Our vision is to bring gaming communities together

Discord is the all-in-one voice, video and text chat app designed specifically for gamers. It's free, secure, and works on both desktop and phone. Discord's mission is to bring people together around games. Diversity and inclusiveness are a critical part of how we get there. Everyone here believes that with diversity comes a better product, better decisions, and a better work environment. We are committed to making Discord representative of the world we want to live and play in. Two hundred seventy million PC gamers use chat apps to communicate while playing online games. As gamers, we got fed up with many of these chat tools and decided to fix the problem ourselves. As a result, we've built the best all-in-one voice and text chat app for gamers. Fortunately, a lot of people love it. Discord currently has 87 million registered users with over 14 million Daily Active Users. The service sees 9.5 billion messages posted a month, 1.5M new users per week and in 130 countries.
