      Uploadcare is mostly remote team and we're using video conferencing all the time both for internal team meetings and for external sales, support, interview, etc. calls. I think we've tried every solution there is on the market before we've decided to stop with Zoom.

      Tools just plainly don't work (Skype), are painful to install for external participants (Webex and other "enterprise" solutions) can't properly handle 10+ participants calls (Google Hangouts Chat).

      Zoom just works. It has all required features and even handles bad connections very graciously. One of the best tool decisions we've ever made :)

      Review ofDiscordDiscord

      Discord combines the text and image sharing of Skype and Teamspeak 3's high speed voice connection to create this reliable software platform. With the implementation of choosing whether you wish to chat with friends in a 1-on-1 conversation, to joining a community channel and meet up with new people.

      Discord provides the opportunity of letting the user join a channel with ease using nothing but a link they can paste into their browser. Discord also gives their members a wider experience being cross-platform, including Windows, Mac, Linux as well as IOS and Android mobile devices.

      Discord, on top of all the above, allows the user to post images in both channels and 1-on-1 messaging, aswell as play .gif and .mp4 files.

      Implemented also is the custom profile and friend system, allowing the user to add or remove friends, giving the user a vaster experience customizing their own way they wish.

      Discord is an overall very well produced platform allowing a diverse experience in communication and multimedia.

      Durch die einfache und plattformübergreifende Nutzung sowie die Möglichkeit schnell rollenbasierte Kanäle zu erstellen, bietet sich Discord hervorragend für die Kommunikation im Team sowie auch mit den Spielern an. Wir nutzen Discord statt Slack, da wir unseren Fokus im Gaming Bereich haben und Discord hier stark vertreten ist.

      Discord is home to many game development communities, including AGDG (Amateur Game Development General), RGD (Reddit Game Development), and Game Dev League. When I'm working with WebGL, they are always very knowledgeable and helpful in answering my questions about physics, vectors and data structures.

      We first used slack and switched to Discord later to stay near at where the community is at, while still be able to have private conversations and stay in contact. Discord offered everything we needed and used from Slack previously, plus the community-part, so it was an easy decision.

      Discord is used for all the discussions with our community, and discussions between our entire staff (including Community Managers, Chat Moderators and BATs). We also use a Discord bot we developed to deploy new code to the server.

      We use Discord for our community as well as generic staff communications. It works as a main selling point for ShadowICT as well as a central place for monitoring alerts and announcements to go.
