Game chat app Discord begins testing video chat and screen-sharing
Game chat app Discord begins testing video chat and screen-sharing
August 10, 2017 | By Alex Wawro




The folks behind popular game chat app Discord have begun testing video chat and screen-sharing functionality with a small subsection of desktop Discord users (~5 percent) ahead of a full rollout later this year.

Of course, there are already a number of tools that let you do video calls and screen-sharing, but Discord's game industry focus and booming userbase (which surpassed 45 million in May) makes this notable. 

If you're a dev who uses Discord to interact with your community of players, this opens up new ways for you to communicate with them and share what you're working on.

These sorts of game-focused chat apps aren't only valuable to devs with live games, either; earlier this summer a number of devs shared handy tips for how to use Discord to build up your community of players before your game is released.
