Enable a keybind for turning Camera on/ off in discord



  • kelsoji

    Sounds like a neat feature that could definitely help out when needed. 

  • MEE8

    I would love a feature like this being added (also along with an option to look invisible only to a certain person or group/server).

    A keybind to toggle video camera on or off (like there exists for screensharing) would be super helpful. I also like Meeshamoon's idea of being able to select who can see your video camera (or screenshare) though I suppose that could always be done without a feature by only using it when in a private call with those people :P

    Yeah bump again it seems Discord is also very useful as a video chatting app as well. My camera faces my door at an angle so when randoms come deliver things I need to be able to maintain their confidentiality without compromising my place in the call/room. A shortcut would help me cut off the camera, scoop whatever that is up real quick, and hit it right back on.

    I'm surprised we have screenshare keybind options but not video camera? This seems counter intuitive, easy fix though, Discord devs usually pick up on intuitive stuff really well!

  • carmen 🐘

    Please add this feature !!! 🙏🏽

  • YossiAbyss

    I need this please!

  • SnakeySniper

    This would be really useful actually, especially for keeping privacy in video calls

  • TomGameZ

    This needs to be added

  • banool

    I imagine this is a 10 minute change for a dev, we just need to keep bumping it for them to see this.

  • Wijt

    +1 I was very surprised to see that this doesn't exist. This needs to be added.

  • Unbekanntertyp

    I would really like a feature like that. Was actually just about to write a Thread myself, but saw this one is existing since almost a year now. Please Discord add this feature.

  • GR4V3_

    Add it plz


  • Analogy

    This needs to be a keybind!!!


  • IlyCor3 | Marvin

    Yes please, it's been over a year now.

    Please just implement it, it can't be that hard!

  • MartinAmazing

    I too am frustrated by the lack of this feature.

  • xoxtex

    Discord Please!


  • Testpersoncpedc

    Discord Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease add this feature it would be so helpful!

  • ronanjmc

    this feature would be really handy, I like being able to mute/unmute using my own keybind when I'm using another program but I always have to go back to discord to turn on/off video

  • -Karma-

    The fact that something this simple and easy to code into the app has not yet been implemented blows my mind. Come on Discord management & developers, please put this in your next update. Bump bump...

  • U know what I bet needs to happen for this to become a thing. A person who can post on Discord's Twitter needs to mention this post, I have already done so twice and I have never gotten a reply about it. Someone with a status can post on their Twitter directly instead of messaging them, that's what needs to happen in order for them to read this. It's sad too admit but I bet it'll work (hopefully...)
