The messaging app for gamers, Discord, is now receiving a new beta update to version 8.9.1 through the Google Play Store. The latest release is indeed snappier, prettier and more feature-packed than ever. Please, have a look at the changelog for this beta first and don't go anywhere because I have a word or two more.
- Font Scaling is back and better than ever! a A (Bigger)A (Biggest)A
- If you turn off animated emoji, the emoji picker won't animate them anymore (for you lower-end phone folks)
- Updating language now is buttery smooth
- You can delete and disable your account from within the app now, but why???
- App should be a little leaner due to a low-carb diet
- Bug fixes on Account screens and some performance improvements
Font scaling & animated emojis
Apparently, Discord has brought back a very handy-dandy setting which allows users to set a custom in-app font size. The option can be found in the 'Text & Images' section inside the settings where is also another new toggle that controls whether emojis should be animated or not.
More account preferences
Instead of having to reside to the desktop app or the web version to disable or delete a profile, the Discord Android app is here to save the day. It lets you tinker with those buttons and to do so you will have to head into the 'My account' page, again in the settings.
Generally speaking, every millisecond spent while waiting matters. Surely enough, waiting times have been cut down a tiny bit and in addition to that, changing the app's language happens in an instant with a smooth transition animation as an eye-candy. The release notes also do mention a size reduction, so more space for your other stuff is there.
Turns out that version 8.9.1 beta is a great feature update. If you haven't already, you can sign up for testing from the links below and get to try out new app experiences in advance. One more thing - follow TestingCatalog's social media accounts for more update insights like this.
