Microsoft buying Discord doesn't seem like the end of the world.
In any case if you're looking for an alternative we've been experimenting with @[email protected] for awhile now. Element works pretty great and can bidirectionally bridge to your Discord server: https://matrix.org/bridges
@matrix microsoft did what
@matrix So does that mean they also buy all Discord data? I am trying to understand who owns the data, where its stored, if its encrypted, etc. Thanks!
@matrix I wish Element got higher budget to be able to fund the development of voice channels to Matrix. Without this feature I will replace Discord with Jitsi
I know, the current implementation cannot compete against Discord and because Microsoft is trying to buy Discord this feature is even more needed.
There is Github issue about this topic but it is priority level 3 so most likely we won't see it anytime soon:
mastodon.matrix.org is one server in the network
