Discord lets you Mute individual Servers, individual channels, individual tags (@everyone, @here, @yourname), and even mute individual people.It's also very easy on Skype to mute a chat unless someone mentiones certain keywords.
not anyone can join.. thats only true for THIS server, as it is a public community server. you can set up your own server (which is braindeadly easy btw) and have your own rules and ranks etc. only people you grant access will gain access.It's also easy to avoid certain individuals in this community on Skype, it wouldn't be on Discord if just anyone can join.
and if you want to avoid sertain people, then block them, and they wont be able to contact you, or anything.
and you dont like that people can DM you without adding you? well, there is a setting for that too..
It's also easy to avoid everyone on Skype by appearing offline if you want to be, while still playing something on Steam. Discord would show me active on Steam playing games. Useful for when I don't mind, but annoying for when I do.
"Discord would show me active on Steam playing games."
"Skype by appearing offline if you want to be"
skype is old, and outdated. EVERYTHING skype does, discord does, and it does it better, and it does more.
