      Element vs Discord
      pros, cons and recent comments
      nipos It also has chat rooms which can be combined into groups (like Discords servers) and group voice calls. It's open source and can be hosted on an own server or used on one of many free servers.

      RemovedUser Decentralized, end-to-end encrypted, and easy to use. Excellent client for creating a voice chat room for gaming. Of all the alternatives here, this one most closely mirrors Discord (while not infringing on your privacy).

      Voice features are just lacking too far behind or practically non existent compared to discord. No channels, no audio wizards setup or even basic settings like volume control or open mic threshold settings, no push to talk. It's very very barebones. If it were to have Mumbe's voice features instead of Jitsi's it would be a discord killer.

      besttoasterovens It is more special to use for me. I love this feature.

      Can create communities and channels, and it's federated, so it's really like Discord where you can join any public community

      coralinecastell FOSS, end-to-end encryption, beautiful interface, easy to set up, fast, responsive. Not bloated like Discord, not a privacy hazard like Discord. You can host your own server. Frequently updated. Supports gifs, videos, emoticons, etc. Clean sound.

      Risei Significantly safer than Discord. Much better text chat features, although lacking in the voice chat department.
      Positive comment about 1 year ago

      User4133612 Telegram is more akin to whatsapp than discord. Discord would be closer to mumble, teamspeak or ventrilo.

      It's almost exactly like SMS
      Negative comment almost 2 years ago

      Telegram as a communications system does most of what Discord offers, Voice chat is more like a Skype alternative.

      The privacy capability gives Tox an edge over most other alternatives to Discord.
      Top positive comment  about 2 years ago

      Tox is general has great ideas, I love the decentralized part, but also miss features of a centralized service like sending messages to offline users. Would be cool if someone manage to make a web client for Tox.

      RemovedUser it is not gaming-oriented
      Top negative comment  over 3 years ago

      RemovedUser Tox is an amazing idea, and when it works, it works well. But it's so buggy that it's unusable for me. When they get the kinks worked out this will be an excellent chat/voice/video client.
      Positive comment about 2 years ago

      Good privacy, same voice codec.

      You can chat via it with audio - and also video, that trumps Discord!

      Many features discord has are paid in Slack, it's a horrible alternative targeted for businesses

      Slack = business Discord = Gaming
      Negative comment over 1 year ago

      User4133612 They do have voice calling but slack isn't made for gaming. Compared to mumble, teamspeak or ventrilo, you would be better off using your phone in a group call. Latency is going to be the biggest issue since slack's target audience is business and not gaming.
      Negative comment over 1 year ago

      RemovedUser you can't just open a second organization chat in one app instance - you must have it opened twice (more RAM usage), also it doesn't have voice chat.
