Monday, July 17, 2017 Discord Portable, all-in-one voice, video 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)

Portability Notes

  • Discord do not have portable mode. It stores some settings in Windows registry while running.
  • We redirect Windows' %USERPROFILE% environment variable to Discord portable's Data\Home folder—so most of it are portable.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by upvoting this request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
