If you’ve used Discord ‘s Android app, you’re probably tired of the speed with which updates come to your device. While iOS and desktop users were enjoying new features, that new feature always appeared as “Android support coming soon”. This update time difference is now reduced.
Discord announced a major update to its Android app’s development framework on August 1. Users will have significant improvements to the app after an automatic update is released weeks after Discord rebuilds the app using React Native development .
This new feature was developed by Meta and is used to power Android and iOS apps like Facebook and Bloomberg. What makes it special is that it allows developers to work across platforms without extra effort, saving time and energy.
Discord’s Android Version Will Now Get Features Simultaneously With iOS
This means that Android users will need to start receiving updates at almost the same speed as iOS and desktop users . The new development process also means Android users should get more frequent updates.
Before the update, Discord teams would have to maintain different codebases for different devices, but the new development process consolidates the work. As teams will have less codebase to maintain , they will be able to address any bug fixes or other updates in a more timely manner .
