Discord is the comprehensive messaging application that provides access to a same-title web service with a wide range of functions. It has a modern interface and supports voice chatting, direct messages, and video conferencing. Also, the software allows you to join or create servers and channels for communities. This feature is in demand among gamers, streamers, artists, designers, programmers, and others who want to create a small virtual instance using instant messaging tools as a base platform.
Discord supports channels that can be alternative to the news feed and text chat at the same time. Channel users can share astounding moments, pictures, and videos. Besides, the application allows everyone to watch media content in a preview mode. You can always disable this function to make content restrictions. Moreover, a channel owner has some privilege to take control over moderation and rules of behavior. For instance, an administrator can easily assign moderators, invite new people, install chatbots, and give rights to users of the channel. Someone can stream or share videos without any restrictions. And others can only discuss it in chat. That’s enough to make your own community. You can make a server with several channels for free. Or you can join other channels using search and invitation URL.
Also, Discord provides functionality for gamers. The app has a variety of gaming options. For example, users can be in touch with others who play League of Legends, Dota 2, Overwatch, and more. You just need to select your favorite game or service.
