Discord is a chat and communication application that originally catered to gamers. It is developed by Discord, Inc. which was known then as Hammer & Chisel. Unlike other communication apps, Discord is unique for its use of “servers” that users can create or join upon first signing up as well as its focus on voice channels rather than text.
Installation and Interface
Installing Discord is very simple. The size of the installer file isn’t that big, so downloading it won’t be a problem for most users. Once the installer file has been downloaded, users will just need to execute the installer file to start the installation process. If you already have a Discord account, just log-in and you’ll be taken to the starting screen immediately. If you don’t have an account yet, however, create one by providing an email, username, and password.
When you first enter, you’ll be prompted to create or join a server. Choose the appropriate option, and the app will take you to the home screen. On the left side of the home screen, you’ll find your list of servers and chat groups. To its right is the chat window. In the chat window, users can send GIFs and emoticons for a more playful conversation.
How to Use
To use Discord, you must first join a server. As stated above, you can also choose to create one for yourself. Once you’re in a server, you can start adding people to it. Within the server, users can create channels to keep discussions on different topics separate.
Probably the best thing about Discord, however, is its use of voice meetings. Discord is one of the best platforms to host voice chats due to the simplicity of its nature. It also has audio enhancements so users won’t have to worry about distorted audio when making calls or voice meetings in Discord.
A Messaging App to Rival the Greats
Discord may be a newcomer to the messaging app scene, but it certainly isn’t pulling any punches. It comes equipped with nice tools and features that anyone will appreciate, whether they’re a non-gamer or not. In fact, Discord might have the capacity to expand to professional settings with its easy usability. Whatever it’s being used for. Discord will definitely not disappoint.
