How To Fix Discord Voice "Awaiting Endpoint" Connection Issue

Currently, the best course of action is to wait for Discord to resolve the issue. The problem is server-side, meaning there is nothing wrong with your computer or network settings. Discord’s team is aware of the issue and is actively working to fix it by rolling back the recent update and scaling up server capacity.

You can keep an eye on Discord’s official status page or their X feed for real-time updates. This will be your best source of information for the latest developments. Importantly, users should avoid repeated connection attempts. Continuously trying to connect to voice channels during this time may lead to further complications.

While it can be frustrating to encounter such disruptions, please rest assured that Discord is doing everything possible to restore normal service. In the meantime, you might want to consider an alternative program—chuck your friends into a Google Meet, Skype, or TeamSpeak call (LOL).
