    its not like Apple Silicon is a weird sideline or temporary thing.  this is the future of the Mac.  or at least, the next decade or two.  and a whole year of it is already gone.  tick tock, discord.

    Just received my new M1 Mac and discord's app is "slower" than on my Intel based Mac.  A wee bit of lag on the keyboard and takes a bit longer for the screen to paint when switching between servers, channels

    Just wanted to add my voice to the existing pile of voices calling on Discord to make this happen.

    It would be greatly appreciated if a chat app would not be a heavier battery drain than Photoshop 💜

    Looking at Activity Monitor, Discord is literally the last "Intel" app I am still using. Discord is a painfully slow, battery-hungry application and their developers should be ashamed.

    I use Discord at work and it is painful to use the Intel version. Let's hope we can have an ARM version on 2021. Please let us know when it reaches canary channel so we can test it :)

    Hey is there a way to stop receiving emails from this thread?

    I made the mistake of leaving a bump comment here and now I receive an email each time someone comments lol

    @Amasc You can sign in to the site with your Discord account then click the "Unfollow" button at the top of the thread.

    Adding my voice here. Come on Discord, make it happen! 
    Even though it might not be a "polished" product, just plain-compiling the electron project to ARM and call it "beta" it's enough for 99% of us :(

    I use discord at work, all the team switched to M1 recently. M1 Performance are absolutely terrible. So adding my voice too. Come on Discord, it's been a year already.

    We will “calm down” when they release it.

    plex "Working on it" a year after the first Apple Silicon hardware was released and a year and a half after Apple Silicon was announced and developer resources were made available is not an acceptable response nor does it commit to a specific timeline. If it has taken this long for them to even work on it, how much longer until we see a release?

    Thank you! I followed this thread to make sure to get the latest infos about potential M1 build, it's a shame they're not interacting with us in this thread.

    where can i find this updated version, tried to install canary build form the discord website and it still says it wont open if I don't install rosetta

    Ritz Ensure you're downloading from https://discord.com/api/download/canary?platform=osx

    That leads to a disk image with a Universal (Silicon) Discord Canary application; it will not require Rosetta.
