      Discord vs Mumble opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Discord is still a legitimate alternative to Mumble, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      You can't host your own private server with control of the data, and it's a huge bloated application for voice chat because it's written in Electron JS.

      Discord works perfectly fine out of the box, and even tho it is centralized and closed-source it is still worth a shot due to its simplicity and free nature
