About Discord

Discord was created by Hammer and Chisel, a game development company. It was created for gamers and meant to ease out the struggle of group voice communication in the game.

Released on 13th May 2015, this app supports video, voice, and text communication. This app allows users to connect with people with the same interests by creating a specific server.

The primary selling point of Discord is that it has no limit to the number of users on the free servers. Yeah, whether you want thousands of simultaneous connections on a server, there’s no issue. Contact the support of Discord, and they will move your server to a hardware supporting server.
