WHAT'S THE MEANING?
Discord is a voice over Internet Protocol application which provides a free text chat and voice communication to users. It was founded by Jason Citron in 2015. This all-in-one voice and text chat application and communication platform has almost 130 million users as of May 2018. It was originally designed for gamers to allow them to connect with other gamers from different parts of the world, but this application is also widely used by non-gamers such as anime lovers, creatives, organizations, and more. There are also emote servers for those people who are interested to express and share their emotions with other people using the Discord application.
