Description [fr]

Un logiciel de chat vocal (ou Voip) à destination des joueurs, par le studio Hammer & Chisel.

Discord est un client VoIP propriétaire multi-plateforme (fonctionnant aussi sur votre navigateur) à faible latence avec une très bonne qualité audio (codec Opus, spécialisé dans la voix) et une interface simple / ergonomique. Il fonctionne sur le principe Clients/Serveur, n'importe quel utilisateur peut créer et administrer ses serveurs gratuitement. Sur ces serveurs, les administrateurs peuvent créer des canaux vocaux ou textuels.

Les développeurs prévoient d'ajouter l'appel vidéo et le partage d'écrans.

Ce type d'outil est devenu incontournable pour les parties multijoueur car il permet des communications instantanées entre équipiers (pour attaquer de façon concertée, organiser des parties, ...) tout en gardant les mains libres (le chat clavier est moins rapide).
Il peut être utilisé avec n'importe quel jeu, vous permettant de communiquer en direct avec vos partenaires/adversaires pour peu que vous disposiez d'un micro-casque.

Il est temps d'abandonner Skype et TeamSpeak.
Un chat tout-en-un pour la voix et le texte pour les joueurs, et il est gratuit, sécurisé et fonctionne sur votre bureau et votre téléphone. Cessez de payer pour les serveurs TeamSpeak et d'être harcelé avec Skype. Simplifiez-vous la vie.



Wikipedia:

Discord est un logiciel voix sur IP propriétaire développé par la start-up Hammer & Chisel.

Principe de fonctionnement

Discord fonctionne sur un principe de serveurs, n'importe quel utilisateur peut créer et ajuster ses serveurs gratuitement sans aucun coût. Sur ces serveurs, les administrateurs peuvent créer des canaux vocaux ou textuels.

Il est aussi possible, depuis le 28 juillet 2016, comme sur Skype, appeler directements ses contacts et créer des groupes de discussion.

Discord est un logiciel adapté pour les diffuseurs sur Twitch ou YouTube par exemple : le logiciel propose plusieurs outils pour connecter les spectateurs avec le diffuseur et masquer les informations personnelles du diffuseur.

Historique

Discord est créé par la start-up Hammer & Chisel en 2015 après avoir levé des fonds auprès de Tencent et de Benchmark capital, pour un montant total de 12 millions de $.

L’objectif des développeurs était de créer un logiciel de VoIP avec une latence la moins élevée possible et qui intègre la plupart des fonctionnalités de Skype et de TeamSpeak.

La start-up lève 20 millions de dollars supplémentaires en janvier 2016.

Wikipedia:

Discord (stylized as DISCORD) is a free proprietary VoIP application designed for gaming communities. Discord runs on Microsoft Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux, and in a web browser. In December 2016, the developers announced that Discord had over 25 million users.

History

Developer Hammer & Chisel moved from supporting their mobile MOBA game Fates Forever to creating Discord in 2015, releasing in May. Gaining initial support and funding through YouWeb's 9+ incubator, the company then raised funding through Benchmark capital and Tencent. The developers aimed to create a program with low latency communication that incorporated what they considered as the best aspects of other VoIP software such as Skype and Teamspeak.

The service was popularized by eSports and LAN tournament gamers, including popular users on the Twitch.tv streaming service and game communities like that of Star Citizen. The company, which shares the same name as the service, was founded by OpenFeint founder Jason Citron, who intends to keep the company independent.

The company raised an additional $20 million USD in funding for the software in January 2016.

Software

Discord runs on Microsoft Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux, and in a web browser, which all support fundamental chat-based text features. The Discord application for personal computers is designed for use while gaming, including features such as low-latency, free voice chat servers for users and a dedicated server infrastructure. Discord's developers plan to add video calling and screen sharing. Direct calling was added in an update on July 28, 2016, with support for calls between two or more users. The company introduced its GameBridge API in December 2016 that allows game developers to directly support integration with Discord within games.

While the software itself comes at no cost, the developers are investigating ways to monetize it, with possible options including paid customization options such as emoji or stickers. On December 23rd, 2016, Discord posted on their blog that they are eventually adding a way for people to support them using Discord Nitro. This is told to have Custom Emotes usable on every server, GIF Avatars, and more. Currently, Discord Nitro is only available to Australian users for testing.

Discord allows you to add friends and individually message them outside of servers.
Use our block feature to prevent direct messages from baddies. We even hide the offenders' text in servers - keep your eyes pure!

☑ See who's talking without pressing alt+tab

Discord's customizable overlay allows you to see who’s talking in the middle of the action. You can also adjust individual volume settings, change servers and channels, or even kick people all without leaving your game.
The overlay requires the Discord Windows Client and works on most games that use DirectX 9, DirectX 11, and OpenGL.
