Discord is a free chat and call application for gamers launched in 2015. Here, users use to communicate online before, during and after playing video games. During its operation, the company constantly added many new features to perfect the application, suitable for many different audiences. Discord has so far become a space for gamers to share experiences with the community. Even a “land show” for content creators and developers.
Recently, Discord continues to have “quality” additions. Accordingly, users can now watch videos together or play some light games such as: Poker Night, Sketch Heads, Chess, Land-io, Letter League… The games are designed to run only on the Discord platform. Developed by Discord and some third parties. In addition, the application also adds the App Directory – a new store where users can download third-party applications.
These innovations are part of our strategy to build simple, engaging, highly entertaining activities that allow people to connect and engage with each other on Discord. Previously, last year, the company surveyed and 85% of users said they often play games with friends via Discord, the main purpose is to connect with friends.
The Discord platform has also established a $5 million ecosystem fund to invest in its community and app development. These efforts are part of Discord’s dedication to “building an open platform,” which Anjney Midha, vice president of platform ecosystem at Discord, shared during a press conference.
