Keep Discord mobile from hogging the audio stream.

    Agreed - i hate having to mute & deafen the VC when making a call as my chat mates will hear everything I say to the caller and I can still hear them. The audio should separate automatically so that when making a separate call in a different app discord auto mute/deafens

     

     

    The first time I realized this I eas ordering dinner by Credit card over the phone and realized they could hear me when they started repeatng the fist 4 digits of my credit card # back.i promptly mutrd but had no clue the mic was active on both calls when no other app behaves this way and discord doesnt warn you of this feature/bug.

    Also, when listening to music via discord with my friends, I almost cant on my phone because it sounds so bad. At least the option.

    I also would like to be able to switch between call mode and media mode, because in call mode the app has a passive incoming audio noise reduction and makes music bots and other things to sound horrible.

    Please please this! I want to just listen to a channel but not through my phone speaker. Should have a listen option that just plays audio through the media channel.

    The only way I can listen it good is opening a game called call me emperor, but, as you can see, I can't watch videos while in game :/ I don't know why it happens

    Bump? Discord doesn't read forums ? Just recently got wireless earphones. When in call, it just makes the sound like montone. Changes to call mode. It helps but my call need to be on speakers which I don't want. I want to hear my media and my call properly through my earphones.

    wireless headphones are your issue. don't use Bluetooth for calls.

    however, call mode is a *partial* solution
    the downside is it makes you extremely quiet
    however everything else is perfectly audible

    This is definitely still a major problem. I play music via Discord for out D&D online game. If I am listening through a computer, it sounds great. However, no matter what setting is done in the app, it sounds terrible. It's as if there are audio balancers treating the music like it's noise. Most becomes hard to hear, randomly gets loud and quiet. Even general talking comes in and out in ways it doesn't on PC. This really needs to be fixed. Just let us use the same full quality as the PC version!!

    Discord please fix this I can't listen to anything other than the call. Not from music bots, and not even outside apps like Spotify or YouTube.

    One thing that works for me is pressing the hang up button on my wireless headphones

    THIS IS NOT A DISCORD ISSUE!!  THIS IS AN ISSUE WITH ANDROID!!!

    Go get into a snapchat call with someone, or something like that.  Happens with any sort of call.  It is an Android issue and seems to have been an issue years now, with no fix.  Almost seems intentional.  It bugs the living hell out of me.

    i just found a way to fixed it accidentally, wtf.
    i just go on setting > apps > discord > permission > turn off the microphone permission, then open the apps.
    if discord ask you for microphone permission, just apply it . then try to adjust your volume, it won't be your "Phone Call Volume" anymore.

    but maybe there are some things that have to be sacrificed, like

    - your voice can't come out
    - if your voice can come out, maybe your friend will hear it like double sound

    - you can't adjust bot or your friend's sound by your phone button, but you can adjust on the apps

    idk this method will works on you or not, but obviously I tried this method, and managed to fix it.

    *bad english, sorry.

    My problem kinda similar. After using voice chat on Discord and then listening music on PowerAmp, Spotify or YouTube EVEN after i forced closed Discord app my IEM sound mono tone.
    The only way to fix it is restart the phone. And this happen after updating the latest version. Back then when i still used older version before Discord Nitro launch, i never had this issue.
