Native Discord support
Native support for popular voice communications (ie: Discord) while gaming would be great. Cross-play between quest and PC users is troublesome without it.
Current workarounds are klunky

Would love to see Discord in Quest/Q2. I use discord to call friends a lot and just being able to talk and hang out while playing some VR and not have to worry about having airpods in and take my HMD off to interact with my phone.
I know this is unlikely because they’re likely planning on rolling out this kind of support to Facebook but being able to chat and stream on Discord would really be great. It’d also let us share VR with our friends more which would help grow the platform.
One of my favourite VR experiences was a few months ago, using my Quest 1 in Link mode and running Vivrcraft, running around a world I built with my WoW friends during lockdown. I steamed the whole thing on Discord to my buddy and it was really fun. I wish I could do this kind of thing natively via Discord on my Quest.

The discord app should be available. I miss it while playing through SteamVR
Lo ideal seria que Discord se ejecutara en paralelo (igual que otras aplicaciones como YUR que se ejecutan en paralelo), o sino, que amplíen los grupos de audio a por lo menos 16 personas (como en ps4). Es que ahora mismo se hace inviable jugar a juegos de grupos, y es una lástima que tengamos que andar con cascos al móvil con Discord, y escuchando las gafas para el juego, así no se puede. Gracias.

At the very least allow background apps, that way we could run the Android discord app in the background.
Hi, are there any workarounds ? I was looking for it but couldnt find anything useful.
