The popular game chat app Discord is moving away from video games and rebranding to make it a platform that can be used by everyone, not just gamers.
CEO Jason Citron made a statement on the subject in a blog post, saying that the new slogan is “Where you talk.”
“Games are what brought so many of you to Discord, and we will always be grateful for that. As time has passed, many of you have expressed that you want a platform where you can have fun and talk more comfortably with your own communities and friends,” he said.
Discord was first released in 2015 and is a popular platform with over 100 million monthly active users. The company stated that people talk for 4 billion minutes daily using 6.7 million servers. It was also announced that many people using the platform have nothing to do with the games.
As a result, Discord said it will make a few changes to its app to streamline the user experience.
“We’ve fixed hundreds of bugs, increased audio and video capacity by 200 percent, and invested in reliability and performance as our top priority. We’ve also made details in the app less game-specific to ensure everyone can join in the fun and make Discord more pleasant,” he said.
