Discord has finally released native support for Apple Silicon Macs. At the time of the launch of M1 Mac models in 2020, Apple also introduced Rosetta 2 to run apps that were not optimized for Apple Silicon Macs like Discord. Although the apps on Rosetta 2 run smoothly on Apple Silicon Macs, they still do not offer the same level of performance as the apps with native support.
With native support for Apple Silicon, Discord runs faster than before
After beta testing the native Apple silicon support, an updated version of Discord with native support for Apple Silicon Macs is released to users. On Rosetta 2, the app’s users complained of poor performance and battery life issues. Thus, the company has released it as a Universal app to run natively on Intel-based and Apple Silicon Macs.
Discord is a social messaging app that allows users to stay connected with friends, family, and followers over voice, video, and text. Users can chat, have virtual hangouts, and more on the app with close people and favorite communities.
Discord is where you can make a home for your communities and friends. Where you can stay close and have fun over text, voice, and video chat. Whether you’re part of a school club, a gaming group, a worldwide art community, or just a handful of friends who want to spend time together, Discord makes it easy to talk every day, and hang out more often.
After a year and a half of the M1 Apple Silicon launch, more and more developers are optimizing their apps for Apple Silicon Macs to take complete advantage of the high performance and power efficiency of M1 series chips. Recently, Dropbox was updated with native support for Apple Silicon.
Mac users can download the Discord app from its website. It is also available on the App Store with monthly subscription fees starting from $4.99. Discord is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and requires iOS 11.0 or later and iPadOS 11.0 or later.
