Discord: All The Features Of The Platform Loved By Gamers
Discord is a social network born in 2015 from the idea of Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy, experts and video game enthusiasts who had noticed the communication difficulties faced by gamers who wanted to confront each other during game sessions. Existing platforms, such as Skype, were not performing enough, as they caused slowdowns or disturbances during connections and did not allow players to be able to connect easily and create bonds. The goal, fully achieved, was to create a virtual space where everyone could feel involved, build relationships with close people, help each other and cultivate their passions.
Discord is based on servers and groups in which users meet to discuss a topic. There are spaces dedicated to video games, online lessons, training courses, sports, art, science, technology, music, and many other issues. Users on Discord can communicate with each other in several ways. There are text channels, where you can take part in written chats, and voice channels, where they can speak through voice with or without video. Switching between modes is simple and easy.
Discord has approximately 150 million monthly active users, 19 million weekly busy servers, and 4 billion daily talk time minutes. You can share images with other users and exchange video content on Discord. You can take on roles assigned by the creators of the servers to manage and moderate the community you are part of. You can send emojis, and personalized stickers, take part, with your group, in programs in partnership with the platform, broaden your audience and start fruitful collaborations.
There may be bots on Discord servers that automate part of the activities. They are useful for checking that no one violates the creator’s rules, sending automatic welcome messages, and moderating chats. Discord is a platform that can be used for free on desktop and mobile devices, thanks to the application available for iOS and Android operating systems. To get additional features, enhancements, benefits, and superior quality for calls, video calls, and live, you can subscribe to Discord Nitro or Discord Nitro Classic.
