Discord is a real-time communication platform for creating communities. It's commonly used by gamers but also has a strong presence with developers and educators. Through Discord’s interface, users can send text messages, voice chat in real time, send multimedia files and have private conversations through direct messaging. Servers are used for hosting these different channels of communication simultaneously and can be moderated by server owners or administrators to maintain order within the community. The software is available across operating systems including Windows, macOS, Android and iOS devices. Discord has evolved beyond its gaming roots into an all-purpose socializing app that caters to niche interests with its flexible permissions system that allows you to set rules on who can see what without complicating the user experience too much from a design point of view.
