Canary is Discord’s alpha testing program. Due to Canary being a testing program, it is usually less stable than the normal build, but usually gets features earlier than the PTB or Stable clients. The Canary Build’s purpose is to allow users to help Discord test new features.
Reason for downloading
You might be having current issues with the stable build of Discord. Many times the update that will fix it won’t come out of alpha for awhile. It might work for you but similar people might still experience it on the alpha so they need to keep working on it until it’s officially released.
Try this if
- You experience frequent crashing
- Your streams are suffering performance or crashing
- You want to try the newest features
- Some standard features don’t work in standard Discord
