So, what is Discord exactly? What features does it offer that set it apart from numerous other (seemingly similar) apps? And finally – why do people like Discord? Let’s find out!
Flexibility & Features of Discord
Discord comes free of charge, and you can use it on just about any platform or device. And even if you don't want to download anything, you can always use Discord in a Web browser. Still, that's only where Discord's features begin to unravel, so let's take a closer look:
- Text Messages, Video & Audio Calls: You’ve probably heard about ‘Discord servers’ before. Well, Discord’s servers aren’t any complex physical units – which is what you probably think when we mention ‘servers.’ Instead, those are individual channels or communities that can contain as few or as many people are you want – so you can share messages, as well as make video and audio calls (for free, of course).
- Broadcasting & Screen Sharing: If you want to broadcast just about any activity you do on your device, Discord makes that quite easy. That way, you can share your screen one-on-one with someone, or even better, you can broadcast your screen to an entire Discord community. Possibilities are endless!
- Lively Communities Focused on Common Interests: You've probably seen Instagram influences marketing their Discord servers (many of which are private, available for a fee). Similarly, you can find free of charge Discord communities focused on individual influencers, activities (such as gaming, programming, personal development, and similar), and shared interests (music, movies, pets, and more).
- A New Era for Social Gaming: And finally, let's not forget that Discord began its life with a strong gaming focus. This was initially a communication app designed to let you talk to your friends and followers while playing desktop games. Even though Discord's features grew in a big way over the last couple of years, this app is still indispensable in the world of gaming.
Stack Browser Makes Using Discord Much Easier!
We have to admit – Discord is unbelievably powerful, flexible, and customizable. However, it does have its limits, which is why we’d like to introduce you to Stack, a new-generation Web browser that can make using Discord much easier!
Unlike any Web browser, Stack doesn’t offer tabs. Instead, it offers cards using which you can browse websites while seeing all of them on your screen at once. And since each card works independently, you can log in to multiple Discord accounts at once. Even better, you can view and interact with those accounts simultaneously, letting you exchange messages, as well as make video or audio calls using multiple Discord servers. Everything about Stack is designed to enhance your productivity and elevate your experience of using Web apps, turning Discord into its best possible version.
To learn more about Stack’s features and capabilities, we recommend checking out Stack’s official blog. And if you wish to give it a go, know you can get started with Stack free of charge, and it’s available for both Windows and macOS!
