  20 reviews

Discord is a free all in one messaging, voice, and video client thats available on your computer and phone.
Whether you’re part of a school club, gaming group, worldwide art community, or just a handful of friends that want to spend time together, Discord makes it easy to talk every day and hang out more often.
Talk to your friends with messaging, voice, and video in a "Direct Message" (1 other person), group chat (up to 10 people), or a multi-channel server (practically infinite maximum members).Discord servers are organized into topic-based channels where you can collaborate, share, and just talk about your day without clogging up a group chat.Grab a seat in a voice channel when you’re free. Friends in your server can see you’re around and instantly pop in to talk without having to call.Get a community of any size running with moderation tools and custom member access. Give members special powers, set up private channels, and more.Low-latency voice and video feels like you’re in the same room. Wave hello over video, watch friends stream their games, or gather up and have a drawing session with screen share.Available on Linux, macOS, Windows, iOS, Android, and your web browser.Discord is written in Javascript, React, Elixir, and Rust. The desktop application uses the electron framework.

The software generally works as expected, but the one major issue that I'm taking 2 stars off for is their habit of trying to force you to download updates outside of the software manager. You can't launch the app without getting the prompt to download the update, despite it not being available in the software manager yet.

The only issue with the Linux version is that screenshare cannot share audio. That's just a minor inconvenience, everything else works perfectly as it should.

The program works with remarkable efficiency! The only problem I have is there is no overlay when gaming, at least on Linux. Otherwise, it is an amazing package!

I can't send any files. Often it randomly closes itself or just hangs itself up. This only seems to happen under linux. Didn't have these problems under windows nor do I have them on my smartphone.

This app is broken on Mint 19.2. Sometimes it may quit by itself without any notification. During the screen share by other people in a group call, freezings occur, so you can not interact with this application. The only way to exit the app is to kill it through "System Monitor" and rejoin to voice chat/group call. The same app freezing problem happens during your own screen sharing in a group call and in voice chat channel ("Go Live" function). Due to these reasons, app is not usable at all.

Broken on Linux Mint 19.4. Randomly quits, leaving me talking into the wind. Solution as previously mentioned is to use discordapp on browser via web. I uninstalled it.

Works fine for awhile and then randomly closes without any sound or notification so I am left talking to myself until I realize the app closed. I tried all recommended fixes (disable accelerated hardware and other features, removed java, etc. etc.). As others have suggested the only work around I am aware of is using the browser version.

discord crashes with an error during a conversation in voice chat error "4 segmentation fault (core dumped) env TMPDIR=$XDG_CACHE_HOME zypak-wrapper /app/discord/Discord" system - linux mint 19.3

Marche parfaitement bien sur Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 et4 ! Le problème est le même sur tous les flatpaks de Discord, c'est l'appuyer pour parler qui peut être salement buggé par moments sur Wayland. Mais vu que ce dernier n'est pas disponible sur LM, ce n'est pas un problème en soi ;)

I tested it and seems to work just fine. Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon 64 bit Mobo: Gigabyte P35-DS3L . The only thing is i needed to use QasMixer for enabling recording from rear mic input.

The program sometimes crashes. I often need a lot of RAM and it doesn't detect my connection to steam and (which is obvious) wine games. After all, it's a faithful equivalent of the Windows version and despite the above disadvantages I recommend

Great Application when it works, but the .deb version crashes frequently with bad interface lag when used with Cinnamon, and the flatpak is the only usable version. The Flatpak *still* crashes periodically in a call, but works well outside of calls. Finally, the flatpak version can access a small selection of folders in the user's home directory for file upload.
