Delete this feature from Android discords.
There is a very weird and dumb option that I didn't know about in discord. This loving option was "use speakers" on the voice user settings. This option I didn't know about, because why would there be an option like that? What point does it serve? If the user didn't want headphones on, obviously they take it off. If someone can come up with a brilliant idea of using this feature for Android discords. Tell me one please, because I spent another $600 USD for another phone to realize that it's not the headphone jack inside the other phone I had that was broken, but it was discord's feature. It was checked for some reason and I had no clue about it. I asked many people if they knew about this feature, most of them did not. So, discord can lead people to believing their headphone jack is broken. Please do something about this feature, it is useless and can lead people like me into buying another phone when the previous is completely fine. Thank you.
The use speakers option is there for people who might want to have a call that feels like a traditional call. Like if you want to act like you can't talk to someone next to you, or can't find some ear buds at the moment. It acts like a normal phone call when it's off, then the sound goes through the speaker when it's on.2
You could have just used literally any other app (e.g. a music player, a mobile game, a YouTube video) to check if the headphone jack is really broken. You would have immediately noticed that it’s just Discord and that you don’t need to spend $600 on a new phone.2
