I use Discord on a secondary display for a variety of reasons, but the main one is that it makes it easy to see when someone has muted or deafened themselves. This is helpful, because if I'm ever talking to someone and they stop replying to me I can glance over and tell that they're muted, and that they're probably busy doing other things or are talking on the phone or something.
Aesthetics of the new UI aside, as those are subjective, this new UI is objectively worse in this aspect, because the only way I can tell if someone else in the call is muted or deafened is by going into the Discord window and moving my mouse into the call screen.
Even ignoring the usefulness of noticing if other people are muted or deafened, it was really easy to check before if I had myself muted or deafened by a quick glance onto my second screen. Now I have to look down in the bottom left corner and look for a tiny red slash over the headphone icon to see if I'm deafened.
Please, if you aren't going to revert to the old user interface because of all this backlash (which is what I'm hoping for), at least make this new UI as useful as the old one and have those muted / deafened icons appear all the time.
As it stands, regardless of everyone's opinion on the subjective appearance, you've pushed out a user interface update that is objectively less functional and makes the user experience worse.
