Discord’s New Merch and Giveaways
Meanwhile, the platform has launched a slew of unique goods to its online shop and is organizing free Discord Nitro giveaways over the weekend.
The social media campaign has enlisted endorsers including Hannahxxrose, Kate Bacon, Yvonne Na, and J David Alvarez to help participate in the weekend’s activities. Details of their involvement were not revealed, but they will most likely engage on social media or sponsored streams.
Discord has risen to become the preferred voice communication and group management software for many gamers, with the company having been reported to be in negotiations to be acquired by Microsoft last year. Those discussions came to an end in April 2021.
It was announced last year that the company is working on a few new features that will indicate a shift in direction for the platform. The goal was to make it even more social by adding discovery tools and public live music events that may be paid.
