Likelihood to Recommend

Discord

Discord is great for communication in the office. With everyone working remotely, it can be hard to lean over to tell someone about something you've been working on. We can use discord channels to communicate with a whole team or direct messaging to communicate with someone specifically on a particular issue. I have been using Discord for many years and have found it a valuable tool in all things communication-based.

Lua

I wouldn't recommend Lua because they were recently acquired by another company and will be shutting down. It was unfortunate that we were only given 2 months notice right after signing up for another 1-year term.

I have very rarely had an issue with Discord that I needed to contact support about, but when I have, support has been very quick about reaching back out to me and assisting me in resolving my issue. They read what you say and respond to it with intelligent and helpful responses. Nothing is more frustrating when you try communication with the support of a company and they don't actually read what you have to say or what your issue is. Luckily, Discord takes the time necessary to evaluate problems on an individual basis and assist you based on the problems you're facing.

They are closing operations, so there's no support to rate

Alternatives Considered

Discord

Discord is basically the version of Skype that you've always wanted. It makes it easy for you to chat with your friends, video call them, and make conference calls. It's a MUCH quicker system and does not seem to have such an impact on my hardware as well. Discord is doing things right when it comes to a chat system.

Lua

We chose Lua because of their price point and feature set compared to other tools.
