Discord is a free text, voice, and video chat platform designed for gamers. It is available on both desktop and mobile app. On desktop, Discord can be accessed either through the Discord browser or via download of the platform, while on mobile Discord can be downloaded as an app or used through your mobile browser.

When on Discord, you can add fellow members as friends with whom you can text and call individually and in groups. You can also create or join up to 100 servers. Servers are used by businesses, game developers, and fan groups to connect with others and form communities. Servers can be set to either public, accessible by anyone with a discord login, or private and also accessible via a special link shared by the creator. Servers can be divided into different text and voice channels centered around a given topic. Voice channels include video chat and screen sharing. This helps keep chats on-topic and uncluttered. Channels can also be marked public or private.

Discord’s free service includes all of the above as well as Discord bots and screen sharing in server. Discord bots are programs that can send messages, collect data, and moderate conversations automatically according to their set programming. For example, a bot may generate a welcome message whenever a new user joins the server. Bots are a great way to easily manage servers and maximize productivity.

Discord includes screen sharing capabilities during video chat so you can share your desktop during a call. You can share videos on Discord of up to 8 MB by uploading files in the text chat, or up to 50 MB if you purchase Discord Nitro (discussed below). Discord also includes an integration with Droplr which allows for the easy sharing of screenshots and screen recordings in the text chat. This is particularly helpful for gamers and developers who want to share a game’s development progress or demonstrate how to earn a certain achievement.
