Discord to allegedly get 'Voice Messages' & 'Gradient Color Themes', claims tipster

Discord is a messaging service packed with multiple advanced features. It allows you to create entire channels with multiple segments, implement bots, and more.

However, surprisingly, in all these years Discord has not offered support for voice messages, something that seems basic in many other messaging apps.


But it looks like that’s about to change, according to a recent leak. Also, Discord Nitro subscribers could get more customization possibilities with Gradient Color Themes.

Discord could finally support ‘Voice Messages’ after many years

As mentioned, the service has never offered native support for voice messages. Users who want to send voice messages must resort to workarounds such as recording an audio file and then sending it to Discord.

In fact, there are apps dedicated to facilitating the above process. For instance, there is ‘Voice Messages for Discord‘ on both iOS and Android.


However, a new tip from Reddit leaker ‘advaith1‘ (who has leaked some Discord-related features in the past) points to the platform working on supporting native voice messages.

This means that users may no longer have to resort to workarounds or third-party apps for that. They could simply have to press a button and start talking.

The leak includes a teaser of the alleged Discord ‘voice messages playback’ UI:

It is not yet known if the feature will be free or part of the ‘Nitro’ monthly subscription. There will probably be news about it in the next few days or weeks.

Gradient Color Themes for Nitro users could reach the app too

The Discord team could also be working on more UI customization possibilities by adding ‘Gradient Color Themes’, according to the same leaker.

The source explicitly mentions that these themes will be exclusive to the Nitro subscription. Basically, Nitro subscribers could have a pack of color combinations with eye-catching gradient effects to choose from in the future.

There are no specific details yet on the rollout dates for these new features. We will update this story as content develops.
