Overall Satisfaction with Discord

We use discord for our gaming meetups and social events. I have joined various hobby and interest channels and love how easy it is to use. We use the voice chat for our gaming nights, and don't really have any problems with sound and setups, it just works well. We share our resources and memes. Some channels we use to create a community of like minded individuals, a space where we can share our interest and organize meet ups. The video chat and streaming works well in our learning workshops, and can teach our audience through screen share.
  • video chat with team - screen share
  • text chat with multi channels and hastags
  • control over roles and members
  • sharing files and resources with team members
  • Interest groups and hobby community building
  • change profile name /details for different channels
  • how to find other communities
  • getting mass adoption - business clients don't use discord
  • team collaboration
  • direct connection with audience and community members
  • more gaming friends
For our gaming nights, communication is vital especially in our multiplayer games , and the only voice product that worked smoothly is Discord. Skype's sound would cut out and Zoom's security was poor. Also Discord allows you to join public servers and there are roles which protect members from the public. Skype, google hangouts and Zoom's file sharing and text mode is not good compared to discord.

Discord is great for communities and teams. Especially around hobby and interests, such as gaming. The only reason why I don't see it being used in a business environment, is that businesses have so many other options already in place, like Zoom, Google Meets, Slack, etc. The best thing Discord is best for is voice over for gaming. It's also cool to socialize with like minded communities in voice or share thoughts and ideas in text.
