The popularity of Discord has skyrocketed over recent times with more than 90 million registered users.

If you play online games with friends i.e. PUBG or Minecraft then Discord servers can help you to communicate with them. All you need to do is register for a Discord account and then you can either run Discord via the app or your preferred web browser.

Why not use Skype instead?

If you only need to chat with a small group while gaming, then Skype and Discord will both be fine. But, should you want to alter individual people’s mic levels via the app and benefit from lower latency voice chat (useful when people are grouped together from different parts of the world) then Discord has Skype on toast. In addition, if your friends are all playing different games, but you wish to stay in touch then you are able to open up a separate voice chat channel while retaining the text chat option.
