Discord recently introduced a new tablet/split pane UI for Android, which feels a lot like Discord does on desktop. I am a huge fan and really like this direction for the app. However, it seems as if this update broke the app's ability to resize depending on the width of the screen.
Currently, the split pane UI can only be activated on my Z Fold 4 by opening the app in landscape. If I then rotate to portrait, it is as if the app keeps the landscape width and the right side of the app is cut off by the edge of the screen, making it impossible to hit the send button or see the user pane. This is also the case switching from the main display to the cover display or when doing split screen multitasking. Prior to this UI update, the app was able to resize to any width.
What I would like to see is the width bug squashed so Discord will resize to the width of the screen. I would also like to see the split pane UI work in portrait mode on the Fold's main screen as it is definitely wide enough. On the cover display or in split screen multitasking, it should use the phone style UI as it is more compact and easier to navigate for that width of screen.
