Discord is a free application created for video game communities. The platform is available on Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux and in web browsers. In May 2018 there were 130 million unique users registered in the application, and in May 2020 there are approximately 300 million Registered users.
The application works on the basis of groups called “servers”, in which several people can participate and can communicate through chats called “channels”. Anyone can create a server for free, with no additional payments required. Users can also communicate privately through Direct Messages (DM).
