    Discord Voice Chat

    Hey all,

    Wanted to let you know of a new voice chat web/desktop app my friends and I, as well as many people playing FFXIV, have been using. It's called Discord and it's made by Hammer and Chisel, founded by Jason Citron, who created OpenFeint. Also in the list of developers is Stanislav - whom many of you may know (made Guildwork!).

    Information about Discord can be found here: https://discordapp.com/
    Information about the company can be found here: http://www.hammerandchisel.com/

    Great things about this app:
    • Free
    • No user/room limit
    • Super light-weight
    • Clients for web, Windows, Mac, Android/iOS (voice chat coming for mobile soon)
    • Can easily invite friends by just giving them a link url, so it's very PUG friendly
    • Super easy to setup
    • Super clear voice chat
    • Very clean and intuitive interface that has good looking integrated text chat

    And there are many other great things! There are other features coming very soon, such as in-game overlay, and the voice chat in the mobile apps. I personally prefer this much more than Curse.

    Let me know what you all think - let's try to get as many people using this as possible!

    I tried it and it seems ok, but my mic is super quiet on it, compared to teamspeak/mumble

    Have you tried increasing the mic input volume?

    Was this with desktop or browser app ? Does your mic have automatic gain control built in ? If so did you try turning off our automatic gain control in discord advanced

    Just an update - C&H just submitted an update to Apple for the iOS Discord app. This will include the voice chat in the app, so you can just use your phone to connect to servers and chat with your friends. Should be reviewed by Apple and downloadable next week.
