    Could be very useful to explain boss strategies in gaming

    And why not a live integration into an embed of a site offering the functionality?

    Its a cool idea.... but not for Discord. If you want to draw something and send it on the chat just simply use paint. Also it would be a mess on big servers, people would draw/write explicit and harmful things. I don't see why they would implement that, honestly.

    really need this please,

    using discord since 2016 or 2017 and still none of these drawing function :(


    plus simple picture editor when uploading images would be great!

    I first experienced a drawing/white board with Windows Live Messenger. In my opinion the dev team for that app handled the integration well overall! However, that was a program orienting on 1-to-1 conversation. For big servers you're looking at a permissions nightmare for any substantially-sized server if people decide to abuse the feature.

    What someone else said is also true: it's nearly as convenient to open a basic/free paint program and draw there. Usually control+A on Windows will select the full image on the canvas, control+c to copy it, and control+V to throw it in Discord. I use the Windows snipping tool all the time in a similar way - copy image, post to discord without ever saving the image (they're usually disposable snips/drawings). 

    So, honestly there are other ways to achieve this and it would save the dev team some work. Much as I'd appreciate a drawing board of some kind, I would much rather Discord focus on other considerations and improvements. I love seeing all these ideas that could indeed enrich the user experience for many of us, but we must take care not to turn Discord into a giant catch-all app full of feature creep. When that happens, quality of any given feature tends to lower and get diluted.

    I think its a great idea!

    I was think of using Microsoft Whiteboard for my D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) games with my party.
    But the problem is, they wont be able to move their piece (token) and the grid is too small. i can make the piece's (token) smaller but there is a limit to how small you can make it

    I was going to make a whole additional post, but I’ll just add to this thread:
    Integrating “presentations” with hyperlinkable imagery, the way Google Slides allows teachers to create a “virtual classroom” that students can click around for different materials. It would be slightly more visually engaging than a simple Text message with included links. Think classic YouTube with those link overlay boxes for “Next video” or “Check this out”

    We are debating moving our teams to discord from slack. A whiteboard integration for software engineering teams would be the nail in the slacks coffin.

  • Nrgazl

    Y E S !
    Or, even better: a whiteboard/drawing layer on top of video, screenshare or whatever.

  • TerrbearSF

    I think this would also work great being added to the current video streaming feature.

    • Turn on video streaming into your voice chat room.
    • Switch your camera feed to “Whiteboard”
    • Then draw out your plan or strategy on screen Madden style. Optionally allow an image background for your whiteboard (like a battle arena from an MMO fight) to draw on top of to describe positioning and strategy.

    Even better, if I can hop on a tablet like my iPad Pro, I can enable this option and use my pencil on my tablet to draw out on a whiteboard stream.

  • TheDevBird

    Please add this.
    Just like video channels, this should have special perms such as "can draw".

  • kopiko

    Add it!

  • Ejay.

    This would be amazing!

  • Link

    I heavily support this concept. I came here just to make a post about this myself, but I see there have been many others. A real-time shared drawing space would be an absolutely amazing tool.

  • table

    would be cool, makes teaching math 10x easier LOL

  • felix

    mix this with the theme recuest and other stuff and change it in plugins

    so if you install a plugin it can change your theme and add cool features like this

  • Aeryx

    It would be a great feature!

  • Remix

    That would be interesting & useful, I'm for it
