What is Discord
If you don’t know what Discord is, its been going for 2 years now. Discord is a platform or app similar to Teamspeak or Skype which is free (at the moment) And you can get it on Windows, Mac, Android, ios and Linus. Discord already had 45 million players or users. Discord seems to mostly used by eSports players and gamers because its free and VoIP but this is going to make Discord more popular across the board. It’s going to be great for businesses to get onto this now. Like Slack or Telegram maybe, you can have your own rooms with sub-rooms, you can make just text chat rooms or voice chat rooms and now you can video chat with groups!

The video chat can support up to 10 people in a group Dm. You can now also share your screen or any window instead of your face. Or you can use picture in picture so that you can video chat while browsing other servers and DMs. So I’m assuming this is going to be great for playing games with people, you can see each other’s screens and each other too.
