In November, Discord entered beta testing for its macOS app, a version called Discord Canary, on Apple Silicon. According to Reddit users, the digital messaging app has now left its four-month beta. This means that the Discord Canary app can properly support Macs using the M1 chip or later.
Discord is a communication platform where users can create groups to chat via text, audio, and video. Popular with gamers, users can communicate through private channels on most of their devices, even Xbox.
Many users will be pleased that the app no longer has to rely on Rosetta 2 – this technology translates apps designed for Intel-based Macs to run on Apple Silicon. Currently, all of Apple’s Mac devices run on Apple Silicon except for the Mac Pro. The line of chips includes M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max and the brand new M1 Ultra.
Discord is an Electron-based app and should run smoother with its Canary version. Its cross-platform capabilities work on iOS, Mac, Windows, Android, Linux, etc.
Let us know in the comments how the native app works for you. I’m curious if there are any noticeable improvements to the platform via the Canary build.
