      Overwolf is an overlay, Discord is for chat. Sure there's _very_ minor overlap in functionality, but they do extremely different things.

      Xbox Game Bar vs Overwolf opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      OMGparticles The game bar is built into Windows, just press Win+G to open it. There is an SDK which allows the creation of custom widgets, and a widget store to download them directly through the overlay. Widgets can be pinned to remain on-screen with adjustable transparency even when the main overlay is closed.
