Microsoft in Talks to Buy Discord for More Than $10 Billion

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Matrix is an open standard for decentralized persistent communication over IP.

    I've heard bad things and myself had a horrible experience on matrix.org HS, hence why most people go to ptio servers or end up hosting themselves, the easiest solution being just ems hosting. (though 3 times as expensive as e.g. a hetzner vps that you "waste" [or spend, depending if you like it or not] time - setting it up for a bit).
  2. Mattermost is an open source alternative to Slack.

    Besides Matrix there is also Mattermost which can be used with BigBlueButton integration to have quite similar possibilities in screen sharing and voice chat to Discord. Otherwise there is also Jitsi for meetings in small rooms.
  3. Bypass Paywalls is a web browser extension to help bypass paywalls for selected sites.

    Bypass Paywalls is your friend, works for bloomberg.
  4. Open-source video calling and chat platform.

    Besides Matrix there is also Mattermost which can be used with BigBlueButton integration to have quite similar possibilities in screen sharing and voice chat to Discord. Otherwise there is also Jitsi for meetings in small rooms.
  5. Engage Your Online Students. BigBlueButton is a web conferencing system designed for online learning.

    Besides Matrix there is also Mattermost which can be used with BigBlueButton integration to have quite similar possibilities in screen sharing and voice chat to Discord. Otherwise there is also Jitsi for meetings in small rooms.
  6. Secure messaging app with strong end-to-end encryption, advanced group chat privacy settings, secure video calls for teams, encrypted communication using Matrix open network. Riot.im is now Element

    Neither matrix (the protocol) or element (app and company that builds matrix products) are owned by Microsoft. Where do you get that information from?
