This app allows users to create servers that consist of a variety of text and voice channels. The service is highly customizable, with low latency voice which makes it a popular tool for Twitch streamers and podcasters, and it has also grown to support large video chats to keep up with the Zoom generation. Discord is now a host to more than 140 million users, and has been remodeled with a simple tagline “Your place to talk.” This app was known to help gamers communicate while competing in such PC titles, however it has been reported by 70% of users that they use this app for a non-gaming purpose.
