Discord - Chat for Gamers. Read The Review!
If you are a compulsive video gamer, you probably hear about Discord. It is a Voice over Internet Protocol (or simply VoIP) application and, at the same time, digital distribution platform, that was designed especially for gamers. The initial release was 4 years ago — in May 2015. Discord Inc. (originally Hammer and Chisel) is the company that stays behind the Discord development. A lot of users think that it is a free open-source platform, but it isn’t true. Discord is free but not open-source. The application is available on all major platforms: Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS and even in Web browsers on 27 languages. Let’s take a more close look at its features.
The Best Cross-Platform Chat for Video Gamers
Discord is a well-known platform in the gamers community. Today it is used by more than 250 million users around the world. On Google Play alone, the application has more than 50 million unique installs.
Here you can create, send and receive different types of media files including video, images, text, and voice messages. Discord has a secure chat channel where you can play the games, find teammates to form squads. It doesn’t matter which kind of games you like to play — MOBA, RPG, FPS or just like to watch esports events and follow streamers — here you can definitely find like-minded people.
Easily Exchange Different Kinds of Media Files
Discord has pretty simple controls. To start a chat you just need to do several clicks that can take no more than a few seconds. All content that you send via Discord is free of charge — the only requirement is to be connected to the Internet. Also, you can make calls and coordinate play sessions for free and in real-time.
Moreover, the platform allows you to send both private and public messages. So, if you want to create a secret chat only for friends to discuss the latest ideas on how to pass the levels in Fortnite game, you can make a private group of the invite-only clan. And if your purpose is to gather all fans of Dota 2 that use Discord, you can create a public chat, so anyone can join it. To invite friends into the group, you should only copy and paste the invitation link. It takes just a few seconds.
In Discord, you can not only create the chats but also assign the roles to members. As a result, they get mod powers or special permissions. I like this platform because it is full of tools that can help you to coordinate people in the most effective way. Additionally to role assigning, users can create topic-based channels within each server. Moreover, you can sort specific people in the group just in one tap.
