In a new update released today for desktops, browsers, and iOS (Android version will be coming soon), Discord has enhanced video chat capabilities through Server Video, a feature that allows users to Join and withdraw from a video call with the touch of a button while in any Discord voice channel. Although Discord has had video chat functionality since 2017, before, you needed to create separate chat groups for each call.

In a recent post on Discord’s blog, the company said it wanted to improve video chat for a long time, and when a pandemic hit, forcing people to work and study at home, they decided prioritizing the development of the Server Video feature to keep up with the schedule.
Along with the Server Video feature, Discord announced that it will officially support Discord on Safari of macOS, so you won’t need to install the desktop application anymore. And if that improvement is not enough, Discord also released a few other quality improvements, including improved video chat performance on Discord’s web app on Chrome so users no longer need to download the Extends Discord exclusively for Chrome.

What about everything else? Discord is fast becoming a reliable communication service for both gamers and casual users.
