Discord is a popular voice, video, and text chat app that is currently used by more than a million users around the world in servers or groups. There is a vast majority of Discord servers right now with different niches like community-based servers or private discord servers for limited users. You’ll find there are all sorts of servers out there. For example, often have servers running for their games so like-minded gamers can get together and discuss the game and make new friends too.
Discord Android Update Backlashes
Why has Discord Updated to React Native?
ReactNative is a framework built around a concept that helps in cross-platform app development. That can be deployed on both IOS and android. The issue here is that ReactNative is just… not a very good framework for this. It’s extremely bloated and slow and handles UI calls and the like all itself instead of being able to hand them off to the system. It’s effectively a bloated interpreter and it runs like it.
Now what makes this all even worse is that this “update” has been done so poorly that after updating Discord many people find that their old notification settings are being ignored. That’s because this new version for some reason creates entirely new notification channels instead of using the existing ones from the previous version of android. So if you open your android notification settings now and check discord, there will be duplicated of every single existing notification setting from the old version but all set to the defaults from when you first install the app. This is just really really poor.
