Add a way to turn off other peoples screens-share only for you



  • Prad

    Another suggestion was to also add an option just to mute it. Adding both of these individually would be great.

  • Haddie

    Yes! I'm temporarily on a limited data plan and i don't wanna order my friends to stop screen sharing. But instead I had to leave the call.

    Just a simple button as Tomzen said is sorely needed .

  • That Sprite

    I am a frequent Mobile Discord User and the amount of data that screensharing uses despite not actually displaying anything is absurd. In 2 minutes it used 26.1mb of my data plan, even though the screenshare didn’t even have any audio.

    This means Discord was still downloading the screenshare despite not actually doing anything with it. Please either remove the screenshare feature from Mobile entirely or give us an option to disable it! I don’t want to have to Server Mute my friends just so I can use Discord on the go.

    Also let us disable screen share so we don't have to watch it if we have slow internet and just want to talk with people who need to see each other screens (it also makes games lag).

  • Ptrain

    I used 1 TB of data in 15 days bc my friends share their screen. That's 800 more GB per month than usual and I have to pay 200 dollars in overage fees. Now I cant use discord until there is a way to turn off others screens. I'm not even sharing my own screen

  • IceNinja™

    Just saw this new screen share popup today 03/27/2019, I would like to disable it totally, and not have my avatar popup every time I switch channels. I have no wish to see anyone`s screen or have them see mine. This feature should have  an on/off option with  in user settings. Also I would like the option also on Server Settings to turn this screen sharing sh** totally off in my discord server. 


  • Amaroq the Kitsune

    Yes, please. This is a must-have feature.

  • lengo
    I think this is a great idea. So you aren't forced to look at someone's screen. :p
  • Archi
    I really like your suggestion. Thank you
  • Awibae

    This is what I was looking for, please make this a feature

  • Evigrof

    Agreed. This has popped up for a bunch of my friends as well as me. Is there really not a way to turn this off? We are all switching off discord for the in game chat until this is fixed. I think most are just upset that we are forced to have this feature. After today's update is when we all have it now.

  • Madpenguin

    SO for now if you want to get rid of this, You need to turn off hardware acceleration and re log in.


    Go to Your settings 

    go to Appearance


    Find section with Hardware acceleration under advanced settings and turn it OFF. 

    It will get rid of that stupid annoying screen share window. Came here cause a friend and myself were annoyed as heck seeing this new window we couldn't get rid of with a simple RIGHT click option or not or somewhere else in settings. 

  • DamnDave

    Please add this as a feature!

  • 249751

    We need this ASAP

  • Kitten Raee

    We don't. Discord's too busy adding more important features, like animated server icons you need to overpay for or trying too hard to be Yet Another Game Launcher Literally Nobody Uses

  • Ori

    Yes! I have a GTX 1060 but an old Core i3, screenshares more than half my framerate

  • Kil

    Couldn't agree more

  • DONUT235

    Please please fix this

  • katagatame_

    This needs to be addressed.  Extremely obnoxious is putting it lightly.

    Although, given the way the settings are in the PiP window, I hope disabling PiP doesn't become a NITRO only feature...

  • IceNinja™

    This should be and option for user and server with a big ON/OFF button. I for one would like the option to totally disable this on my discord server.

  • Cy

    Yes, just like mute button, there's should be another button to toggle "Voice only" for those users need to save bandwidth while still able to chat within the server group.

  • spedlift

    Add me to the list of people that wants this option. My computer and internet speeds can handle it but I don't want to hear my friends game which is linked to user volume, just like voice and it does hit my performance enough to be seriously annoying. This has been a problem for 10 months at least from what I can see, I really wish it'd get addressed.

  • dude55man

    Seriously, I have this friend, who even if you are playing the same game again, they still screen share, then wonder why I'm lagging so bad. Can there please be a way to turn off screenshares?

  • method

    why is this not a feature yet?

  • Ahh... Fresh meat!

    Agreed, this is really needed.

  • aondlo11

    Totally agree

  • Fiorii

    Couldn't agree more... It's frustrating that I can't disable it.

  • 猫耳は命です。

    Delete this feature forever. No one asked for this. It's so obnoxious.

  • 91954962

    Yes, make this optional please, it's not discord anymore, it's just skype (and no one wants skype)

  • Neb

    Actually had this exact issue about 30 minutes ago. Only solution I found was to uninstall Discord completely, then reinstall from their website.
