What Is Discord?

Discord is an instant messaging program that was initially released in 2015 by Discord Inc. The program is available for Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS, iPadOS, Android, and any compatible web browsers.

Discord is often used by gamers and Twitch streamers as an easy way to communicate with large groups of friends when playing games. The program is available to everyone at no cost.

Users are able to create a profile, direct message, start servers, and video call friends that also use Discord.

Is The Discord April Fools Prank Real?

On April 1, Discord tweeted that they would be releasing brand new Sound Packs for a limited time only. These sound packs consist of sounds by lil yachty, chaos, and…Discord’s uncle?

Many may read the tweet and attached video and assume it is just a fake advert that isn’t actually implemented into the program. But you would be wrong if you believe that.
