a custom GUI that uses Dev approved methods and  maybe aid in reducing the workload on the dev's by allowing the community a limited set of tools to aid in getting Discord to work well for those with anemic hardware.

    Or call it a performance saver or something, because discord is not at all just for gaming

    Same here, I just launch the desktop version whenever I need to get into a call, sadly all my friends keep using it. 
    Pretty sad, used to be an amazing software since it was really light to run and more comfy than teamspeak for example.

    I have a dual core processor, and noticed that in mid 2018 discord started to consume more resources, and I barely hear what the people are talking.
    Discord definitely needs a LITE version.

    i definitely need this, my laptop only have a dual core cpu and discord took almost 30% cpu usage when connected to a voice channel

    The bloat is the main reason I hate Discord. A bunch of chat rooms should never use this much RAM and CPU. It's ridiculous that it even needs a splash screen.

    this would certainly be useful for low end pcs. I've used a low-end pc once and discord was slow af on it. Like it took 2 seconds to load a server

    I agree, my discord lags and takes like 10 minutes to start when a game is running. A lite mode for discord would be great.

    This has already high votes, and this is an amazing suggestion, why isn't still hasn't been added! We need a lite version! 797 upvotes, how many more do you need Discord to add this?

    Discord needs a LITE version or option.

    I am running Discord on a 2016-ish laptop with a Intel Pentium processor, and it consumes all of its processing power.

    Please, Discord staff, my laptop is dying.

     

    P.S. THIS TOPIC HAS SO MANY UPVOTES SO WHY THE DELAY

    Please Discord we NEED THIS! The app used to be lightweight now it's just another memory hog.

    If you go into the Voice & Video section of your settings on Discord and scroll down a bit, it says "Discord uses only the best organic locally-sourced Opus Voice codec." So yes, it does :)

    Discord needs to slim down. 

    It never dumps its cache from whatever it downloaded in the past, and so on one system and on my phone I have Discord take up between 1-2 GB of drive space ... even though everything but the last page on any server or any channel is wasted. 99% of the time I do not scroll up. 

    RAM use is going through the roof. Just got a new laptop, installed a couple meters to keep an eye on ram, cpu, etc ... Discord by default using 802 MB of RAM ?!  
    Seriously: W H Y ?!  

    What the heck is going on that a chat app viewer now approaches 1 GIGABYTE of RAM right off the bat?

    Yes please. I just uninstalled Discord from my computer cause it makes every game I play lag a bit, and make all voices robotic and impossible to understand.

    Compare discord and telegram.
    Tg client uses 10x less Ram and much less Cpu time.

    So yeah, we need discord lite!

     I'd love to get one, it was so great to use when it was new on the market. Was pretty simple and direct, barely used any RAM so I instantly swapped to it from my old Skype. As the time passed it got so many new stuff, of course it is awesome and great and it works fine but for a second plan software isn't worth for me, even though I don't use any of it, dispite it being optional it still made the soft runs slow, I have friends that need to close discord and use in-game voice-chat cuz of FPS problems :/ 
     LITE VERSION, PLEASE!

    Just checked on my laptop ... discord = 599 MB of RAM ?! 

    No chats, no game, no extra app goodies, nada ...

    For the a modern version of MIRC back in the day, where you can click servers, hop into channels, ... and it is one TEXT channel at a time, with maybe one or two pictures in the view port at a time.

    Why is this taking so much RAM?

  • Batlh

    same for me i didn't do anything but discord uses alone 800mb of ram.
    i disabled now the game activity tab and the feed just to get a smoother experience....
    also why discord not use a 64 bit client is still out of my mind -.-*

    If discord wants to rise funds for keeping up the servers we gladly watch the ad for it but if its gonna ruin our gaming and make it lag then... at least make a pro version so we could buy or a lite version so we could play without lags
