Discord is a tool designed for online communications between users within the same community. Despite its beginnings as a chat app for gamers, it quickly grew to become a space for any online user to create a shared communications channel — and it’s an awesome hub for all kinds of online communities.
The real appeal behind Discord is that it’s extremely easy to use. There’s no need to configure absolutely anything. Just search for the group you want to join —either via its integrated search bar, or via a specific link-share URL. From there, log on to any of the themed channels. Each community and channel has its own rules and the level of customization provided is generous enough to allow you to configure whatever you might need to set your space as needed.
Each of the basic functions within this tool is free. You can also access other groups, or create your own Discord channel without spending so much as a single cent. Create your own chat rooms or places to talk in real-time as you play any game. Or use it as an online message board to exchange ideas, images or documents about any topic.
Discord has quickly grown to become a must-have within numerous online communities —not just gaming. It also hosts dev groups, support groups and much more. Overall, what this platform really provides is a simple, easy, efficient, and reliable VoIP connection that users have been flocking to in recent times.
