One of the easiest ways to chat with your friends whilst gaming, and indispensable tool for chatting with your followers!
Discord is a multi-platform messaging app that was created specifically for gamers. It allows you to meet up with your team online, see who's playing or not, and stay up to date on the group's conversation history.
This app has both vocal and text messaging features as well as image- and video-sharing capabilities. You can also program push notifications so that you never miss an important message.
Additionally, you can create your own discussion server, which you can make public or private. You can, then, invite who you want to participate in the conversation. For those interested in online gaming, the program is also compatible with various streaming applications, allowing you to broadcast your gaming session online.
You can also open discord directly in your browser, after you have entered your user name and login details.
Discord is also available for download on Mac and Linux here and for other iOS devices here.
