Discord has announced a new text chat feature in its voice channels that is currently available to users. With the new feature, Discord users will be able to send messages and post links and engage in conversations across voice channels on the app. The text chat feature is claimed to be a dedicated messaging space across voice channels for Discord users. In addition, the text chat feature, when used within the voice channel on the app, will be free to use for every server, according to the company.
according to a blog post By Discord, the messaging app has announced that its users can now collaborate and share whatever they want across voice channels on the app. Users will now be able to share or post any message, link, emoji, sticker, or GIF to the Voice channel with other users via the chat bubble icon.
According to the company, users will also be able to see new message previews that will appear on the top right corner of the app when someone else has posted something in a voice channel chat in which they have participated. On the other hand, users can also check in on voice channel chat without joining the call.
The company has mentioned that all non-community servers will be able to automatically access the text chat feature across voice channels through the server settings. While community enabled servers can also opt for this feature.
Meanwhile, Discord has also announced that as of June 29, 2022, voice channels on the app across all servers, including the community, will have an enabled text chat feature by default.
The text chat feature in voice channels is available on all platforms where Discord is available, including Android, iOS, macOS, Linux, Windows, and browsers.
Furthermore, as per a previous report, Discord also rolled back an issue in February that had prompted thousands of users to report issues with the messaging platform. More than 44,000 users reported problems with Discord on DownDetector.com, a website that tracks outages on its platform by combining status reports from multiple sources, including user-submitted errors.
