Discord interested in dedicated Switch app



I've been told that Discord is all the rage with the kids nowadays. I'm sure quite a few of you would like to see this happen as well. Like the gang said, if you want to see this happen, hit up that link in their tweet!

Unless Switch allows multitasking, which it doesn't right now, Discord wouldn't be a solution for onboard voice chat. They'd have to work directly with Nintendo to integrate it into the OS. Now THAT would be cool.

I really don't get discord. It's just a chat app, right? I use it because we wanted a better way to talk for my subreddit, my friend asked me to join his, and one of my favorite YouTubers has one. I just read it. I don't chat that often.

It also has voice chat, so it could be an alternative for those who want to be able to chat with friends while playing games instead of using the smartphone app.

Lol I doubt anyone is using that app, dude. Skype and Discord will probably be used more than the app.

Oooh yes, especially if it has chatting with friends over text/in groups

I'd love for Discord to come to the Switch, even though its verasitlity would be a bit limited without multitasking.

However, I don't know if Nintendo would allow it. They probably don't want any more negative publicity in case some kid stumbles across NSFW things on there.

Discord like TeamSpeak is basically the reason why people don't use on board voice chat anymore, and probably the reasoning behind Nintendo's decision to create their own equivalent of it.

Any chance of a GoNintendo Discord channel? I'd love to be part of that!
