Hello everyone. I was wondering what the majority of PMC uses. If you wouldn't mind as to click one of those boxes and submit it, I would appreciate it a ton! Thank you!

That's sorta tricky for me.
I use Skype for my clients, and to talk to them since Discord is just atm. Testing out screenshare. And I want to keep buisness and Personal use apart.

But I use Discord when chatting with friends, or playing games.

So... Both I guess?

I don't have any of those (yet), but if I had to choose now, I would use Skype in the future, because Discord sounds like an MLP character to me than a Skype "clone". Sure, Discord looks fine and dandy (and quite professional I might add), and I would get it, but I just get My Little Pony vibes from it for some reason...

See, I used to be a huge Skype fan back in the days, contacting people for dev jobs, making faction chats, screen sharing to fix issues but it all boiled down to a program that is great an all but advertisements slow it down and you get spam virus bots adding you daily. Also to be honest giving someone a Skype username can give them a lot of info about you.

I now prefer Discord as I have grown closer to it and it allows role customization to joke around with friends.

but Teamspeak is also a very good program

Sounds better, looks better, performs better, more secure, far more in line with what satisfies me in a chat (which isn't my big thing anyways), has most of what Skype would offer, and offers more things otherwise.

I've always despised skype and refused to use it after a short time. Now I have no reason to ever give it a second glance. I don't screenshare random people anyways, and the system is robust enough to let ya throw screenshots up rather quickly.

Well, it depends on what you're doing. If you have or want to grow a community, then Discord is the way to go. However, if you like private conversations and private parties / groups then Skype is the way to go. Discord can be private too, both are equally private.

I personally use Discord, mostly because there is WAY more customization. Not to mention there is even bots for Discord servers, so you can make your server feel personalized and fun.

Discord is better in literally every way to Skype.

Reasons?

1. It's not some money-grab by Microsoft to have more than two people in a call

2. Your bandwidth doesn't get utterly destroyed by it

3. it doesn't have annoying sounds and is much smoother looking

Since when do I need to pay for to have more than 2 people in a call?

Video calls with more than one person require you to pay a fee (for whatever reason). That may have changed now, idk, I don't use Skype anymore.

I agree that Discord is better specifically for VOIP while gaming or talking to groups of friends, but it still doesn't have screen-share. Unfortunately that's stopping most of my friends from swapping since we use that feature so often.

Discord screen share/video calling is now in beta testing with 5% of users. My friend got the beta, and it's pretty phenomenal.

True, but I'm not entirely sure how the devs would add that in without making it seem awkward. :P

I use both, but I guess I'd have to say Skype since I've used it the most? Only ever used it to talk to my dad when he was overseas in Diego Garcia for a year due to military and all that. That was years ago though, lol
