i won't use lot of words, just think of it like this.
just like there's a key that you "push-to-talk" and if that key isn't pressed, the audio doesn't transmit.
so when we set input to "voice activity" (that is when mic is always on), there should be a key that we can push to not transmit the audio.
to put it simply - the opposite of "push-to-talk"
i am not alone at home, and many time my family member will come to talk to me while i am in game and connected to discord as well, with my friends. then i gotta talk to them and all the people in voice channel can hear the conversation since mic is on.
personally i don't like push-to-talk, so it'd be cool to have this feature to save me the embarrassment if my family members say something that i don't want my friends (or sometime strangers) to hear. so i can just keep pushing the "push-not-to-talk" key for few seconds (or minutes).
i also understand that there is a "mic-mute". but that is also cumbersome, since i don't wanna leave the game and alt-tab and open discord from taskbar and then mute the mic, lets admit it, nothing can be as simple as just pressing a key (just like in push-to-talk )
thank you for coming to my TED talk, pls upvote if you think this feature will come in handy.
