How it works

How does discord work?

The answer is wrapped up in a word: "Server".

Similar to Slack, Discord allows users to set up a chat room as a server to invite friends.

When someone is invited to the server, they will receive a link to join. They can then text or voice chat with the users of this server.

Each server can be divided into several small channels to discuss certain topics. Channels can be in the form of text or voice discussions so they are easier to use.

You can also create personal channels on a private server, so that only the invited people can enter the room to use them.

Best of all, the server can be public for anyone to join or private for only those who are invited.

You can be a member of many servers at one time, making Discord a social interaction center.

You can also own your own server for yourself and your friends to discuss tactics before playing while being a member of some public server.

Discord does not limit the number of server users can join. You can easily switch from server to server when you want.

The server list is always displayed on the left of the application. You just need to click on the server you want to go to.

Discuss, chat voice

After joining a chat channel, click on the shared conversation channel. Or you can create a private conversation with someone in the server.

After connecting, you can adjust the mic and sound below.


Discord is a large chat community with a strong technological advantage.

It helps users search the community to discuss a topic, find a group of people playing a certain game. Create your own group chat room. Sound quality, hardware optimization, free service and lots more.
