Discord has been originally the go-to solution of in-game comms for gamers since a long time. But now, Discord has been serving as a great medium of interaction for various communities. Discord comes up with regular updates to enhance the overall user experience. It recently added the feature of Discord Stage Channel.
You would already be familiar with voice channels that typically let anyone in them talk freely. Meanwhile, Stage Channel is designed so that only a select certain people talk at once to a group of listeners. This would prove beneficial to those who plan to organize events like community town halls or AMAs.
