Discord reportedly gets custom steam deck hardware as well as a big plug-in upgrade. And you should know that the new Discord plug-in for steam deck has some really highly requested new features that will get to improve audio control on PCs.
Discord Custom Steam Deck Hardware
Elgato is significantly improving its Discord plug-in for its Stream Deck and then releasing custom Discord-branded hardware. The Discord plug-in that is on the Stream Deck now integrates directly with Discord’s new soundboard and it includes notification support for messages, an improved volume control, and many more.
The soundboard integration as you should know works very much like how Voicemod can display a literal soundboard on your Stream Deck. You can even assign sounds to buttons and even search for sounds that you have set up. You will naturally need to be a subscriber to Discord Nitro in order to use the soundboard feature.
You can now make use of a button on a Stream Deck device in selecting the audio inputs or even the outputs on your PC, thus making it very easy to switch between headphones and speakers. Elgato also has added a notifications action that will show just how many messages that are waiting for you on a Stream Deck button.
Stream Deck Features
If it is that you are used to fiddling with the audio volume of your friend just because they are either super loud or their microphone is just straight-up bad, Stream Deck now has excellent user volume control actions. You can just simply tap on a button in a bid to change audio or even turn the dial on a Stream Deck Plus device. There is also a new action to show server stats available on a Stream Deck button, and this is inclusive of a new message count, recently active users, or even online users. Finally, you can also get to toggle between push-to-talk or voice activity modes simply by using a single Stream Deck button, as well.
And while the plug-in is such a great upgrade for Stream Deck and Discord users, Elgato is also reportedly releasing a Discord-branded Stream Deck as well as a Wave:3 microphone that is also branded with the Discord logo and colors too. Both the Wumpus Microphone and Wumpus Stream Deck are all priced at $150 and they are available as a limited edition run.
Does Discord Work Well On Steam Deck
With the information already provided in the content of this post, you should have an answer for that already. The Steam Deck as you already should know goes way beyond just a gaming console, it’s so way more than that. You will just be able to use Discord in the same way that you would on your PC or your laptop and then switch between two applications. This very function in particular will enable you to power through your game and get you to speak to your friends effortlessly and effectively.
