    Discord announced on twitter that upcoming discord features that been wanted (I assume) for long time, video chat and screen sharing will be available sometime. To prepare for the feature, they amass hundreds of new servers in US and EU.



    I'm sharing this to inform some people since is probably a good thing. It means you can do video chats with friends on both Desktop and mobile apps, and screen share. Screen share is a feature like similar social apps that allow you and your friend to display your computer screen for things like sharing info, showing how to do some things or working on projects together.

    What I find of interest is now you can probably broadcast games with this feature, not only to friend but entire group servers. Of course I dunno if that is the case but it would be a nice thing to have. I hope to see more "BUFFS" in the future. :)

    No. The server development I want to see is an open protocol and the ability to run my own servers.

    i dunno
    It shouldn't be too much longer for real since atleast in Canary video calling has been implemented for some time, just not usable/accessible to anyone but devs (or sneaky sneaks)
