In a blog post Discord announced it is testing Screen Sharing and Video chat with 5% of desktop users. The testing is to catch any issues in the new system, as well as to see how their servers handle the massive increase in bandwidth. If you are one of the few chosen, you can start video calls with anyone on the program.
We’re still at least a month out from considering a full launch. Why? We’re measuring and testing bandwidth; acquiring and implementing more backend servers; and praying our code actually works. This takes time. It could also be longer than a month.
