You’ve finally reached that all-important stage of the game – the one you’ve been striving to get to for months when your best buddy decides to Skype you. Of course, you want to tell him how great you are and show him where you are, finally, in your favourite game… but Skype suddenly causes your PC to disconnect, leaving you frustrated, without a game and without a friend to complain to about it! The latest and easiest answer is Discord which offers a free and secure voice and text chat designed just for you. With its minimal CPU usage, the running of your game continues undisturbed while the voice quality is impeccable. You also don’t have to take too much time away from your game to install Discord as it takes a mere 10 seconds to run the entire set up and won’t ask you to reconfigure any oblique settings or download any additional drivers.
Following in the footsteps of other services, such as TeamSpeak and Mumble, Discord is designed to enable players in multi-player games to chat to each other while playing. This means their hands are still free to operate the controls, giving them a competitive advantage over other players. The difference with Discord is that it’s lightweight service means a lot less resources are gobbled up while using it. It has also targeted many of the security issues experience by users of rival software, particularly those that required players to share IP addresses simply to connect. Using modern technology and with its focus clearly set on the world of gameplay. By using an advanced audio format that compresses speech, Discord has powered past many of its competitors and is reported to have over 25 million users worldwide. With the introduction of its Gamebridge API at the end of 2016, Discord went one step further in integrating its chat service into the very fabric of the game. While there are additional add-ons that users can pay for, the basic service does the job. Its current popularity is testament to the fact that Discord performs and performs impeccably. The only sensible answer is to download it today and revolutionize your gaming experience.
