Discord Keyboard Shortcuts Feat

Discord is a VoIP platform that allows you to communicate with people through video and voice conferencing, as well as instant messaging. In addition, Discord also allows you to send and receive different file types, and setup and view live broadcasts. Essentially, the platform functions like TeamSpeak.

Discord’s community lives on different servers with several channels inside each. These channels can be for different games, internet personalities, interests, etc.

However, Discord is popular among gamers who play titles that require constant and real-time communication. Players of competitive multiplayer games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, CSGO, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Call of Duty: Warzone use Discord to communicate with other players.
