    I agree. Gaming on Linux is very important to support now.

    Sadly, Discord doesn't even support streaming a Chrome browser tab an Linux. Neither does it on Windows afaik. Other websites like Jitsi support it.

    It may work in the future, if they decide to update the Electron version Discord is using and update their webapp (I'm not sure about that).

    I agree.
    It's kinda frustrating have to boot to windows whenever I want to share my gameplay or anything else.

    This is one of the biggest reasons I'm still using Windows. God, please fix so I can just move to Arch full-time.

    Gaming on linux is a real thing, I'm using Linux as a daily driver and I love discord. But I hate it when people say things like "linux is crap" "linux is not as good as windows" and then I try to clarify that this might not be the case, but when I want to stream a single monitor or a windows with sound, I can't do that.
    I would really love to see this feature on Linux because it is very powerful and there are so many things you can do with it.

    Leetsch2002, just so you know, Single monitor screen sharing works in discord canary since about one month :)

    Hopefully sound will follow soon

    You can use Soundux as a workaround to share an application's sound.

    These days I'm quite sure gaming on Linux is more common then mac. But Linux still never receive things before mac

    Iso I also feel like this but the Steam Survey doesn't confirm this

    See https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam (click on OS Version)

    Well, Mac has it now and it doesn't support even a fraction of games that linux does. Would be nice to have this feature here as well, especially since Pipewire is a thing and can help with porting the functionality.

    Just upvote this post please. Spamming +1 is counter-productive and makes reading this thread more complex.

    The most unfortunate thing is that there are no alternatives whatsoever! If anyone has one please let me know. I really don't want to install windows even as a dual boot.

    It's 2021 and I found out on this thread that it's even supported on macOS.

    So please, Discord developers & others involved in this >>> please allow your user base to grow.
