Discord for Linux Goes Stable, Is Available to Download Now

Gaming group chats on linuxjustlevelledup ― anofficial, stable desktop Discord Linux app is now available to download.

The release of the app, which has been availableas a ‘canary’ development build for almosta year, was announced on Twitter with (quite possibly) the most amazing bit of Tux-themed artwork ever:

Wait, What IS Discord?

Discord bills itself as an “ all-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone.”

And it’s not lying.

Whileit is notas well-known as other group-focused VoIP services, like Skype , TeamSpeak or FOSS-fave Mumble ,Discordhas fast establisheditself as a very worthy alternative.

It’s done this by doing two crucial things: 1) it’s madegroup chat ridiculously easy to set up and join in with; and 2) the servicehas apersonality.

No offence to Skype, but it is deathly dull. Even its animated emojis look like they’ve been focus-grouped to death.

Discord is bright, gaudy, and fun ― and manages to nail its USP of offering(super simple) voice and text chat for groups

A Bit Like IRC, But Not Like IRC

The app is primarily based aroundorganised channels rather than a ‘buddy list’ so to speak, and like Slack or (at a stretch) IRC, italso supports some text commands too ( /tableflip and /shrug areprobably the most used)

Naturally a service is only as good as the people you can speak to on it, and in this area Discord comes up trumps. Itsnew Linux desktop app joins official apps forwindows, macOS, Android, iOS and (naturally) a web client .

What’s more, unlike Skype, all of these apps not only lookthe same and work the same, but support all thesame features.

Unlike Mumble or TeamSpeak you don’t have to configure and host your own server. The downside to that is you’re relying on Discord ― if they go down, so does your the commentary on whatever online melee you’re playing. But, on the flip, not having to jump through hoops to get set up means its a quick couple of clicks and a copy-pasted link to get up and chatting.

Discord is also free ― at least for now. The company says it may introduce some optional real-money extras, like sticker packs and so on, similar to WeChat and other platforms.

As out buddies at Gaming on Linux point out : don’t gettoo caught up worrying about the implications of the scaryterms and conditions that accompany usage of the service. The “granted rights” to whatever you post spiel, while not awesome, is not that different from any other service you pump your personality in toeach day, be it Facebook, Reddit, Twitch, and so on.
