Your site to talk with friends and communities

Discord is a free program for Windows for voice and text chat that allows you to communicate with your friends and gaming partners easily and fun. The service also allows you to create or join chat servers dedicated to different topics, games, communities, or interests.

Very similar to other messaging programs like Slack or WhatsApp, with Discord you can send text messages, images, videos, emojis, stickers, and GIFs, as well as talk by voice or video with other users. You can also share your screen or stream your video game sessions live.

What is Discord?

Discord is an instant messaging platform created by Jason Citron that offers a very comprehensive, yet intuitive and easy to use environment. With Discord, you can send text messages, make VoIP calls using the user's Wi-Fi network or mobile data plan, and make video calls with friends with a fairly interesting level of quality.

In Discord, you will have plenty of options to configure your profile, preferences, notifications, and security. You can choose your avatar, status, game mode, and nickname; adjust the volume of calls, sound sensitivity, and quality; enable or disable notifications for messages, mentions, roles, and channels, and block or report users who bother or harass you.

Join communities with similar interests

Discord also allows you to create or join servers: virtual spaces where you can chat with other users about specific topics or play online games, organized into categories and channels (subsections within servers that can be text or voice). You can search for public servers in the Discord directory or create your own private server and invite your friends.

To use Discord, you only need to create a free account with a username, email address, and password. The service also offers two premium plans: Nitro and Nitro Basic, which, starting at €2.99 per month, offer improvements for servers and various advantages for users, such as the ability to use custom emojis on any server or fully customize your profile.

An essential program for any player

Discord is a very popular program among players, as it allows them to communicate with their teammates or rivals while playing online. The service integrates with other platforms such as Steam, Epic Games, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, or Twitch itself, and displays what you are playing or watching in your profile status.

But even if you don't play anything and just want to talk to your loved ones, Discord is a very complete and versatile platform that offers you many possibilities to communicate and have fun with other people.

Discord is compatible with Windows 7 and higher versions (including Windows 11), and is available in Spanish. Don't wait any longer and join the Discord community!
