Discord is one of the best free chat applications built specifically for gamers. It works very well on Android, iOS, Mac, and even Windows 10. It offers Slack-style texting, group voice-over chat channels, and much more. Back in the day, the best tool like this was Xfire, but it is a useless tool in comparison to Discord. Here’s how to make a good Discord server on your own.
You don’t have to worry, and you can set up your own Discord server free of any charges. The best part about all of this, there are almost no limitations on these servers. You can join one of the ten thousand existing servers on Discord. Similar to Reddit, there are so many niche servers where like-minded people chat.
Or you can easily create your own server on Discord, for example, for Cod: MW5 room for you and your friends to play!
