      Huh? You can buy it from the app. Therefore they don’t care about the 30% fee. They’re doing this just to spite you and make it difficult to cancel.

    Ehh, I’m sure it’s something like if they let you manage your subscription through the play store, Google is entitled to their 30% cut. If you subscribe through desktop, they’d like to keep 100% of the money opposed to 70%. Might be off base, but I’d wager that’s the reason

    Because more obstacles in your way like this give you more opportunity to get discouraged and just leave the subscription active longer.

    Did you actually purchased the subscription on the app, or you just mean that it’s possible to do so?

    If you subscribed somewhere else, the monopolistic owners of the app stores explicitly forbid to manage subscriptions in that case.

    If you subscribed on the app, just cancel in the play store, subscription panel (I never subscribed to any app, I boycott software with subscriptions)

    I could’ve sworn this practice was recently outlawed? If not, it 100% should be. If you can buy a subscription from one location, you should be able to cancel it from the same location. I feel like I remember reading about a case recently regarding notoriously hard-to-cancel gym memberships resulting in a requirement that you could cancel subscriptions whenever and wherever you wanted, but maybe I’m misremembering.

          It’s especially images and videos that load in the actual channel. I too use mega, Dropbox, one drive, Google drive etc but yeah I pay to not have to upload there, and share the link to that. Call me lazy

    Doesn’t even make sence because the app is just chromium. Theres no way it cant render the manage page.

      The thing though is, that the communities I’m in don’t just move.

        Completely understandable problem, same for me where I have managed to move some smaller part of my community to xmpp but most would want to move to matrix.

        With the way things are in my communitty I will prob just selfhost matrix server just to see how it goes.

    That’s the wonderful thing about the free market. You can cancel your subscription to discord nitro at any time and there’s nothing they can do about it. That’s all you have to do. Just cancel it then. You’ll never have to worry about whether or not you can manage anything from the app because you won’t need to. Isn’t it amazing what you could do with your brain and your own money?
