Description: Discord is a cross-platform voice and text chat application originally built for gamers, but which has since become a general use platform for all sorts of communities.
At a basic level, Discord is built to allow you and other members to message each other. Each community is called a “server.” If you’re familiar with Slack, you can think of it as a less formal version of that app.
Servers are filled with text channels (where you can type to talk to other people) and voice channels (where you can voice-chat with others). You can also share videos, images, internet links, music, and more.
Each server usually has multiple channels, each of which is dedicated to a different topic or has different rules.
Discord also be connected to other apps, like YouTube and Spotify, to enhance your experience. And there are both desktop and mobile versions of the platform, so you can use it no matter which device you’re using — even while you’re gaming.
