TeamSpeak Replacement > Discord
« on: April 02, 2017, 04:55:03 pm »
Hey everyone!

We've setup a Discord server and have begun testing/configuring it to be a very possible candidate to switch away from TeamSpeak. Not everything is setup the way I like since I've been working on other things, but I'd go ahead and make the switch over now as TeamSpeak will likely be shutdown in the coming weeks. You may click the invite here to setup and account and join our server -

https://discord.gg/PBkTjwm

Some things to note:
1. Discord will automatically setup voice recognition instead of Push-to-Talk. This is pretty normal for most voice applications but you might look into the settings to adjust this when you first join. The mobile and thick client Push-to-Talk settings don't seem to sync so if you're a P2T junky you'll want to switch this on both applications.

2. All applications are free - this includes the thick client for PC/Mac/Linux and Android/iOS and the web client. The mobile apps are NICE by the way. Much better than TeamSpeak and without the $$$.

3. There are TEXT and VOICE channels. You can be in one or the other or both. This for instance allows you to text chat in the General chat while playing Call of Duty and talking in the Call of Duty chat.

4. Supports inline images, GIFs, videos! Who doesn't love them a little GIF in the morning?

This is still undergoing testing so you may see big changes over the next few weeks, but go ahead and join us!

Sweeeeet, never liked Teamspeak (no hate) - Push to talk got in the way of all my other hotkeys and it was really annoying (on the rare occasions I did use it). I think Discord will work out fan-flaming-tastic so cheers to you my friend

You can set up voice activation with Discord too. I don't know what time you come in there but it gets so crowded in discord I have to mute it sometimes because there's so many people.

You must be getting on at some odd times. I've had to mute the mobile app because it's almost non-stop with notifications lol. I set it so I only get notified if someone mentions my name (i.e. @TwiZted)

I totally have nothing to do with the amount of @mentions you get, either. :^)
