People swear by Discord. It’s better than everything, or so they seem to think.
Maybe I’m just getting old, but I really don’t like Discord. I respect the audio quality and I think if it were a bit more simplified, it would be really good.
Where it breaks down is how frightfully unintuitive it is. First, you have to create your own server. Fine. Whatever. Then you create channels for different topic discussions. If you want to do audio chat, you have to join the audio channel of the text channel. O. K. When it works, it’s great. When it doesn’t work, you just start jumping channels and closing the program until it starts working again.
What if you want to do video chat? I’m glad you asked. I don’t know how it works. You can easily do a direct video chat with someone, one-on-one, but video in an audio chat channel? Is that how… it’s supposed to work? Is it a group video/audio chat then? I don’t know, because trying it didn’t work for us.
I did really like Craig recording bot that helped us record our podcasts. But Craig appears to be dead and won’t record more than 16 seconds.
If you like Discord, keep using it. If you haven’t used it before, give it a try and I hope you don’t get frustrated.
