Discord working on native macOS app for M1, already in beta

HometechDiscord working on native macOS app for M1, already in beta

Discord, the popular gamer-focused chat network, is finally working on a macOS upgrade that will include complete support for Macs with the M1 processor and later. Although the update is not yet publicly accessible, it can be installed as a beta app for the time being.

As reported by several users on Reddit, Discord just published a new version of its “Canary” software that operates natively on M1 Macs. “Canary” is essentially a beta version of Discord wherein the business tests new features prior to public release.

When programmes are upgraded to operate natively on the Mac Silicon platform, they improve performance and efficiency, since native ARM apps take full use of the M1, M1 Pro, or M1 Max processor. However, it’s worth remembering that Discord for mac is still an Electron software, which means that speed improvements may be minimal.

Discord, for those who are unaware, is a social media platform in which members may communicate by text, voice, and video. The platform has grown in popularity among gamers and is accessible on iOS, macOS, Windows, Android, and Linux, as well as some gaming consoles like as the Xbox.

Download Discord Beta with M1 support from the platform’s official page. There is no news on when the upgrade will be made universally accessible.
