Chat app Discord releases free developer SDK GameBridge

Chat software firm Discord has opened a new program called GameBridge that gives developers tools to integrate its voice and text chat services in their games.

The free SDK lets devs use all of Discord’s features to build a custom UI for their games, while also helping developers grow their communities outside of the game.

According to Discord, examples of its software’s use could be to automatch players in voice rooms, extend guild chat outside of the game and letting players share gameplay moments.

Partners already pledging support for the software service include Nexon America, Boss Key Productions and several indie developers.

GameBridge is currently in closed beta, which developers can sign up to on the Discord website.

In the last five months Discord has racked up 25 million users and has had as many as 2.3 million weekly peak concurrent users, with 100 million messages sent every day.
