Messaging, Voice, and Video Client
  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 flatpak version runs in a sandbox to provide better safety and privacy for users. However, this sandboxing prevents the following features from working out of the box: Game Activity, Unrestricted File Access, Rich Presence. Check the README in the Github repo for details.

This wrapper is not verified by, affiliated with, or supported by Discord Inc.

Apart from the features it offers, nothing is right! This package is not modular and takes a lot of space to install. It is extremely buggy on many things: There are huge memory leaks - It uses a lot of cpu even in standby mode - It does not see all the folders in the file system - Audio and video codecs for multimedia communication are of terrible quality - He frequently plants. In short, it is a software coded much too fast, and therefore fatally badly coded.

A világ egyik leg elterjedtebb kommunikációs szoftvere. Azért ajánlom mert mindenki ezt használja, annak ellenére hogy nem a leg jóindulatúbb a program vagy a fejlesztője. Sokan írták hogy technikai problémáik voltak a Discorddal, nekem viszont egyike azon alkalmazásoknak amik mindíg hiba nélkül,megbízhatóan működtek. Van egy jobb verzió, az ArmCord, ami egy nyílt forráskódú Discord-frontend, de gyorsabb és beépített blockereket tartalmaz, így kevesebb információt tud kiszivárogtatni rólad a Discord.

Works decently, but file upload is quite broken: you don't have access to the whole filesystem, just to a few home directories. Copy-pasting images is broken too. Happens with other Flatpak packages.

Flathub version works the best (I've used Discord through many package managers). Still can't screenshare with audio though.

Seems OK to use.

Mic not working properly, application can change volume as seen in pavucontrol but no audio is making it over to Discord. Turning off noise suppression (the widely found solution the internet) does not work either.

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.

LM 20 - Works like a charm since I installed it. All functions/features, good sound quality. sending files (opposed to other ratings here) work fine too on my end.

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.
