Opening up

Looking ahead, Discord will be focusing most of its efforts on the continued stability of its platform, as well as adding much-requested features such as audio-enabled screen share.

It is also making efforts to become a more diverse company. It claims to have "created some internal goals for 2018" that will promote diversity and inclusiveness at the developer.

Discord surpassed 45 million users in May 2017, meaning it has gained an additional 42 million users in the last six months or so. At that time, it had a 8.9 million DAUs sending six billion messages a month.
