Discord Portable, all-in-one voice and text chat!
"The voice quality is crisper and clearer thanks to a more modern voice engine than what’s used by the now decade-and-a-half-old choices like TeamSpeak and Ventrilo..." —Tom Marks, (May 13, 2016)
"Discord positions itself as a way to replace your programs such as Skype, TeamSpeak, Mumble, Ventrillo, etc..." —Aikage, (Sep 19, 2015)
"Tl;dr Discord seems to be great (feature whise), but there are some really big issue with fundamental stuff like audio quality and latency. In the end i hope Discord will succeed because it's really above its opponent feature wise." —Mrpoussin (a user), (Dec 26, 2015)
