Discord, the popular gamer-centric messaging, voice chat and streaming platform, has started working on a native Apple Silicon version of its macOS app.

Discord recently released a new version of Discord Canary — the alpha test build — for macOS. The latest version is a native Apple Silicon application.

To download the latest version of Discord Canary for macOS, you can visit the Discord Testing Client page. Once there, click on the Discord Canary link under the macOS header.

Discord Canary is the Alpha version of the client, which Discord says is “the most unstable version of Discord, with many updates. Bugs usually occur here, so use this client at your own risk.” In testing since its release, AppleInsider saw repeated request for microphone and camera access, but so far no mind-blowing bugs.

Other companies have also released native Apple Silicon apps very recently, after more than a year of hardware availability. Amazon has released a new Prime Video native Mac app, available through the Mac App Store, which allows users to purchase movies and TV shows directly.

NordVPN also updated its macOS app to run natively on Apple’s M1 chipset in an update that went live in August.
