I switched from slack to discord for daily communication with my remote team same day I tried it. We liked it for following reasons –
- Screensharing, unlimited messages in free plan
- Whole team stays active in a voice channel and it is much easier to ask a quick query or make a joke,
- Remote working gets more human
Curiosity and google took me to Slack vs Discord article for the detailed version.
Also, thinking more about it. Discord does a better job on keeping people stay connected remotely, because it was created to target gamers.
Its just more human to give a hollar in an always active voice-channel on Discord to reach other team mate or make a quick joke. Just like actually working together.
