      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.

      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.

      Bruden While the privacy and self-hosting features are nice, I don't see this becoming a wide-spread alternative to Discord, if only because it's overly complicated for what it is.

      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.

      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).

      The audio quality is great and has less latency than Discord. The server is self-hosted so there is more flexibility as well. But that's the only expect that is better than Discord. Discord has much more functionality like video calling, rich text server chat, etc.

      Opensource and easy-to-create servers. However, you have to host the servers as mumble doesn't do it themselves.

      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.

      sethpdietrich I like Guilded as an alternative because I feel like the developers are super friendly and active, and it seems to have a LOT of features that Discord sort of skips out on. The fact that I don't have to pay a subscription to the devs (and now you can only pay to the owner of your server - no Nitrolike option at all!) for the features is actually really great.
